This morning while taking a shower I passed out, fell, and hit my head on something, cutting it in two places. When I awoke I called 911 and went to the ER, where they put in 13 stitches (9 in front, 4 in back.) I'm doing fine now, except for a headache and pain when I move my head in certain ways. Thank you VERY much to burkefireguy11 , who picked me up at the hospital when I was discharged. I will be out of work for the rest of the day, but will still be going to Madrigal this weekend.

BTW, for all you Madrigal folks - I will be mostly non-combat this weekend, and if I look pale (not Pale, just pale) and ask for Ragnar, please get him quickly.  :-D

Dude! DUDE! That isn't good at all! D:

Have they determined what caused you to pass out in the first place? My goodness...

...but will still be going to Madrigal this weekend.

...eep? Is someone else driving you? *worried*

Yes, this. I fuss!

No, there was no indication of what caused it. They called it a vasovagal response, basically I was coughing, which can cause a drop in blood pressure or something, they think that plus the shower temp might be what caused it.

Yes, someone else is driving me - I'm riding up with Josh and Nick.

I'm glad you're ok now, but am also concerned at the thought of you driving until they have the cause of you passing out. *hugs*

I won't be driving any more than is necessary, until I'm feeling much better.

Glad to hear you're doing alright and on the mend. Any idea why/what happened?

You should stop by RI Pride and say 'hi' on your way up. :D

See my above comment to cointeach. I don't think I'll have time to stop by RI Pride. Y'all should come out to Madrigal!

Glad you're ok. Take it easy on the ride up...

pain when I move my head in certain ways

...and no moving your head in certain ways. ;-)

Ack! Do you have any idea what caused you to pass out in the first place? Are you getting a ride from someone to Madrigal? I don't know if you should be driving for a bit.

Now I'm gonna worry.

yes getting a ride from someone. :-)

Dun worry, I'll be fine. And one of the best medics in fairfax county will be at the event, so if anything else happens I'll be in good hands.

Glad you're doing alright! From working in an ER, I can say that vasovagal syncope is pretty common.

And since I know you're okay, I must joke: what exactly were you doing in the shower to make your blood pressure drop so quick? ;)
