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.
