It was a horrible night. I tried ignoring the signs. But...they didn´t ignore me.
Instead, they got stronger and stronger. And, the nausea was weakening me
by the minute. What time was it? I wondered. I got out of bed, and went to the
kitchen to take the only migraine pill I had left and the promethazine for the
nausea. Ah...what a fool I had been!!! I had convinced myself I would not have any
while in Spain...why spend $100.00 for 10 Relpax pills!
In the kitchen, as I grabbed the bottles, I saw it was only 2 A.M. Wonderful, I
thought...another sleepless night. I crawled into bed, this time waking up Pepe.
And, thank God...because without his help I would have made an even bigger
mess in that bedroom! In a matter of minutes I was not even able to get up
to the restroom and the pills came out with what seemed I had eaten since the
day I was born. Yuk!!! Pepe just kept bringing towels...and cleaning up! With
my last Relpax gone, I had to bear with it. I didn´t complain this time thinking
how much worse Marian had it.
Ice packs and tender care from Pepe and my daughter Mayra was the only remedy
during the long night.In the morning as soon as the pharmacy opened, Pepe went to
buysome "Hemicraneal". I had heard it was an over the counter medicine for migraines.
Oh, boy....did it work!!! And, it was only 5 Euros for 20 pills!!! What a relief....
what a relief! After that I slept for hours.
Later on that day, since I was feeling well, we decided to go see my cousins Mañi
and Fofi. Years back we had a store near where they live, and got together often.
We spent wonderful days together during the summers... making paellas, and
watching our kids have fun in the pool. We have always felt very loved by all of
them. The feeling is mutual. Thank you Mañi for always making us feel so
welcomed at your house.
That house. The house with the beautiful palm tree and the awesome view. It
holds so many memories for me. For a moment, I could see our kids running around
wet, laughing, and me telling them to go dry off first!!! As always we had a great
time chatting, talking about our grandkids, and of course eating!!!
Driving back home Pepe and I made plans. First, go to Plenilunio. Pepe had to do
an order and check that everything was being taken care of properly. Second, go
house hunting in Brunete. Third, go to the hospital to visit Marian. Fourth, go by
my nieces who lived near and that way I could spend a little more time with them.
Fifth, once home call my cousin Pili and Amparo, to see when we could meet.
Wow....that was a full day!!!
