I am very sleepy, yet I cannot sleep. I am doing a sleep study in a week, when I was in the hospital for pneumonia, I found out I have severe sleep apnea. I have to have a sleep study so my insurance will pay for a bi-pap machine for me to sleep with. Right now I just sleep with oxygen. I have some good news, I no longer have pneumonia. I just have bronchitis. My chest still hurts from all the coughing, but it’s nothing I can’t handle.
My birthday went well. We had homemade eggrolls. Joey got me two twelve packs of Diet Dr. Pepper, Jeff got me Grown Ups. I love that movie. Call me a moron but I am in love with Adam Sandler movies, even if other people think they are shitty. My mom got me thermals, gloves and a really bitchin’ pink zebra hat. And my friend Arvid got me SCIENCE and Morning View for Christmas and my birthday in November. He’s such a sweet guy. Along with it he sent me Songs For The Deaf on vinyl. I exploded. I wanted that so bad and I didn’t even know he was going to send it to me. He just said he had a surprise for me. Boy, I really was surprised. The vinyl is yellow and it’s so rad.
I went back to my therapist, having not seen him in a month because of the pneumonia. It was a really good session. I also went to my pain management specialist. He wants to do another epidural shot, but we have to wait two weeks because I am on antibiotics for my bronchitis. For now, I am just taking pain medication that my family doctor gave me for my back.
I wish I could fall back asleep, so for now I am going to watch Frasier. :)
