Sorry I've been a bit absent from posting lately - I really haven't felt well the last few days and had to see the doctor on Tuesday after having chest pains for 2 days. He had me come in right away for chest x-rays and an EKG. I didn't think it was my heart, but he wanted to be sure. Turns out I have a weird viral chest infection called Costochondritis. It's basically an infection in the sternum and ribs up to the breastbone. It freakin kills and there's nothing they can do for it except let it run its course and keep me on painkillers to get through the pain. It pretty much sucks. Sitting up hurts, using my arms kill, taking too deep of a breath even hurts a lot. My doctor said that there's no known cause of it or how long it lasts. I'm just hanging on waiting for it to pass. I actually called in sick yesterday which I never do, and stayed on the couch or in bed most of the day drugged up on codeine. Jason was home though, which was a major bonus - and he helped take care of me and we caught up on American Idol and Hells Kitchen. I should be home today too, cause I still feel like crap, but I need to save my vacation/sick time for our upcoming family trip to the Oregon coast. Leave it to me to find some weird rare virus to come down with.
