IT ALL STARTED OUT SO EXCITING....

Who would have thought..a night that I was so excited about...would end so bad... The picture of me on our way to dinner...we were meeting great friends from Florida..John and Les...Got to the restaurant, had reservations so table was ready..I ordered a drink and then we..
ordered crab stuffed mushrooms...They are to die for.... Well I shouldn't use that word die....I will saw they are fabulous.. we get these every time we go...PLUS
sauteed hot and mild banana peppers with olive oil and garlic with parm cheese over top...Melt in your mouth delish....So I had ONE slice of pepper and ONE mushroom..not even 5 minutes later I was ordering dinner and as others were placing their order I got up and headed to the restroom... I'M SICK!!!!! Like puking sick...dripping wet sweaty sick dizzy nausea pass out sick...Can't dial phone to get help sick...Finally got Mike on cell and barely got out help before he was at the bathroom door...
He said Oh my gosh what is wrong with you... I couldn't move or talk....He said I'm calling an ambulance.....no please no...I just need a minute...I said... 45 minutes I was in there.. He had one of the guys bring truck to front door.. They got me to truck and home...Then my daughter was freaking when she seen me....scared she got my mom ... I started freezing and couldn't move without headache and dizziness...still nausea..Still wanting to take me to emergency room..I said just take my BP and Sugar... all was good...I said just let me be and not move..UNTIL..the headache got worse and my face started going numb...Mike had me up and to the emergency before I realized I was going...Daughter following in her car right behind us...Oh my goodness you both are crazy...I was thinking later on....What if......They came out with wheel chair and I couldn't move....got me in and the slightest movement started it all over again...
After my Husband told them my symptoms and previous history with brain aneurysm...I was taken right for ekg and put in room.
They started IV with Morphine and anti nausea meds...after cat scan and ekg was ok.. no bleed on my brain...Thank God.. but I knew it wasn't that since my BP was good at home. SO WHAT THEN!!!
My blood work came back with low /or high.. I forget white blood count and poison in my system...WHAT???? it wasn't food poisoning..but food that came in contact with a poison!!!!! What the Heck.. no way we all ate the same thing...I only had ONE!!!! it hit with in 5minutes...Doctor said this and I'm thinking more vertigo.. that is what they thought before blood work came back...
I had to stay there till after 3 am and then sent home with vicoden and nausea meds..and told do nothing for 48 hours....
It did take me about 3 to 4 days to feel better and what a way to mess up a wonderful evening.
So glad it wasn't worse or life threatening...BUT don't want to go through it again EVER!!!! December 15th,2011....I wonder how much this dram to ER will cost.....Now that that is behind me I am about ready to start blogging for the new year....
Oh 2012 what do you hold for us???
