I didn't feel good today....

So last night when I did my therapy I felt a little congested. Today it didn't get any better, I did my therapy longer and everything and nothing helped. All day I just felt like crud which sucked because we were supposed to go out for our friends birthday party and I was really looking forward to it!

As time kept getting closer to when I was supposed to start getting ready (we were going to the club at 9:30 so I literally had all day to try and feel better) I just knew that if I went out I would have been miserable because I just didn't feel good (my upper airways were tight....and they always are where I feel it when I am sick)

So I did what didn't want to do and I called my doctors office so they could page him so he would call me back so I could tell him how I was doing and maybe by some miracle he could tell me what to do so I could feel better and go out. So I called and this stupid lady answers and really ticked me the way my voice has been weird all day like I was losing it (but my throat didn't hurt) so here is how the conversation goes:

Stupid Lady: "hello how can I help you??"

Me: "Hi, I was wondering if you could page Dr. Faverio for me?"

Stupid Lady: "Is this an emergency?"

Me: "well not really, I am one of his patient and I am on home IV meds and I needed to talk to him about something."

Stupid Lady: "well we aren't supposed to page him unless its an emergency sorry."

Me: "um, ok."

Can you believe that?? I was shocked and so upset. So I did the next best thing...I am friends with a lot of nurses that are on the floor that I go to when in the hospital so I called my friend Jackie...luckily she was working and she paged him for me and he called me right back.

He asked me what was wrong and what happened with the answering service. So the good news is he corrected the answering service so nothing will happen like that again...the bad news is I am now on prednisone for 7 days and I didn't get the prescription in time to start to feel better and go to the bday party! Oh well...she will understand! Plus, Danny's friends got here tonight so we were visiting with them.

I am already starting to feel better so I am glad I called him. Tomorrow is our nieces birthday party so I will let you know how I do going over there! Good Night!
