Anybody familiar with Pleurisy? Apparently, it is a rediculously painful condition in which the lining between the lungs and rib cage become inflamed. How do I know this? Why do I care? Well, for the second time in less than a year, this stinkin' cook got dragged into the hospital, by ambulance to boot! Monday night, I thought I was coming down with the flu or some type of cold; I was achy all over. I went to bed and awoke the next AM to get to work. Still not feeling well, but not terrible. About 10 minutes after the crew started to arrive, I couldn't catch my breath, feel my hands, see straight or stop wheezing. I thought I was... well, I don't know what I thought. I made it to the security desk of our building where I promptly fell on the security gaurd. A day in the hospital and some fiercly strong anti-inflammatory medications and I am able to sit-up for more than 10 minutes. Why am I a sharing this whining session? Well, had I not known from previous experience, this really felt like a heart attack. I thought the long days had finally done me in. What causes it? It is the result of a virus. They tell me it lasts 2-3 days, but I haven't been able to do much other than brush my teeth and go back to bed. It is awful! It hurts to lay down. It hurts to stand. It hurts to walk. Boo hoo for me! So, 5 days later I still feel like... a pile of rusty nails. That's all. Just wanted to tell everybody out there in our community, if you suspect anything like this, get help... and fast! Okay, enough whining.
