Today (that is to say, Wednesday) didn’t go the way I planned. Right about the time I was planning to go run the errands that I needed to get done, I was overcome by weakness all over and wound up headed to the emergency room for the second time in as many weeks.
It was an interesting experience. I was so shaky and weak when I got there that they rushed me back to a room almost immediately, and got me hooked up to monitors. When they were reasonably sure that I wasn’t about to keel over, things slowed down a lot. Took over two and a half hours for a doctor to see me, and he spent about two minutes with me.
He ordered up some tests — which took over 45 minutes to get started. Then we waited around two more hours for the results, which came up that I was totally fine — which, by then, I was.
The diagnosis: I still need to work on my fluid intake.
Unfortunately, after spending almost six hours at the hospital, it was no longer really feasible to get my errands done — which means they’ll have to be done tomorrow. I expect to do them in the morning, so I may get a late start working tomorrow (er, today, I guess, technically).
