I got my blood on Halloween, now I am sick from something else.

I got my blood for Halloween, 2 bags of type A Positive.  Took a little over 5 hours to give it to me, cuz it took over an hour to get the first bag from the blood bank.  It was kind of funny there were 6 out of 12 patients getting blood on Halloween.   The nurses all made comments about how rare having so many blood patients.  Oh well, I got my blood and I am not going to die (yet).


Instead of feeling like crap from a lack of hemoglobin, I picked up some nasty infection while I was out of the house.  Wet nasty cough.  No fever yet.   General feelings of aches and pains everywhere.  Yep, I feel like crap.  Bad enough I let Teresa give me a breathing treatment.  Seems to have helped a little.  She gave me some pearl decongestant too, she’s all “You remember this” and I am “Nope” as I swallow it down.  I don’t remember most of the medicine I was on during my stay at Mayo.  I got sick, I got better, I got sick, I got better, I got sick again a year later.  At least I got that year.


So, the question of the moment is do I feel better after getting blood?  The answer is no, and this infection sucks.


Teresa has got her nerd flag flying right now.  She is watching a history of computers on Netflix.  It’s painful for me to watch.  I may be a nerd, but I am not this much of a nerd.


I started playing Skyrim again, wait I think I mentioned that.  I am taking it slow right now, when I feel up to it.  So, real slow. This tv show is really bugging me.  So I might just jump on Skyrim again here in a  few minutes or maybe CIV4 Warlords instead.   Bah, I just got to do something to get this tv show away from me.


Anyhow, this is going to be a really short blog entry.  I have nothing else to say.  So, I’ll go find a video and end this entry.
