the hospital trip

Well I thought since today was the 1 week anniversary since my "hospital trip" I would put that blog in now since I never actually entered it when it happened.

(From notebook on Jun 20th)

Well now is now almost 11am an I am still in the hospital waiting room waiting to be checked out. I had diarea since Friday and I was told by the heathline when I called them on Sat. night the if it continues past 48 hours then it would be a good idea to go to the hospital. I haven't eaten anything yet and I have no desire to eat.. I am actually kind of scared to.. All I have been drinking is Gatorade. I think it is whats keeping me from passing out. The nausea comes in and out like waves.

It's quite interesting to watch the people who come in and out of here. Right now there is a girl probably in her twenties crying uncontrollably. She is with what looks to be her husband and son. The sad thing is that there is no emotion coming from the "husband" at all and the kid doesn't care either. He is just sitting listening to his walkman and playing his gameboy or whatever it is. They both almost seem to be ignoring her. Bizarre.

Leanne and Harley just left not that long ago from the waiting room. We decided to take Harley in with us because her woke up this morning in lots of pain and kept on pointing to his groin area saying "OOWEE".. but once when we got here.. he was just ready to party. Running all over and starting to get a little impatient. Leanne was not feeling up to running after him so she checked him out in the bathroom and he did not seem as bad.. so she decided to take him home.

So all in all it has been a pretty uneventful weekend other than the fact that I have been riding the porcelain bus every half hour or so.

It all started since last Friday.. at first I thought maybe I had food poisoning from either the BBQ at work during the day or the steak night the I went to in the evening. But as far as I knew, nobody else got sick either.. so it probably wasn't that. Maybe I caught the flu that was going around. Mitch had it a couple of weeks ago and was admitted to the hospital because of dehydration. I don't think I am that dehydrated.. my saving grace is for all the friggin Gatorade that have been drinking. .... I also thought it would be a good idea to go here because I was diagnosed with "fatty liver" a couple of years ago. At the time when I was diagnosed with it I think the doctor thought I was lying or something. I swear she thought I was an alcoholic because that was the main cause of it. After watching the movie "supersize me" I found out that you can also get it from eating too much fatty foods.. So now I don't eat out as much as I used to, but I wouldn't sat that I have "the perfect diet" either.
So I sit here and continue to wait as I go to the washroom every 30 to 45 min. I wonder how they "sample" this stuff.. will they make me crap into a cup? hahaha.. Leanne said that they they would probably make be go into a bed pan or something .. yeesh .. not looking forward to that.

I am listening to "Kaiser Chiefs - Employment" right now on the walkman while I sit here. Harley got it for me as a father's day gift along with an Indian Motorcycle baseball cap. This album is really good. I would say that it will probably be my summer album of 2005.

Well I am going to put this pad down now and co.... nope .. well they just called me in and now I am sitting in bed #21. Time to wait and see.

They came and checked my blood pressure and temperature. My blood pressure was a little lower than normal and my pulse was a little faster than it should be, and I have a slight fever. But the nurse didn't seemed to concerned about it .. so that is a good sign. They also gave me a "hat" to put in the toilet so they can take a sample. I will probably have to wait to do that through .. because I just went before they called me in.

There is a guy in the other bed across from me who is swearing constantly.. I overheard that he got in a car accident. When the police where here to take his report he mentioned he didn't remember and had no clue what happended.. the last thing he remembered was that he was bending over to pick up his lighter. ... Smart. .. He got a ticket for going through a red light.

Well the doctor just saw me and he is going to have some blood work done and take a stool sample. They mentioned that the stool sample results will take 24 hours (and will call be at home tomorrow if anything bad appears.. no news is good news) and once they give me the results of my bloodwork I should be able to go home b From what he sees is looks like I am still fighting a bad viral infection.. and that it is taking me a little longer to get over it then normally. So .. now I continue to wait again.

... I am not sure how long it has been now .. but I had an urge to go to the bathroom. Well lucky for the "analyst" but I didn't have my regular diarea this time, but some sort of green substance. .. maybe it's just green from all of the damn Gatorade that I have been drinking.. I just someone would get here and do something with it, I don't feel comfortable just leaving my poop sitting here beside me.

I wish I brought my watch.

This "car accident guy" is really starting to get on my nerves. He must be thinking that it if he makes more noise he will get more attention. I saw him walking around and stuff.. he doesn't seem doesn't look that bad .. maybe a bit of a nose bleed.. but that it it .. maybe his arm?? .. not sure. but he sounds more like a whiner than anything. ..
Well the nurse just came in and gave him some morphine. That should shut him up. Thank god. hmmm .. for them to be giving him morphine .. maybe he broke a bone or something.

