In the still of the night...

So yesterday did not start out well, I suppose all of you knew that by the previous post. I didn't feel well, but what the hell else is new? I tried to get it together and went to work. When I got there, things were particularly f'ed up, and i went about getting it straightened out. The service department in particular. I was still feeling weak and dizzy, but i pushed on because that's what I do. The next thing I know, I am laying on the dirty garage floor, an EMT patting my hand and face, saying my name. I couldn't move my head....because I had a head/neck/back brace on because I had fallen on concrete, but i didn't know that at the time. I took a bumpy ride in an ambulance, and spent a few hours at the hospital. Other than royally hurting my back from the fall, most things checked out okay. No anemia, no heart attack, no stroke. My electro-lytes (sp?) were out of whack, no doubt from all the damned sweating I do recently from the miracle medication. My blood pressure dropped quite low, although it wasn't when the ambulance arrived. I suppose a combination of the two can cause dropping like a sack of potatoes.Embarrassed? Hell yea. Pissed off? You know it. I am such a freakin' drama queen. I am tired of this bullshit. I have more tests this morning, and a dr appointment. Yippee fuckin yea. Out.

yeah...do take care and if at all possible, don't drive the car urself!!! that IS frightening, but if it's not a stroke or anything serious...then that's a little reassuring...ya scaring us!

Our bodies continue to send out warnings till we change our ways or till the bitter end...

I had a hunch that something bad had happened. I'm so glad you're ok!!

"till we change our ways or till the bitter end..."

how uplifting it must be for jamie, or others with health problems. that have nothing to do with "our ways".

Glad you're okay. I've done the passing out gig before (from my low blood pressure) and it's scary as hell. Get those electrolytes in order (sports drinks or pedialyte are good for that)!

OMG!!! thank god it wasn't more serious; should I be getting worried about you??

Gina said...

You got knocked down...OH my gosh. I posted that hockey YOU TUBE and just now read that you passed out. I am so sorry to hear that. Please know that I had NO idea that happened to you. Looks like I am making light of your electrolyte imbalance and not feeeling well!

Will add you to my growing prayer chain. Poor thing. Feel better and don't forget the Gatorade!!
