So, I was up late again last night, but not because I was working on NaNo. No, from about 11pm to 3am (before the time switch) I was at the ER. See, I've been having this weird intermittent, for-no-good-reason wheezing for the last month or so. Usually it goes away on its own after an hour or two, or else I break out the humidifier, but last night none of that was working. The wheezing started around 9pm and kept getting worse.

Now, of course, it took so long to be seen in the ER that I was feeling much better before they ever did anything. But they took a chest x-ray to make sure it wasn't pneumonia (I could have told them that) and gave me an albuterol inhaler to use as needed. They also discovered that I hadn't had a tetanus shot in a long time (I'm not sure if this was relevant to the wheezing or if they just enjoy giving tetanus shots), so now my left shoulder is sore on top of everything else.

Oh yeah, and to add insult to injury, the book I picked up at the library because it sounded interesting has ended up being the 2nd in a trilogy.

Hope you're feeling better today. May I suggest... please see your regular doctor and/or a pulmonologist. I managed to ignore intermittent asthma symptoms until I ended up with a bunch of other physical problems because of it and had to put up with months of doctors and tests and drugs and hauling around oxygen tanks and blah, blah, blah before it got balanced out again. Now I try to lean toward the not so brave-little-soldier attitude with my breathing. ;-)
Yeah, I've been bad and have been putting off seeing a doctor because my regular doctor just moved, and I need to find another one. I have someone in mind but it just seems like I haven't had the time. Guess I just have to make the time. Thanks :)
Hi, Alli.

I just saw this on the internet, and thought I'd point the site out to you, in case you weren't aware of it:

Kids Need To Read

They're a non-profit, and they: provide books to libraries, schools and other institutions in need.

Nathan Fillion from Firefly supports them.

Best wishes, Morjana
