Well I had a horrible night of coughing. Finally about 2am I turned my overhead light on and read my book for a couple hours. Finally fell asleep about 4am and woke up at 830am feeling absolutely horrible. I called my insurance company and they said I needed to go to a hospital emergency room in order for them to pay. So Bob took me to the Methodist Hospital over in Arcadia, CA.
I was having some pains in my chest so when they took me back they hooked me up to all the monitors, did an EKG and drew 7 vials of blood. I think that doctor ordered tests on everything. Six and half hours later I was given copies of all my tests, discharge instructions and a Rx for Zithromax. The diagnosis was "bronchitis" and apparently no cardiac problems, thankfully !
I think at this point the Mexican Rivera cruise is out of the question. In the past it's taken 3 or 4 weeks for me to completely get over this stuff and I just can't see taking the chance of having a relapse somewhere in Mexico. So hopefully the insurance company will take pity on us and refund as much of our money as possible.
Meanwhile we'll hang around here until my Rx is gone, and I feel better...then we'll head home.
I hope everyone had a good Monday....and that it's cooler where you are than where I am.
