Asthma attack

              
   Well it turned out to be an asthma attack.  My calf has been hurting since last thursday and that is just a strain, just a coincidence it was hurting at the same time. 

   Gee, I have never had an asthma attack when I wasn't working out or cleaning using bleach.  Bummer.  I sure hope they don't start coming more often. 

   By the time Rick got home to pick me up I was pretty miserable, but the ac in the van helped and I took my asthma med.   Of course I had to have this happen on a holiday.  Urgent care was closed and I had to go to outpatients.  Everyone in town was there I think.  Then they gave me a blood thinner and when they took my IV out it bled all over my shirt and pants.  I was going to stop at the store on the way home and decided that would look weird.  So here I am, breathing better after a treatment and in time for Rick to BBQ supper.  Thanks all for the well wishes.  Crossing your fingers worked!

Julie, I'm just reading about all this now! I know an asthma attack can be pretty awful in itself. I'm just glad it wasn't anything worse. Keeping you in my prayers on the smoke! Try to enjoy the rest of the night. (Hugs) Indigo

Goodness, Julie, I missed this.  I'm glad it was just an asthma attack.  My son just was diagnosed with asthma.  Must have been scary with a sore calf also.  Keeping my fingers crossed for you.  Chris