For now .. I again will continue to wait.

They came and picked up picked up the stool sample (.. what there is of one anyway.. ) Now I am feeling pretty tired so I am going to close my eyes until someone comes an opens them.

later..

The doctor came back and said that the blood work looked pretty good and that they will call me tomorrow about the stool sample if anything out of the ordinary comes from it.

For now he wants me to stay at home and not go back to work until Wed. Which kinda sucks because I need to build up my holiday days som I can take time off in January (??) When the baby comes.

Not so bad though .. I was probably at the hospital for about a total of 7 hours. So.. now I wait for my ride to come get me..

The funny thing when I went outside. The "car accident guy" walked right past me almost pushing over while going through the door. He looked pretty good.. and pissed off as well. It was funny because just as the doctor came and see me I heard him talking to him saying .." well you look ok .. no broken bones ..so you are free to go" .. the guy then started saying he was in pain again..

Yup .. he was just a whiner .. ..

.. or looking for a shot of morphine.


So that was my day a week ago .. fun huh? .. today was not as exciting.. Leanne and I got to sleep in a little bit though .. that is always good.

Summer album of 2005

Hello friends, I have been sick for the past while. I wrote a blog posting for when I went to the hospital last monday .. and I will post that hopefully by tomorrow. Don't worry .. I wasn't admitted or anything so don't worry I didn't die .. well ..actually I guess you already know that I didn't die. Not much to say at the moment other than the System of the Down album still rules.. and I have now decided on my "Summer album for 2005". Which is Kaiser Chiefs - Employment. I am hoping I will be able to make it out to Colin's lake this summer and blast it while I soak my fat sexy ass in beer under a shady tree.

What will your summer album of 2005 be? Post it in the comments in you know!

Screw it

I was going to make a blog for everyday .. and back date when possible. but .. now I say screw it .. and I am going to do it when I can, and not bother making up for lost days. But there are a couple of things that I wanted to mentioned that happened over the last weekend before Batman came to visit me.

We finished the garage sale fairly successfully. All proceeds from the money that we received will be going into the house for something. Not sure what yet, maybe backyard landscaping.. possibly flooring for the hallway. Amy came by that weekend and gave us a bucket of cookies .. it wasn't till after the weekend I realized ..Shit .. maybe she wanted to sell them?? .. but that was soon forgotten again while I entered another one into my mouth.. mmmm. Amy also lent me the new System of a Down album Mesmerize. It actually is really all I have been listening to since. So .. if you were wanting to know what I have been listening to the last days. That's it. I think I am driving Leanne up the wall with it. Harley really likes it too. He likes to jump and down on the couch anytime B.Y.O.B. plays.

Speaking of Harley .. there was another thing that he did over the weekend that totally messed with my head. Harley's morning ritual is to come and wake us up and try to get us out of bed. This time he decided to hell with us and went into the living room. I could hear him playing with the toys and the broken glass so I didn't think much about it... but then it was quiet. And you know .. that will mean trouble. So When I got out to the living room, there he was running back to the chair, I then noticed that the TV was on and Spongebob started playing. That was not really out of the ordinary, but the thing that ducked me up was the fact that disc that was originally in the player was now sitting on top of the player "upside down" like I do it as not to damage the disc and the case for the spongebob disc was sitting there. So he switched the discs, closed the cabinet and turned on the TV. It still blows my mind when I am thinking about it.

We went to Avonlea last night to see my nephew "graduate" from playshool. But also "Strawberry The Clown" was there as well. I never actually got to see her perform. Now I did.. I enjoyed it. Leanne was a little freaked out about it though. "The Show" was at the Avonlea School in the Gymnasium. Harley was getting a little impatient so Leanne decided to take him into the hallway and let him run. Unfortunately to Leannes demise.. the clown was in the hallway as well. She was ok though .. she didn't pass out.. only hyperventilated for a little bit.

Also, today when I came to work, we were notified that the new guy is no longer working with us. Not surprising... it just wasn't his cup of tea.

Well, at least I got free porn out of it.

He's Batman!

Batman came by for a surprise visit today. I was just going out of the house to purchase some pie and I heard a rap on the fence gate. Sure enough it was Batman. I haven't seem him for the longest time. And he looks great. He went from Adam West Batman to Val Kilmer Batman. .. and if he keeps going the way his is .. soon he will be George Clooney Batman.

He was over until about 1:30am. And in my opinion he left too soon. But you know how Batman would be, he hasn't been here for a while. While he was over I looked outside. At first I thought it was Gotham City sending out their signal. But I was wrong. It was actually a van on fire in the backyard of the house across the street from us. Leanne called 911 because .. well Batman was on vacation. He even got to experience Rhubarb and Strawberry pie for the first time.

