Bad, Followed By Good

So... early this morning, I had the worst asthma attack I'd ever suffered, and had to be taken to the ER pronto. I couldn't stand straight, walk without assistance, nor could I speak full sentences. I honestly thought that was it for me and that I was going to stop breathing.

But the docs and nurses gave me plenty of meds, and a chest x-ray, and it turns out my air passages were so inflamed that it was impossible for me to breathe. Time to get an inhaler...

(By the way, the hubs asked if they found a heart in the chest x-ray. Not sure if I want to laugh or punch him.)

I'm on some meds now and I'll see my GP within the next few days to sort all this nonsense out.

That was the bad. Now on to the good, because who wants to dwell on that rubbish?

I've already gotten some birthday pressies from near and far even though it's not my birthday till Monday. I'm a very lucky girl and I don't let myself forget it :)

My middle sister sent me a beautiful Kate Spade ring! It's insanely gorgeous and I love it so dearly.

It's set slightly askew, just like my grandmother's engagement ring, so they kind of fit into each other.
(Please pay no attention to the weird, claw-like hand in the picture... Just focus on the pretty, pretty rings... hehe)

My dear friend Margie sent over these cute arty gifts from MoMa... a leather ladybug pencil holder (I love ladybugs!) and a hilarious tape measure that looks like Pinnochio! Love!


And because I always know what I want, I bought myself some books. They were on discount so I thought, why not!? Why not indeed :)

My little sister has informed me I have a pressie arriving fashionably late. The hubs is still asking what I want. I never want for anything... everything I receive is just icing on the cake. But you know, if he'd like directions to a jewellery store, I could help him out with that... hehe...

Now to continue my convalescing on the couch. Hope everyone's having a lovely weekend! :)

So sorry about your asthma attack, that sounds scary! Have you had asthma before? (I don't know very much about it, obvs.)

And, happy birthday!
