Vacation traded for Hospital Stay
Right now I should be throwing the last few items into my suitcase so we can dash to the airport and fly to Austria. Instead I am on the couch recovering from a two day hospital stay. Late Monday night, I had a severe allergic reaction to an antibiotic I had been prescribed for a sinus infection. My breathing was impaired and I passed out striking my head. I was taken by ambulance to the hospital where my heart rate dropped to around thirty beats a minute. I have been pumped full of meds, had more tests then I remember, and my arms look like pin cushions. Thankfully the kids slept through the ambulance arrival and our neighbors stayed at the house until Hubby came back to wake the kids for school. I am fine but I'll be visiting an allergist soon. So no lovely autumn pictures from Austria and Northern Italy. However considering the last few days, I am just happy to be sitting on the couch at home.
