Headache day 8

My headache is worse today, so I went and saw Dr. Donohue (works with Chris).  I hadn’t seen her in a while and she was surprised that my health was failing at the rate it is.  Last we had spoke, I was doing great after my transplant and everything looked good.  Needless to say she wasn’t very happy to hear of me having to get blood and get DLIs.  Anyhow, we talked for  a while about my headache and it really stumped her.  The only thing we had to go on is that Teresa had remembered the last one was cured with broad spectrum antibiotics.  SO, she and I decide Levaquin.  I took my first days dose a few hours ago.  Head is blazingly pounding.  If it works, I don’t expect it to work is a couple hours.  She also made me promise if my headache wasn’t gone by Monday I would go to the ER and have them do a CT of my head.  If I was bleeding in the brain, all the symptoms fit, so Monday might very well be a trip to the ER.  All I know is that my head hurts.


I’m thankful that MercyOne Adel is open on Saturdays for a few hours.  And Chris and Dr. Donahue are both caring practioners… I have never had the pleasure of meeting Megan who works with them, but I sure she is great too.  It’s nice having quality medical care in a town the sized of Adel.


The thing I don’t understand is I told 2 hematologists about my headache and they blew it off.  It took me going to a small town doctor to get any suggestion of what to do.  Bah, big money doctors don’t care.  If you don’t fit in their little bubble, you are not worth listening to.  At least that is how I feel sometimes.


I was supposed to feel great after getting blood.  Supposed to turn me into a super dude.  But instead my head is pounding greatly.  I have energy, I just don’t want to move much.  This SUCKS he says on day 8 of super headache.


I talked with Jason, he isn’t upset that I am gonna miss session 1 of his take on Eberron.  Dungeons and Dragons will go on without me for a session.  I want to play, but my headache is immense, and there is no way I am putting my headset on and having many voices in my head.  Jason is a good friend, he told me not to worry about it.


This is gonna be a short blog post.  My head dost protest.  So, have fun to you people out in the world,  I’ll be hiding under a pillow.
