I was dead-uh, but now I am alive-uh

It seems that a trip to the US would not be a trip to the US unless I get to spend most of our vacation money on health care.

We are still not sure how much the bill is for our little jaunt to the emergency room yesterday, but I just HAD to up the ante on last years journey.

After suffering from heat exhaustion on Tuesday evening it progressed to dehydration. Three days of body aches and just a general feeling of wanting to die and I decided we had better do something.

On top of suffering from dehydration I also have a flu like virus. It's just the way I roll. I don't do things in halves.

The good news - The two litres of fluid plus a bit of motrin that was pumped straight into my veins on Friday evening ended the three days of continual head implosion. And now I am feeling 100 times better.

Hopefully this next week will bring more photos, a LOT more fun and a lot LESS emergency rooms.

Note to self: Do not move to Arizona if you can help it.

Take care of yourself dear. Drink till you pee every thirty minutes. :)
