I was super pumped to have Operation (I never had it/played it as a kid!) and we played it right away with some spiked egg nog.
Aaaand then I had a massive, scary asthma attack that landed me in the ER.
(The intake girl completely butchered my last name.)
I'm not sure what the deal was, exactly. I have asthma (and have had it for years now) but it's very, very mild and almost always under control. I have inhalers at home but almost never use them--and because of this, I never travel with them. If I ever have an asthma attack, it usually passes very quickly without using any medicine.
But not this night. I had black coffee, I was using asthmatic breathing techniques...no matter what I did, eventually I could barely get a breath of air. It was really scary.
Well, after 2+ hours in the emergency room and three breathing treatments and an aggressive dose of steroids, guess who's carrying her rescue inhaler ALL THE TIME now? Yep, this girl.
All in all, it was a very nice Christmas...but you know, I (and I'm sure Shaun, too) could have done without the ER!
Hope everyone else had a good Christmas too. Who's looking forward to New Years?
