Default Whew! What A Day! (migraine eye heart)


I woke up early with a real banger, took Imitrex, other meds, and when the
Imitrex started to kick in I snuggled back under the covers with ice on my
head. I had barely fallen asleep when Ramey rushes through the bedroom door
telling me he's hurt himself and *thinks* he might need to see the Dr. I
semi-fly (best as I can) out of bed and get him into the bathroom for a look
and oh my gawsh, blood everywhere and a jagged cut between thumb and
forefinger that looks like the grand canyon.

I wrap a cloth around the mess and still in my nightie, grab my pepsi and
ice bag and rush him off to the nearest hospital, thinking okay, he'll
probably get stitches, and wait in the car since I'm not dressed. About 45
min. later a nurse comes out to tell me they need to do emergency surgery on
his hand and that he wanted me to go home because he knew I was in pain,
bless his heart. I told her I'd rush home and get dressed and be back
before the surgery, which I did. By then my head was much worse, I took a
pain pill and hoped I could get him back home before too long because I knew
I would need an Imitrex shot this round.

It was HOURS before we could get back home....my head hurt sooo bad and I
felt so sick! He did very well in surgery and is resting peacefully as we
speak, poor guy, I've fed him and given him his meds and he's not really
complaining much at all. Once I had him under control, I finally took my
shot and slept awhile and feel much better, but I know it won't last, it's
sort of creeping in again, this one is a bad round. :-(

I had to keep sunglasses on and kept sticking the ice bag against my eye,
and I was just blown away by the fact that the nurses were so kind to me.
While we were waiting for him to go to surgery, they actually pulled
curtains around us to make it darker for me! They asked how I was feeling
and even his surgeon asked and talked just a little bit about migraine with
me. I was there for Ramey, I really didn't expect any special attention,
but we're talking small town, small hospital and although they do have their
limitations, they're big on caring, being friendly, and kind. :-)

Ummm yeeaahh, I know this is long, just wanted to share with my friends. :-)

Hugs,

~Sage

Sage:
I am sorry that you had a bad day even with a ****er of a migraine to go with
it. 5 years ago I had froken my left kneecap falling over some cement parking
blocks. Since I live in San Diego and at the time of my accident I was in Los
Angeles for a concert and I had fallen over cement parking blocks crossing the
street to my hotel and I went to the emergency room there for 3 hours and they
told me that I had broken my left kneecap and I ended up in a removable cast
and I went to the concert that night. When I got home, I went to my orthopaedic
doctor and I ended up having surgery to put 2 screws in that kneecap. I am glad
that your son is doing well and I hope that you got rid of that nasty of a
****er migraine!

My God, Sage!

p.s. Give your Ramey an "ataboy" from me. He sounds like a winner. Hope he gets
over the trauma quickly. Now he'll have a nifty scar to show. I got a whopper
under my chin when I was about 12. My parents and their friends all wrung their
hands at my "disfigurement", but I liked it ... 'still do. I have lost count of
all the girls who have said "You poor thing, how did THAT happen?"
p.s.2 'Hard to imagine, but it could have been worse. You could have been
picked up by the cops for running around town in your nightie ... and then
flunked the drug test.

Thanks Bear, you're so nice! Ramey is doing pretty good, he only needed one
pain pill today. LOL, I think he feels better than I do! How's everything
going with you and family these days? I know it's been a rough winter for
y'all.

Hugs,

Thanks Barbara, does your knee ever bother you now? BTW, Ramey is *Hubby*,
not *Son*, LOL, although the last couple of days, he might as well be a son.
:-) I can't get rid of this blasted migraine, it's driving me nuts! It was
back in full force awhile after I sent the post, I got it under control, it
woke me up again this morning, got it under control again and then again
later this afternoon. Right now I'm ok, I just wish it could last.

Hugs,

~Sage

Thank you Helen, we'll just take those purrs and vibes! BTW, I enjoyed your
story about your new found friend. I always enjoy your posts. Do you
recall a long time ago when you mentioned something to me about stuffing
one's mouth with marbles in order to speak the proper Queen's English?
Anyway, every time I *read* you, I'm doing it with that voice! LOL!

Hugs,

~Sage

Thank you dear Sage :-)


Vaguely. Mind you, if you ever hear my voice for real, I'm definitely *not*
Queen's English. My accent is that of the north-east of England, a geoordie
voice, although I'm not as broad as many, as I've been away form the north-east
for many years now. If, on PBS on the other side of the pond, you get "The
Likely Lads" or "Auf wiedersehen pet" - you'll hear lots of broad Geordie
accents - mine's a softer version :-)

Cheers, helen s
