Emergency Room Scare!

Hey Everyone!

Like I thought, I wasn’t really able to post anything yesterday. I sometimes have to cover for a co-worker when she is off work, and yesterday was one of those days. She works a funky shift, and it is hard to get anything going. On top of that like the title states we had a bit of an issue the night before, that shift. Everything is, seemingly, fine now but meh.

Lets start Monday morning. I signed up to give blood at work, like I always do. The machine for double red blood cells was free, and I asked if I was able to give more. They checked everything over and cleared me to give double reds. They basically take more of your red blood cells and in the process put your plasma and saline back in periodically. I have done this before and it has been no big deal. Towards the end I felt a little light headed but nothing out of the ordinary after losing two pints of blood haha. After I sat down and have a juice, brownie, and pretzels to keep my energy up. I returned to work like normal and ran through the rest of my day. Later that evening I ran to Lowes with my brother and got a chest freezer and groceries with my wife. I kept the “heavy lifting” to a minimum, but maybe I still over did it. It was early to bed since I had to get up much earlier, but when I got off the couch I got some weird blurry vision and my head felt really weird. I went up stairs and started having a panic attack. So that surely didn’t help anything. I told my wife to pack up the baby and take me to the ER. I was feeling better for the most part but wanted to check it out anyway. I forgot to mention when they put in the needle to take my blood it wasn’t going in my vein easy so they have to mess with it. The doctor said that the red on my arm could be a blown vein or hematoma.

Either way I knew that it would bruise, I just didn’t think this was normal. I also had a weird fluid like pain in my ears when I moved my head, as well as a funny feeling in the back of my sinuses. The ER doctor and my aunt, who is in the medical field both thought it had nothing to do with giving blood, but I can assure you that none of this happened until right after I did. I slept that night and woke fine in the morning. Worked my early shift and went home. Once home I started getting a headache and that intense ear pain again. I still haven’t got any answers! I slept fine again and feel great yet again. I’m curious to see how tonight will go. Am I going to have this crap happen again? Who knows.

So long story short I didn’t have anything to post yesterday haha.

Here at work I did get my cork board and had it hung up!

I can now see all my stuff without having to find a file somewhere else. Yippie! I’m gearing up to work on a few more PCs that just came in the mail, and get ready to cover my other co-worker since he will be off for about a damn month in like two weeks. He is going on a church mission to 11 countries in Europe! How fancy is that? I wish I wasn’t afraid to fly because I would love to go to Europe.

Anyway that is about all from me today. I’ll keep you posted on anything new and exciting. Oh, I also finished the 5th season of “Orange is the New Black.” I won’t say anything because I know most people still haven’t finished it, but it is pretty good!

I’ll be back again tomorrow. I hope to see you then! 😀 😀

Projects, Picnic, Softball, Blood Drive!

Hey Everyone!

I had a super busy weekend, but a successful one! There were a few minor set backs that were weather related so I had to find the best way to still get everything I wanted done. Over the course of the weekend I was able to fully redo the paint and carpeting on my porch and stairs. I have a few really neat side by side pictures below:

First is the bare wood floor after I ripped up the old stuff and after I put down the new!

Next we have the terrible cemented stairs before and after painting. I know they suck but I hate cement and I was sick of it haha.

Lastly we have the carpet down the stairs covering up the blemishes and protecting the stairs from future weather.

I may go back through and paint over the areas where the glue is showing, but I’m not sure yet. It will probably chip off easy enough once it is super dry .

Saturday was our company picnic. We stopped off at a local drive in diner, and ate with my wife’s grandma and mother. They have great milkshakes and well, everything.

From there it was off to the amusement park. We brought the baby, so some of the people I work with could see him for the first time. We also wanted to see how he would handle traveling a bit farther than normal. If you were wondering it went smoothly!Here are just a few shots of the park:

Of course, we had to hit up my favorite ride. The train! I don’t ride rides so the train gives me all the excitement I need haha.

Sunday was of course Father’s Day. This year I am a father, which feels super weird. My wife got me this awesome key chain. It is a really neat idea.

I actually woke up Sunday and finished the carpeting on the stairs first, then went and played softball. Our games sucked. We played like crap in the field and had too many errors. We lost the first game very convincingly. The second game was against arguably the best team in the league and we should have beat them but we gave it away. That game ended with a score of 32 to 31 in the bottom of the 7th. :/

After ball my brother and I got cleaned up and headed to my parents house to celebrate the day further. We had burgers and hot dogs on the grill. The two cousins were there together so we had a few pictures.

It was a great weekend overall. We had some heavy storms Sunday and rain on Friday but it was all good in the end!

Today At work we have a blood drive. I totally forgot all about, thats why this post is a bit late. I signed up to give double reds. I was surprised when the girl hooking me all up was a girl I went to high school with! I haven’t seen her in a full 10 years, so it was nice catching up with her while I was over there.

That’s all from me folks! I hope you had decent weather and were able to enjoy the weekend to the fullest extent. I may or may not be on here tomorrow. I come in to cover someone elses shift and have to be here at 6am blah! We will see. Have a good one! 😀 😀
