Most know I have health issues. Well today dropped me a day of spending all day and I mean all day at the hospital. I was having difficulty breathing and some chest pain. I knew it wasn't my heart condition though for it didn't feel the same. However, I was scared and felt terrible. Thank goodness Nancy was home and I used her car refusing to let her take me. She was taking care of James and didn't want her to juggle, both yes I got yelled at by many including her and the doctor. Yes I learned my lesson and won't do that again. Sorry for scaring her and Eric.
I got to ER and they rushed me right back without hesitating even for having a few in waiting room. Hooked me up to heart monitor, put on oxygen and I don't know what all. They did blood workup, EKG, blood gases, etc. EKG showed some concern, gave me two nebulizer treatments, took vitals again. By time Eric got there my blood pressure was 186/112 was higher before he got there don't remember though what it was.
They ended up putting me p stairs and monitoring rest of day. Before going home I had to pass a EKG and cardiac workup. I did finally however, I will be going to Springfield to cardiologist and having a stress test done to compare with ones I had done before.
I actually have two issues going on my COPD flair p and my cardiac issues is off balance. However the COPD can be causing parts of that issue they said. Jst want to rule ot all possible more cardiac issues.
I am now up to 11 pills, nebulizer treatments every 2 hrs (will go to 4 hrs), increased lasix, increased one blood pressure pill, adding back another blood pressure pill, and predisone which I hate! Luckily if all goes well two of the pills is only temporary.
So why am I still up and yes I am so very tired also took sleeping pill. Well these medicines for breathing is playing on me. They are making me hyper and agitated. Can't relax for nothing enough to sleep. Not much reason to sleep anyways with having to be up every two hours. Eric is great there on setting clock every two hours, sorting medicines so I don't mix them up. I worry about him going to work though with not much sleep. Thankfully grandma and grandpa took James they are great about that.
Why the apology well sorry for scaring everyone. However, sorry my concentration, memory, and comprehension isn't there. If I don't comment on your posts or its off the wall comment this is why. Please forgive me I am deeply sorry. Thank You for the ones I have on facebook that knew what was going on and has prayed, called and messaged. Sorry for not talking if I didn't and Eric wants me to tell you all he wasn't being rude me talking wasn't real possible at time. He didn't mean to sound rude if he did, he was little scared as well. We appreciate you all is great having such great friends.
