I had the fish

Home safe, but not without dramas.  At some point on the flight, after the dinner, I started feeling like I needed to throw up.  Not really sick, just the feeling that I needed to vomit. So G stood up, and I went to get out ( I had the window, he had the aisle 2 seats next to each other.). Next thing I know, I am lying down, in the aisle.  I remember hitting my back on the arm rest, but nothing else. I had passed out/fainted.  

Luckily the toilets are not too far, and free, so I go there. No actual vomiting, thankfully.  but very shaky.  I come out and had apparently freaked out the steward, especially once he heard I had the fish dinner option. I end up back in our seats with an oxygen tank for a bit, which does help. Then I just conked out for the next few hours (core skill acquired in those student travel years- I can sleep on many forms of transport). No idea what happened, although a very irritating bruised section of spine. 

The rest of the trip was ok- landed in Sydney, caught the plane to Brisbane.  I have developed a cold, so my ears still haven’t popped, but otherwise ok.  And one piece of luggage didn’t make it up.  But will be delivered today

    That’s really scary. Especially to pass out up in the air. Glad you’re back and okay.

    Ugh, how scary and unpleasant! I hate fainting; it has got to be one of the worst feelings ever, and vomiting / almost vomiting isn’t much better. Hope you are feeling better and it’s all behind you.
