Just a little update

In my last post I told you about falling down the stairs. Well I called the advice nurse for the VA and she told me to go ahead and get seen at the emergency room. So my mom and I drove down to Salt Lake and went to the emergency room. The wait wasn't as bad as it sometimes is, thankfully! The doctor wanted to have me get into a gown but when he pulled the gown out there was some really wierd snaps that we couldn't figure out so instead, we went with a sheet, it was kind of funny really. The verdict is that I pulled/bruised some muscles in my thigh but I didn't rip anything or break any bones (I didn't think I had broke anything.) So he gave me some prescriptions for anti-inflamitories, pain killers and muscle relaxers. I am at work trying desperately not to fall asleep. The doctor offered me a work excuse, but I am the back up night auditor, and the regular night auditor went on vaction this morning so there wasn't any point. We just don't have anybody trained/willing to take over, and truth be told, I don't mind. Eight days of night auditor pay will be very welcome to pay for new toys from the new Idea Book which will be coming out soon, and for Christmas pressents. I think I know what I am getting everyone but my husband for Christmas. I just don't know what to get Zorro, maybe a gift certificate to NewEgg, or another computer supply store. Have a great day, and be careful on the stairs!
