I'm back! And just in time for What I Learned This Week over at Musings of a Housewife. Want to see what other people learned? Then check out her site!
What did I learn this week? That Florida has it in for me. Seriously.
Let me back up a bit. I'm not a fan of Florida. At all. I don't do well with heat or humidity and since they've got both there all year long, it's not my favorite place to be. Apparently, Florida has taken this personally. We went back there 4 or 5 years ago to visit my husband's family and as soon as we got there, I came down with the flu. This wasn't just any flu, it was the one that was all over the news because it was killing people. I had a fever well over 103 degrees and was completely miserable. And Florida gave it to me. Not exactly the welcome gift one would hope for.
Fast forward to last week. As some of you might know, my father-in-law passed away last week. So we packed up and flew back there on Wednesday. Not exactly the ideal reason to be going back, but necessary. Florida knew I was coming. It attacked me while we were on our way there. I had horrible pain in my left arm. Not a good sign, huh? It felt like my arm was going to explode. When we finally landed in Florida, it was straight to the emergency room for me. They ruled out a heart attack right away, but were checking me for a pulmonary embolism. After they ruled that out, they didn't know what to do with me, so they sent me on my way. Uh, yeah. So I've been in pain since then and still have no idea what's going on. I see my doctor here at home today, so I'm hoping to learn more. But Florida? Enough already! Who knew a state could be so touchy?
Look for the Life is Funny carnival to start up again on Sunday. I just couldn't get it started this week. If you've got something to share, c'mon back and share it with us next week!
