Had to go potty. Had an upset stomach.
While going potty, enormous sweats came over me, fainted.
Fell face first on the tile floor.
Was out for a few seconds. (I think - hoping not more)
Screamed for Mark.
He came and got me to stand up.
Turned on the light.
Blood everywhere - all over floor, my shirt, my face, the bathroom door (don't ask me), bathroom rug.
Decided in my infinite wisdom that I should just try and sleep.
Woke up covered in more blood (so much for nice pillowcases) and trying to find an ER to treat me.
Goose-egg on my forehead, red and swollen nose, entire right side of my face hurts.
Update more later.
****UPDATED 11:00am Central time***
We got home about an hour ago from the ER. No concussion. No broken bones. A lot of swelling. SOme bruising (mostly from the goose-egg) but I am to anticipate more bruising. It's already starting around my right eye.
Am to try and keep ice on my nose (cause it's red and swollen) and I have pain pills and muscle relaxers. Seems like when I fell, all the muscles in my neck and back tensed up and I am having problems turning my neck.
Mark was fabulous. Asked all the right questions. Even asked the doctor about my migraines and did anything show on the cat-scan that might cause them.
Just took my pills. Must rest.
Still in pain. Muscles NOT relaxed. Slept for 35 minutes. That's it. Bruising is getting worse. aaaahhhh.....life is so damn good.
