Doctor's Visit

I was able to get in last minute at the doctor's yesterday, and they said that my oxygen and blood sugar levels are great, there's nothing to explain my shortness of breath, or any of the other weird symptoms, for that matter. However, since it didn't appear to be a dire problem I decided to come home, try to catch up on my massive amount of sleep deprivation, and stay hydrated (the army's cure-all). Their hypothesis is that it might have been anxiety related, as in a panic attack, or something like that. However, I don't know why anxiety would give me a fever, which I also had yesterday. Low-grade at 100 degrees. Tylenol brought it back down. So I'm waiting for a callback from the OBGYN to, hopefully, have another quantitative blood test done so that we can compare results and I can feel better that everything is progressing normally. While I don't feel anxious, I can't say how much is subconscious, since I obviously have every reason to worry.

My parents are arriving on the 5th, so I think I'm going to try to get up and do some things, since I did manage to get a nap after taking the Unisom. I only know because I vaguely remember dreaming before David called me and woke me up.
