Wow, I am sorry you had this virus. Young children pass on VERY virulent viruses.
I always worry when my grandaughters age 2 & 4 are coughing or having running
noses. My daughter doesn't seem to worry but she has just been lucky for 4 years.
In fact, we all have.
My trip to ER last Aug. (another health crisis) was horrible. It was realllly cold in the
waiting room. There was no place to lie down. The bathroom was filthy. None
of the personnel seemed to give a dang what the problem was. I was in a "good"
They finally did let me in early because I was dripping perspiration. My hair was as wet
as when you get out of the swimming pool. I was dehyrated and they could
not get a vein without doing a lot of PAINFUL poking and poking. I had an infection.
I believe I got it in my dentist's office. I did not have to spend the night.
Yes, when you have something else wrong with you a virus is much worse than for
"normal" people. I was in terrible pain but they would not give me a pain shot or
whatever because I take Methadone. (I don't know if they would have given
me a pain shot if I had been taking Oxycontin)
It will take you a long time to recover. Take it easy with Xmas coming.
I think the best way to get speedy care in the ER is to kinda clutch your chest
and moan. They do not like the idea of a heart attack in front of their faces.
