I know I was going to do a look back today and I think we should. Let's look back on the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2018 on a personal level (not the world) tomorrow. Today I have to tell you this horrendous happening.
Last night we arrived at Vancouver airport 10 hours early for our flight out to Brisbane. Quite a long time, but oh well. We were well prepared for our 14 hour flight. We made sure we had eaten, we bought special Trtl neck pillows which are meant to support your neck so you can sleep really well. Here is David modelling the pillow. We started out good, three people in our three seats across...that's ok. Had a bite, cool. Then we settled in with our pillows to try them out.
I was sleeping I think pretty well, all going ok, but then I suddenly felt horrible. Like I was going to pass out or vomit, or maybe both. I wondered if something I ate was not good and I was having some type of crazy reaction. It was really intense. I decided to try and privately freak out in the bathroom and maybe do whatever needed doing. Did not solve the problem. I wondered if I might have a seizure....was blacking out seriously.
All very horrible. Then the flight attendant was suddenly there giving me juice and checking my oxygen. The guy next to me got moved so they could sort out whatever was happening. The entire episode passed in what felt like an eternity but in reality was probably about 20 minutes. I felt so happy to be ok and alive and not needing the plane to turn around in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! Yay life!
So what happened? Possibly the pillow may have partially asphyxiated me as I was sleeping and it took a while for Janet to get back to normal Janet. Maybe. It's a working theory. It's a bit hard to be sure. Weird man!
Want to know the good part? Because the guy had to move and now everyone is so nice to me, I got to stretch out and actually get a couple of hours of sleep after the episode was well over. Ha! I was completely fine after that.
Now we are in Brisbane waiting for our flight to NZ. Sigh...another 10 hours or so again. Devils for punishment we must be.
Happy Day you guys....LIVE LIFE!! Yeah!
