"Vertigo....Oh My!"

Good morning all.....sorry for not having posted this week but I was diagnosed with Vertigo on Monday after having some "episodes" on Friday and again on Sunday. Thankfully, after Friday's episode, I felt fine on Saturday, which was good because I had planned on meeting former co-worker, Barb, and her husband, Kevin, for lunch here in Madison. They were driving through on their way to Minnesota.

Sunday's "episode" did not get any better so early Monday morning, Don took me into the emergency ward at Meriter Hospital. We spent the day there, admitting me so that I could have an MRI, which I ended up saying no to, and I was released and home by 7 PM. It was 11 hours from beginning to end. They wanted to keep me overnight for observation and so that I could speak with a colleague (not a specialist) of my primary doctor in the morning, but I preferred coming home since they were only going to give me meds for nausea and dizziness, which I can (and have) done here at home. I have been getting better daily and hope to be fully recovered this weekend.

Poor Don has had to take over all of the household chores as well as his normal work. He worked from home on Tuesday and Wednesday, then went back to work at St. Mary's yesterday. I am VERY fortunate to have a partner who can "multi-task". ;)
