I had a bad fever over the weekend and a lingering sore throat convinced catherine to get me a doktor’s appt. They called this morning to say the doktor was sick and I’d need to goto urgent care if I wanted someone today. So here I am, using the blackberry’s web client to post to 360.
I almost got run over in the parking lot. In some ways, what do you expect, walking behind the handicap spots at urgent care. I also thought of all places to get run over, this wouldn’t be so bad.
Sore throats normally don’t send me to the doktor, but cause Sal is around, I gave in. This version is particularly painful too. So much that it got into my dream last night. It was figured out that someone had put a poisoned gun against my throat and that my esophagus (no other web window to look up spelling in…) was being digested every time I swallowed. There was a neat little animation done (in the style of medicine commercials) to explain what would happen – how my food tube would disconnect with my throat and just fall ontop of my stomach and then when I ate, food would just fall into my body in random locations. Could be fatal.
My throat only really hurts when I swallow. Its been helping me to lose weight. Anyway, back in the dream, I had 3 police detectives working with me to figure out who put the gun on me. One, I thought was cool, cause he was wearing sunglasses. Turns out he was blind. We’re about to kick in a door in some building to catch people, when I must have swallowed cause the pain woke me up.
To get my mind of the pain, I started to think about how useless this blind cop was going to be when we kicked in the door. So in this strange, dream editing state, I floated him out of the building and wanted to put him someplace more fitting. First place he ended up? Point guard for the Wizards.
I felt like Bart – my imagination failed me.
I eventually got to sleep and got another dream diagnosis – it was the head of a tape worm working its way out of me, again attacking my food tube.
This doktor says its probably just strep throat. Will find out in 10 minutes.
