Well, I Certainly Didn't See This Happening
I had a tremendously hard time breathing last night. The inhaler didn't help much and when I woke up this morning I still had what I would call congestion (no cough) and a feeling of heaviness in my lungs. And to tell the complete honest truth--I was beginning to wonder about lung cancer.
Called my doctor. Had an appointment but the office nurse decided, after talking to me, to send me to the ER for a chest Xray and a breathing treatment.
So there I was --wearing a hospital ID band. I spent 2.5 hours in ER. And the ER doctor said my oxygen levels were 100%, my chest Xray was perfect, my color was good and for my age I was extremely healthy. And they sent me home with a prescription for a Z-Pak as the doctor thought a 2 month "cough/cold" was too long.
Everyone at ER thought I looked familiar. From working down the street from the hospital. So, while I rested in my ER bed I gave out helpful gardening tips and advice.
G found that fascinating.
