Wow how things can change in an instant. My intention was to have replied to all of you who took the time to comment on my post by now, but something very unexpected happened on Wednesday night. (I promise I am still going to reply and do some blog visiting! I am very excited about that!)
It was a normal day and started off like usual. I have my girls during the days, their father and I have joint custody at the moment and tonight was my night with them. There is a small carnival in town and I planned on taking my girls there to ride the rides and eat cotton candy. It was all my eldest daughter “Sass” could talk about, bless her heart she was so excited. So we go, even though the rain threatened to change our plans, and we had an awesome time.
Both of my girls went on several rides and ate cotton candy and stayed up past their bed times. I knew all that cotton candy was swimming around in their little bellies and they needed some food, so I chose Olive Garden. Both of them just love pasta. And this is when the whole night took a shift for the worst. This is going to sound funny, but I assure you, this was probably some of the worst pains I have EVER experienced, and I have had two children. I put it up there with that.
My girls were all wound up, and I was trying to get one to sit and eat because she was jumping around and the other I was trying to get out of the blinds and sit in her chair, in the middle of this, I took a bite of my salad and the lettuce suctioned up against my esophagus and sent it into crazy spasms. At this point, I had no idea what happened, all I knew I had just aspirated food into my lungs…and here I am with my kids in some of the most severe pain I’ve ever experienced. I sat for a minute to see if it would pass, but it didn’t and next thing I knew I had the whole staff of Olive Garden surrounding me trying to figure out what was wrong. Both of my kids in tears, scared to death. Finally, I have no idea what is going on, it was getting worse so they call 911.
Long story short, I go to the ER where I received the worst care ever, pumped full of morphine and dilaudid along with some muscle relaxers and left in the same condition I went in there. It was just all around a crazy night…..but it does make you think, you just never know how your day will end up. Luckily what happened to me wasn’t life threatening and I am ok now. But your life can be taken from you in an instant….This definitely makes me remember to live everyday like it is your last.
So anyway, the last couple days I have felt like the floor of a taxi cab and I haven’t been online. This is the post I was meaning to have up last Thursday.
I call it Random Saturday (which will go back to being Thursdays next week), which is just a collection of random pics I took with my iPhone and edited with Instagram. 🙂 So with at that, here they are!
This is one of my “things”. I always drink from two straws.
Dislike colder weather, but I love my boots!
My budding photographer. 🙂
She asked me for ice cream and I informed her it was too cold out. So she goes and puts on a turtle neck and a scarf and tells me she is now all dressed for ice cream. How do you say no to that?
Since the bumper seems intact and the sticker is a bit faded, looks as if no one took this person up on their offer…
Seriously, probably the best. pie. EVER!
Even in the hospital I have to take pics…
