Vertigo (and a block in progress)


I spent this morning at the hospital being treated for vertigo.  I don't usually write about personal stuff here but this has to be one of the strangest things I've ever experienced.  In the middle of the night I couldn't walk without grasping furniture and when I made it back to my bed the room was spinning at warp speed.  Any time I turned over the spinning became unbearable.  So this morning I headed to the ER to and I have a bit of fluid in my ear but no sign of infection (which is good).  My right eardrum has burst twice in the past few years and so next week I will be headed to an ENT to determine the cause of this episode.  Typing is pretty difficult as is walking and standing so I think I'll be off line for a day or two until this passes....
(above is a little block in progress)

Wow, that sounds like it came out of nowhere. Hope your spinning has stopped and you're back to normal soon.
I wonder if this is the same piece you scraped the other day?! As usual, I like it!

Take good care,
Brenda
