pain in the neck, continued

Well, after my post last night, things got progressively worse. We went to our friends house for dinner and some games with a few other couples. The percocet was making me feel a little queesy so I only ate a half of a piece of pizza. About 9:30 when we were finishing up a game, nausia came over me pretty quickly. We left about 15 mintues later and to spare you the gruesome details, lets just say there were various parking lots and curbs on the ride home that I became personally acquainted with. By the time I made it home, I made it upstairs to the toilet to be sick for the 4th and final time. As you can imagine, my mother, my nurse-sister and my husband were concerned. Not sure if the sickness was related to the neck pain, or if it was just a super delayed reaction to the percocet, they considered a trip to the ER. Luckily, due to the business Matt is in, he had the number of a doctor they work with. He was off that night but talked to Matt on the phone at 1030 on a saturday night! He listened to my symptons and thought that just keeping me home unless my sickness continued would be best. Shortly after Matt got off the phone I was able to fall asleep.

My neck still hurts a ton today. My sister-in-law Kayte, who is also a massage therapist gave me an impromptu neck rub to work some of the tense muscles that were balled up in my neck. I've been heating it since then, but we'll see how it feels in the morning.

Your prayers are appreciated. I dont have sick days to take at work so I hope it feels good enough to sit at a desk all day looking at a computer.

How was your weekend?
