to catch you up:

i am sick. really sick. i got drugs (amoxicillin & guanefesin w/codeine). i took them. i woke up last night at 2am with tightness and pain in my chest and all across my ribcage and i was faint. went to emergency room because, well, maybe i am paranoid but chest tightness and seeing pretty lights and potential for it being some kind of drug reaction made me a leetle paranoid. made jack drive me to laurel regional. did intake with RN. sat around for 2 hours feeling fine, actually. ended up leaving without seeing a doctor because well, the problem went away, scary as it was at the time. slept. finally expectorating actual lung goo. i take this as a turn for the better. still no idea what the 2am pain was about.

i haven't really read all your posts thoroughly and for this i apologize. basically my comments are: i totally agree. i totally disagree. that's what i would have said. you go girl! damn, i'm sorry... i wish there was some way i could help.

back to watching really awful television. i did stop by the library on the way to the patient first yesterday and borrow the entire ascent of man dvd series. i should watch that instead of days of our lives, shouldn't i?

and for all those waiting with baited breath, i did kind of enjoy the life aquatic. i felt the same way i did when i left the theater after the royal, tenenbaums, which is to say unimpressed. that film grew on me until it almost eclisped my love for rushmore. i don't think this one will though. not enough sympathetic characters.

Yikes, crappy time to be sick! I hope you are feeling better soon so you can enjoy the NYE festivities!

i will use my willpower to make sure if nothing else!

As before: feel better soon, and if you need anything, we're just down the road.

Whuf! I'm glad that whatever-it-was passed. And I hope you're on the road to recovery soon!

I can't think of "The Ascent of Man" without remember the Eddie Izzard bit where he talks about Sunday afternoons around the house with Dad, watching that and falling asleep.
Dec. 28th, 2004 10:15 pm (UTC)
hrm, i don't remember that bit. which one was it on?

Poor Kim! Good luck feeling better! It sounds like 2am was a panic attack? It is very unlikely to be a drug reaction between guaifenesin and amoxicillan. The chest tightness is probably from the illness, pretty lights may have been a migraine if you get those, or the guaifensin/codeine. Nothing to worry about.

Is your party for New Years still on?

Much love to the Kim!

my self-diagnosis on the 2am thing: possibly gas (i have heard it can cause pain that high). the seeing pretty lights thing was probably due to jumping out of bed too fast freaking out. far as i know, i have never had a migraine.

party for new year's is still on! jack shows no sign of infection and i had damn well better be better before friday... if for no other reason than that i need to do some work!

thank you :) love back to the brooke!!

I hope you feel better soon.

Yeah, I thought The Life Aquatic was enjoyable, but not great. The pacing was off. Bill Murray was good, but I feel like he and Wes Anderson are in a rut.

I still like the Futura, though.

My word, I had no idea. My opinion of that fine film is only increased!

2am stuff sounds incredibly scary, I'm glad you felt better reasonably quickly, tho it's still horrible that you had to go through that. Here's hoping that you get well soon! :-)
Dec. 28th, 2004 10:31 pm (UTC)
thank you!
Dec. 28th, 2004 07:57 pm (UTC)
ugh.... feel better

thanks :)

I totally agree with your total disagreement. ;)

I feel like I should be really glad you haven't been sent to a sanatorium. Or to Bath or whereever consumptive folk went.

In case you care, for future reference... My "expert" (you know, cause I'm all asthmatic) advice on illnesses that wake you at 2 am is to attempt a hot shower, and only pursue the hospital venue if that and a few minutes upright doesn't help.
Dec. 28th, 2004 10:33 pm (UTC)
I probably should have done exactly that! Your advice is sound. :)

i totaly feel your pain. have had mild cold/cough for a week, which has blossomed into all kinds of horribleness as soon as i got home from cairo. sigh. [gack.] my sister has diagnosed me with a sinus/bronchial infection - is that what you have? can we be illness buddies? - and ordered me to a doctor tomorrow.
Dec. 29th, 2004 01:51 am (UTC)
ugh, i am so sorry! glad it held off the bad stuff until you got back at least... the doc looked in my ear and told me she saw something so gave me the amoxicillin for that, just incase basically. i hope you feel better soon.
Dec. 29th, 2004 02:54 am (UTC)
Blargh. Please to heal speedily.
Dec. 29th, 2004 04:15 am (UTC)
