I ventured out of state for oral surgery on the 20th. The oral surgery went as good as can be expected when they remove 3 wisdom teeth at once. I had heard horror stories, luckily I didn't do too badly. It hurt a lot, but I stopped taking the prescribed pain meds on day two so that's to be expected. While I would have loved to sat on my butt doped up, it wasn't possible because I had to care for my kiddos after the second day.
Unfortunately, I ended up in the ER Friday night. I had several scary dizzy spells on Friday and after calling my insurance "nurse line" they urged me to visit the ER. After 4 hours, a pregnancy test, several other blood tests, and a cat scan I was diagnosed as being slightly dehydrated and having vertigo. They gave me meds and said it should get better, its most likely a result of the oral surgery - I SURE HOPE SO!
The meds make me ridiculously exhausted so I can't drive home until I don't need them anymore and the dizzy spells are made worse by riding in/driving a car. Needless to say I am still in Alabama - I am hoping to head home later in the week, but thats all dependent on this stupid vertigo.
I did do something insanely stupid - I walked my planned 5k despite the vertigo! I knew walking wouldn't be too taxing and I was walking with my mom so if I got dizzy I wasn't going to be alone. Luckily, I only had a few moments of feeling spacey. My time was nothing to write home about, in fact I was nearly one of the last people to finish, but the feeling of helping my mom finish her first 5k was way better than a middle of the pack time anyways! I will do a full race report when I get home!
I haven't been able to keep up on the blogs the last few weeks with sleeping so much - so please, help me catch up! Anything exciting I should know about? What are your plans for the next few weeks? Any exciting races?
