A Lovely Morning

Yesterday sure was an interesting one...
I got to spend a lovely morning in the Emergency Room here in Newport.
Friday afternoon I got an awful headache that would just not go away no matter how much Tylenol I took. By Saturday morning, around 7:30, I was very, very sick and I couldn't take it anymore, so my Dad took me to the ER as suggested by our New York doctor.
At the hospital, I was treated like a princess (literally, all the nurses there kept calling me 'princess' or 'honey' or 'baby doll'. It was super sweet.). While I was there, they pumped me with some drugs (just a liquid version of ibuprofen and some nausea medicine) and I was feeling amazing. I know I only got the light stuff, but ten minutes later I was sitting up in the bed giggling my hospital gown covered butt off. I was supposed to be back in New York by Saturday afternoon to go see Man of Steel with my friend Jessie and attend a cousin's graduation party today. I was texting Jessie that I had to cancel our plans. She was asking me how I was like the amazing best friend she is, and all I did was giggle back answers, because I was feeling so good... Light & giggly. 
After all of the blood work and tests, the doctor told me that I had both shingles and the flu at the same time, causing my horrible pains. Turns out I have too much damn stress in my life. I could've told him that about myself without even visiting the hospital. Go figure.
By the time I was released, I was feeling so close to my normal self that my dad even drove home with his car roof down. I felt bad because it was such a perfect beach day and he spent it in the hospital with me. I know he didn't care, because I'm his child and all, but I still felt bad. Irish Catholic guilt.
I felt fantastic the rest of the afternoon. I took a five hour nap and woke up around seven and I unfortunately did't feel as great as I did earlier. The medicine from the hospital must have worn off, because I was feeling pretty crappy again.
Now I'm laying in bed, forcing my way through this post while my head pounds like they're remodeling a kitchen in there. I just hope by this time tomorrow I can feel somewhat close to the bubbly girl I always am.
Posts are probably going to be running a bit slow this week, I'm sure you all understand.
Happy Father's Day to my amazing Daddy and all of the other great fathers in the world!
