Out of the ER

Well, Tuesday night at work I had a terrible bout of un-coordination, a dizzy spell, and had had slurred speech during my stream before work. To such an extent I've currently hidden the VOD.


Aha!

I've ridden this roller coaster before!

It looked like I was having another stroke, so one of my managers took me to the ER, where I spent Tuesday but after all manner of tests and time in the angry doughnut, the ER stroke center diagnosed me with...exhaustion and dehydration, which was rather embarrassing, but a relief. I slept most of the rest of the day. I seem to be fine now, even passed a kidney stone at work Wednesday, which made the rest of the day much more pleasant....ok, not pleasant but less vexing. 

After work Wednesday, I was able to get the yard cut and the porch-light fixed before the rains hit which was gratifying at the time, but is less so now as the anticipated rains haven't hit yet. 

I'm a little worried about the dehydration diagnosis, as I'm already drinking well over a gallon of water every day, which is approaching concerning levelsOTOH, the job IS quite physical.

Everything else, aside from the pending ER bill is going fine. I just have little time and less energy. 

Yard notwithstanding, I've slept most of the last two days, including today. I was concerned that my PS2 had not arrived, but it JUST showed up, which is pretty much just in time for me to figure out how to set it up for tonights anticipated 17:30EDT/01:30UTC stream

I swear blogging will resume someday. 

Anyway, for tonight though, stop by at twitch.tv/brickmuppet and if I can get this console streaming properly in the next hour you can watch me flailing around for 3 hours in LaPucelle: Tactics!

1 What's the pee color? Anything beyond straw is dehydration, the only difference is the degree.

2 Fruits and vegetables have stuff in them that makes water more effective, in certain ways. Maybe you need to eat more things like oranges or cucumbers or okra. Wet or gooey fruits and vegetables. Fruit with pectin in it. Fish. Stuff like that.
Or your balance of potassium, minerals, salts, etc., might be off.

3 Hmmm, who's the purple haired one on the left, the one not carrying a lance?

4 Sorry to hear about the kidney stones and dehydration - again - but very glad it wasn't anything worse.
