Good Early Tuesday Mornin To Ye

Happy Spring,

I hope you are all having a great Tuesday so far.  While reading blog posts over the weekend I found something quite funny. NanaDiana  wrote a few Irish Limericks.  One of them reminded me of someone, here it is:

There once was a blogger by night,
Who stayed up all hours to write,
When she looked in the mirror, She shivered with fear,
Cuz the person she saw there was a fright!

Does that sound like anyone you know??  Me maybe?? LOL Pop on over and see her sometime. She cracks me up. Tell her I sent you, k? :)

Well, it is 3:40 am.  Our schedule is so upside down. My goodness. lol

Not sure what to write about today. Oh, I got to go to the ER Sunday. That was fun. NOT!  I had pains in my chest on the left side. From the top of my chest to the bottom of it. They just wouldn't go away. I was thinking...well women get different symptoms than men if they are going to get a heart attack.  I couldn't quite remember what they were and I couldn't find the email a friend sent me about it. So I thought I don't want to be a worry wort for nothing..but at the same time I don't want to be dead as a doornail (Yikes!) because I didn't go to the hospital so off we went.

One EKG, one chest x-ray, several blood draws, and one  pain pill later  we were home. All that of course took about 3 hours or so. The doctor said that I have Pleurisy. That is an inflammation of the lining around the lungs and chest wall. It is caused by an infection, an injury or from diseases such as pneumonia, TB or even the flu.

Well, I hadn't had any of those things and I wasn't showing even half the usual symptoms of the condition. I am not quite sure how he came  to that diagnosis. Since he told me this before the x-ray or any of the tests results came back. It took the little ol' pain pill about an hour to kick in and I was good to go.  The  pain has came and went a couple times since then. And today it even hopped over to my right side. Weird. I am supposed to go to a follow up appt with my Dr. but can't get in til a week from now.

I am doing ok and not worried about it anymore. 

Ok, weather report. :)  We got a few inches of snow Sunday and during the night into Monday.  I think the next few days are going to be nice.

Well I guess I should go. Have a great day. 

Take care.....



  1. That does sound like you.. smile..
    I read another post about someone having similar pain...
    Love and Prayers..

  2. Keeping my fingers crossed it's not something serious. Take of yourself!

  3. I am just getting around to reading posts. Have been gone all day. I'm glad you got a kick out of that limerick.

    I am so sorry you have pleurisy-That is SOO miserable and it's symptoms often mimic a heart attack..that same heaviness and pain. It does take a while to go away completely. Take good care of yourself. Prayers and love- Diana


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I always enjoy hearing from you. Have a wonderful day. :)
