Aaaahhh, sleep, that elusive creature

I went in on Friday and got a slight unfilill -- about 1cc.  Though I wasn't happy about that, the unfill -- along with a perscription for Nexium -- seemed to do the trick last night.  I only wish it was longer, since I had to get up about 8:30 in the morning to get up and ready for a final I had at 10:30.

But wow, the sleep was NICE!  I had hardly slept since Monday.  I had called the doctor's office Friday morning, asking what I should do, and the receptionist asked if I could hold out until Monday because my fill doc was out until then.  I almost started crying, and I told her I had hardly slept since Monday.  She texted him, and he wanted to come in and help me take care of it.  Thursday night/Friday morning's episode had been pretty bad, with me jumping out of  bed coughing and sputtering because of the horrendous reflux I experienced.  I felt like I was going to drown.  I took a THIRD Protonix, only to feel myself refluxing on it (the taste, not the pill itself) later in the morning.

Anyway, sleep was WELL received.  I even took a nap today (Saturday) after taking my first of four finals.  That felt very good too.

I have an appointment with my doctor on 12/22 (already scheduled) that has now turned into a fluro exam.  We'll see how that goes.


  1. Big Fat Phew!! I'm so glad that unfill has helped - and at least the doc was nice enough to come in and sort things (kind of anyway: isn't that his job?) I guess he was nice in the way he could see you suffering but more still is the great receptionist.. I think half the time the docs are only as good as the girl at the front desk. Lovely that you got some sleep - it will make you feel 100 percent!!

  2. I recently had an unfill too and it's heavenly! SO glad you are feeling better and got some sleep!

  3. Wow.. I just caught up on your postings.. hope the unfill works.. and you are right, nothing is as glorious as a good nap.nite's sleep.

    Good Luck on those exams...brings back memories.

  4. Yes, the unfill has really worked! Not only that, luckily I'm not overly hungry (okay, I'm nervous eating, but that's not the same). I'll be glad when this is all over so that I can quit eating crap, get my fill back up where it should be, and get back on track.
