i'd say that thursday night/friday morning was probably the WORST night of my life. so at like midnightish i woke up to find that my other ear (as in the one that didn't burst) was killing. it took probably an hour till i was relaxed enough to go back to sleep. then at like 3 i woke up and it felt like someone was stabbing me in the stomach. i waited for a few to see if it would go away, but it didn't. so my mom took me to the hospital at like 3:30 and i went into the emergency room, and eventually i was seen by the doctor. i had to get an i.v. and the nurse tried both my arms but i was WAY dehydrated. so she tried one arm (without numbing it) and i could feel it go in, and then moving it around. ugh it was weird. but she couldn't find a vein, so she had to get the other nurse to look for it in my other arm. well, she numbed it, but i could still feel it moving around, and she finally found one. they gave me pain medicine and nausea medicine and then a whole bag of fluids. eventually the pain stopped and i could go home. so all together i missed: monday sixth & seventh period, tuesday all day (for choir concert), wednesday (first period), and friday all day. i missed my choir concert, and i couldn't go to my friends birthday party. like i said, worst night ever!!! but thanks to my mom who stayed up with me all night/morning. at least the lakers won, otherwise it really would've made me sad.
