Fiftieth Post!

My weekend didn't exactly go as planned, I guess you could say.

I went to the Emergency room twice this weekend for pleurisy, an inflammation of the lining of the lung. It's so painful. I cannot take a deep breath beyond shallow breathing, and it hurts to even move sometimes.

The first time I went they told me what it was and told me to take Tylenol and Ibuprofen, but I had to go back because it hurt so bad that I was crying. I couldn't even breath shallowly without it hurting. I got a shot and a prescription for oxycodone, which surprisingly isn't doing much of anything. It still hurts a lot, but I want it to get better! Not only because I don't want to be in pain anymore, but I want the NYC trip with Steve to still happen!

I go home tomorrow, but it should be interesting. I have to pack tonight, and maybe even load my car, but I don't see it going well. See, not only can I not breathe correctly or move, but my shoulder is killing me too. I think those muscles may be trying to compensate for my lung.

This just sucks a whole bunch. I just want to go home.