Free Porn

Wow.. another week is gone. Amen!! I thought this week was never going to end. I really dislike working the evening shift. It makes my brain go numb after a while.

So the new guy at work asked if I wanted a porn DVD for free. .. I thought what the hell .. who am I to turn down free porn. .. I thought it would have been like a burnt disc.. no no .. he throws me this disc across to my desk.. and it was a factory disc.. pictures plastered.. Fuck!! .. I shove it right away underneath my desk saying .. Don't you ever do that again!!!

I at least thought he could have been more civil about it .. you know .. like doing in the back parking lot when nobodys looking ..

psst.. psst .. hey buddy .. want some free porn.. ?

Garbage Sale

Well.. Today was the first day of the garage sale, unfortunately I was only there for the first 30 min of it .. but hell. I ended up selling a bunch of stuff before the sale even went on. Thanks Hema. but it was a good thing he sent me the list when he did.. because there was already people digging through them and buying some. I sold a fair amount of them already in the first half hour I was there. Hell .. I might need to go buy some more with the money I made so I can sell them.

Judging from the comment from Amy.. it seems that she was there and bought Pat Benetar. Hopefully she brought cookies. mmmmm .. cookies.

The latest Toon on Homestarrunner.com is really funny. I suggest you watch it. Click on "watch it" to watch it. .. but that is if you want to watch it .. make sure that you are clicking the the first watch it. Because it won't work on any of these other watch it's. So watch it. .. Ok .. that one it worked. But it wasn't included in the other "watch it"s

As you can see .. I was a little bored there..And .. if you are really bored.. you can watch this too.. but you have to be really bored.

bloyp

I am in the downstairs bathroom shaving. I shave downstairs because the sink is actually IN FRONT of the mirror, unlike upstairs, where I have to be over the side of the sink to see myself. Hell .. I might as well stand in the toilet. I would like to replace that mirror. Someday, like maybe after I win a lottery.

So .. anyway. I am shaving and I hear Leanne flush the toilet upstairs and the water flowing down the pipe.. soon after from my left I hear **bloyp**bluggerspap*goop** look to the toilet beside me and I see air bubbles and the toilet water rising.... Ah Shit I am thinking to myself The toilet is going to overflow.. son of a. I grab the plunger and start a pumpin. The water slowly went down. Hmmmm.. That seemed to Work

HEY LEANNE!! FLUSH THE TOILET AGAIN

**fooooooossh*****bloyp**bluggerspap*goop**

Ah .. Fuck Continue with the plunger.. and then from the right.. ***shoowwwzzzz**byupppppp** What the fuck! Now the fucking water is coming up in the shower!! CUNT!.

So .. to make an already uselessly long story into a short one, We called the City of Regina sewer service and they came to my house while I was at work today. Of course everything was working fine now. They checked the sewer drain from the house out to the street.. and nothing was plugging it. Which is good I guess because I had visions of them ripping out my tree and have of my yard to replace the pipe underneath.

.. Something tells me that my water bill is going to be a little higher next time.

garage sale?

So Leanne and I started to pack up stuff this morning to sell at a garage sale this weekend. I am going to sell all of my factory cassettes and movies. Not sure how much I can get for them though.. I was thinking of selling the movies for 2 bucks each and the cassettes for 50 cents or 3 for a dollar?.. hmm .. something like that .. not sure. Don't know what the going rate is for shit anymore.

I don't have the heart to sell my vinyl or video games though. Some things never leave.

damn front end loader

Went to the farm for the 3rd and final chapter of Harley's Birthday Celebrations. He got a Tonka front end loader from his Aunt Lori and Uncle Jason. He loves it .. but the funny thing was that last night he was so overtired and full of sugar and preservatives that he was just a grumpy little bastard. He would get angry and scream at the Tonka truck if it didn't do what he wanted to and then he would get angry and scream if it did. He then went to bed cuddling with it. Crazy little kid.

celebrate good times.. come on!

Harley celebration's part two. My side of the family came over, and a Harley's friends Autumn and Eve came over with their parents. He was definitely spoiled and cleaned up pretty well. Autumn got him this cute doggie flash light that barks and a sweet book and Eve got him some "Tonka Tough" dinkie cars. And let me tell ya .. those cars are pretty damn heavy when they get smashed up against your head. Harley found out how they felt in his ass.

He also got a helmet from his grandma, other bike gear pads from his aunt. Pooh basketball clothes from his adopted auntie. Gold club set and splash ball from his uncle and auntie. and a whole bunch of clothes and candy from other.

The candy roller coaster has begun.
