Not particular bad drama (although the only really good drama is on the stage/movies/tv), but drama never-the-less. stonebender
was going to take me out for dinner Sunday night at some fancy restaurant in S.F., but I was sick all weekend. The doctor failed to mention the possible 4 - 6 weeks of gallstone like pain you can get after gallbladder surgery. I was in so much pain Saturday night, I thought they made a mistake and didn't take out my gallbladder at all. Sunday was better, but still not feeling well enough to go out.
For our actual anniversary meal on Monday, dbubley
made a very tasty meatloaf. When I came home from work, I added a baked potato, left over asparagus and some garlic bread and we had a very nice meal. Thank you dbubley
A few hours after dinner stonebender
said he wasn't feeling well. I felt his head and he was a little warm. It took us a couple of more hours to get to bed and by this time he was burning up. Since he didn't have any more congestion than he normally does with his allergies, we had a pretty good idea it would be cellulitius and not a cold. Once undressed, it was immediately apparent, with the bright red and hot patches on his inner thigh and backside, that we were right.
A 1 am call to his doctor's office service got us a call back in about 15 minutes from the on-call doctor. Once he explained what he had, she called in a prescription for an antibiotic at the 24 hour pharmacy. This pharmacy not only is open 24/7, but it has a drive through pick up. By 2:30 am I was back home with the meds. He is now sleeping under a heavy cover, staying very warm while his body fights this creepy little bug. We know from long experience that the sooner we get him on an antibiotic the better. Even 5 or 6 hours would have allowed it to spread over more of his body and he would be feeling crappier for longer. It's been at least 5 years since he's had this infection, we've become complacent; we use to keep a full course in the drawer to save waking up a doctor and my road trip in the middle of the night.
So that was our big anniversary drama. I could have done without it, but all in all, not the worst thing either. Overall, we're just tired of all the illness this year has brought to our family. Enough, okay.
Now, off to bed. I need to be up in about 3 1/2 hours for another fun filled day at work!
