My Drugged-Up Life of Emergencies

by on Jul.06, 2009, under News

All right. I confess. There is no episode for today.

Last Friday, I was admitted to the E.R. with the worst headache that I have ever had. I don’t think I’ve ever quite felt that way before. The did CAT scans, chest x-rays and a spinal tap. For the next two days, I was only happy when the pain meds kicked me into unconsciousness.

In the end, they told me it was a tick-borne illness.

Now I’m not a dramatic person… or at least, I’m not someone who gets sick a lot, but ever since Bonnaroo, things have been hairy for my family and me. Constant ups and down, fevers and chills, pain and suffering. Needless to say, I never want to go to Bonnaroo ever again.

This morning, my wife presented the exact same symptoms that precipitated my visit to the E.R.. So much for the tick-borne illness theory. If what happened to me happens to her, she is in for a lot of pain.

So everyone hope for the best for Cog, and we’ll get that episode to you soon.
