Of fallen air raid sirens & sickness

I can't believe it's been three weeks since I last posted here. I apologize, this last three weeks have been like a trainwreck! Quick rundown: 1. Case of mistaken identity leading to twitter stalking/unacceptable behavior. 2. Crohn's disease rears it's ugly head again. I thought I had gotten the last flare up (over x-mas) under control with the icky prednisone & got on imuran. Apparently not, as I ended up in the hospital with it this time. Paralytic Ileus & partial obstruction. In the ER they gave me dilaudid...only too much, I think I almost quit breathing. I was gray and nodding off every 5 minutes. Kinda scary! Also got to experience the NG tube for the first time. OMG! I never want to see that thing agian! It didn't like me and at about 4 am it decided to kink up in the back of my throat and suffocate me. The poor nurse had to rip it out so fast & it made such a mess. Lame. So, I'm back on the steroids & just got done with a course of Flagyl & Amoxicilian. Doctor tomorrow. I really hope he doesn't want to schedule a scope or anything...
I have not managed to get any sort of work done these last three weeks, and it's driving me crazy. I am really hoping to get back into the swing of things this next week. Wish me luck.
While I've been laying around here trying not to sleep 23 of every 24 hours, I did look at some of my old pix I had saved onto disks. I found a few of the poor old air raid siren they dismantled in my town a few years ago. Oh, I say a few years ago, I really mean 10 years ago. eek. where does the time go? I put them up on my flickr account if anyone is interested. It always bothers me when these old things go away, and it's been happening alot lately. All I can do is remember to take pix & document for future reference.........
