 Yesterday I hadn't been feeling to well. Well I was scheduled to work last night from 1030p-630am. I cooked dinner for Jeremy and I and then took a nap like I always do when I have to work overnight.  I slept for a few hours.  I got showered and dressed for work, packed some food and coffee which I really don't drink that often but I needed it. I  drove to work I was having some cramps but nothing major I just chalked that up to having my period.  I took some Midol before going into the building. I got all of liens passed and first rounds done at 1230.  I started to pass the extra things like wipes, fill up the soap etc. As I was doing this I got this pain in my right side it was the worst one I've felt.  I thought it would pass. But unfortunately it didn't I had to throw up.  Over the next 10 minutes the pain had travel into my stomach. I was doubled over in pain. I went outside to see if some fresh air would help. Wrong again.  I threw up again for the second time. I told the Nurse that was working and she took my temp and everything. She told me to go to the ER. So I called Jeremy and told him that I wasn't feeling well and I need to go to the ER.  So  I drove home the best I could. He came out of the house and drove me to the ER.  SO we get to the Er and the pain was so bad that I couldn't stand up straight. I got checked in and the nurse started an IV. OUCH!!  I was given and anti nausea medicine and some pain meds as well.  I waited and a few minutes later I was sent for a cat scan and a belly X-ray.  The doctor was thinking the pain was kidney stones. Well after about 45 minutes the result of the cat scan were back no kidney stones but I did have a cyst on my right ovary that was about to burst(which it did).  That is was the pain was and why I was vomiting.  So was sent home with some anti inflammatory meds  and some pain killers. It was about 530 when we got home.  I was still in a great amount of pain so I took some pain medicine and went to sleep.  I slept until about 215. Jeremy made me some food and I slept a bit more.  So now I just have to take it easy and take the anti inflammatory medicine and I should be feeling better in the next few days. So here is to resting and being taken care of for the next couple of days.
