A 30 PLUS TEAMS TOUR, SORT OF, AT JAMAICA HOSPITAL

I started doing a countdown for my next 30 Plus Teams Tour, but something got in the way.

On this past Saturday, I got sick.

Sniffles, watery eyes, and coughing.

I knew I was sick because when the Sports Diva can’t concentrate on a sporting event, yeah something is wrong with her.

Sunday it got worse.

The hoarseness and coughing turned into heavy sneezing and blowing my nose.

It was as though I had just brought some stock in the Klennex company with as many boxes of tissue that I went through.

I tried to eat but all I could manage was a scrambled egg, grapes and a cup of Honey Ginger and Cinnamon tea.

Today it got worse.

There was only one thing to do.

A 30 Plus Teams Tour of Jamaica Hospital in the Richmond Hill section of Queens.

I don’t need to tell you how family and friends were very concerned, given my age, my underlying health issues and Coronavirus’ cousin, Delta Variant, making an appearance with a vengeance here in the United States and many other places.

I headed out to the hospital not just worried about the diagnosis would be, but doing something that I haven’t done since March of 2020.

Taking a New York City subway.

With all the horror stories about the largest subway system in the United States, I was apprehensive about getting on “the Iron Horse”.

(More about that in an upcoming post.)

Three hours later in the emergency room, I got my answer.

I had something called, “Allergic Rhinitis”, which not going into all the yucky stuff that happens to you when you have it, is just a fancy schmanzy medical term for seasonal allergies.

The last time I was in the hospital for this was also in August.

August 2019, so you might say that whenever the Sports Diva goes on a 30 Plus Teams Tour in August, an uninvited guest is coming along also.
