Down but not out

I'm back. Kinda. I still get a little woozy when I do too much but at least the urpy feeling has passed. It's hardly worth throwing up if there wasn't hot sex and a new pregnancy involved so I'm glad that part is over.

I was bent over in the attic picking up some Halloween decorations when son started to run up the stairs. They aren't allowed up there because there are some husband traps spots of insulation that they could step on and fall right through. So I flung my head up as fast as I could to yell, "NOOO!" and whacked it really hard on big fat 1926 beam. I saw stars.

This all went down on Friday. We figured out that I scored myself a concussion when husband asked me to throw him the remote on Saturday afternoon. I meant to throw it at him and instead I slammed it against the wall opposite of where he was sitting. Whoops. Later that night I kept waking up and swatting at things that I thought were flying
above my head. This did not go over well with husband, especially when I woke him up to tell him I thought angels kept trying to come and take me away.

So when I was still spinning on Monday I forced myself to cough up the $20 copay and go in. The Dr. scared the pants off me when he ordered me to get over to the hospital and do a CAT scan right that very minute. Of course, my mind raced through all the scenarios I had Googled the day before, so I was now convinced I would have a seizure on the drive over and that would be the end of Lotta. But, no blood on the brain. I'm gonna live. I just have a whopper of a concussion.

Thanks for all your nice comments! Husband was very sweet to blog for me - but kept telling me how "Judi" and someone named "Joy" kept commenting that he should have sex with me to speed my recovery. I'll get you back ladies.

I'm glad you are okay!

I think that "I" read that you shouldn't have sex for 6 months after a concussion.......

Careful with that noggin girlfriend. We need that awesome brain of yours!!

Ouch! Glad you are back and feeling better. I was worried the concussion might have robbed you of your memory or your sense of smell, or worse yet, your sense of humor. Good to see that's not the case!

Yeah, I'm wayyy behind. But wanted to say I'm glad you're ok! I was concussed once. The hubby took me out to get me all liquored up so he could take advantage of me and then dropped me on a big concrete stepping stone on the way into the house that night. Saturday it was, didn't mention until Monday when I stilllll had a "hangover" that perhaps my inability to sit up without bawling from the pain in my skull was from that "slip on the ice" ... that I didn't remember! UGH! I had to do the "get a CAT scan NOW" thing too. No bloody brains for me either, but I still couldn't sit up without being in pain for a full week. Ouch. Concusseds suck! ;)
