A LATE Thankful Thursday from Mom Kim

First, we will hear a brief word from the Beaglebratz -

Thanx mom. 
The above pikchure wuz taken by our aunt sis when we were over there - we THOUGHT 
we wuz there tue just vizit with our 
fur cuzin Bailie'n
git in sum speshal playtime
 BUTT
we soon notised a couple thingz-

1 - MOM wuz NOT there
2 - WE BEAGLEBRATZ did NOT go home that nite!

Now don't git us wrong - Bailie iza great doggie tue play with'n we love stayin'with aunt sis -
FER A COUPLE HOURZ! 
NOT all nite an'NOT without OUR mom!
The Case of The Missin'Mom!

Ok - so we Beaglebratz will now turn this bak tue our mom an'she will fill u in on what happened.

Thank you Shiloh'n Diva Shasta - so now I will solve The Case of The Missing Mom - I'm su:re to Shiloh and Diva Shasta I was missing but I really wasn't to anyone else.

This past Tuesday morning I woke up and got ready for work - I did seem to be a little more tired than usual but I figured it was just due to getting over whatever bug kept me home from work the day before.  Besides the tiredness didn't seem much worse than what I usually feel getting up at 5:30am.  So at 7am on Tuesday (12/10) when my ride picked me up, I went on to work as usual.  It was a little after  9:30a when I got off the phone with my sis and then a couple of minutes before 10a when you could say I had my feet suddenly give way - I had stood up to take my usual break and get something to drink - all things my morning routine is made of only THIS morning was NOT routine.  I did start feeling a little strange but I thought getting away, going for a short walk, getting something to drink would all help the feeling go away - WRONG!  I never made it away from my desk - at least not until a couple of my coworkers and the ambulance EMTS helped me out to the hallway where I was helped on to a stretcher then taken to the waiting ambulance.  Of course all this seemed so unreal to me - from passing out and being almost completely unresponsive to being taken to the hospital ER by ambulance to being told by the heart doctor that they were admitting me overnight for observation - I mean come on people, that's something you see on TV or at the movies or you read about it happening to OTHERS.  Then when they told me that my tests came back normal except for 1 lab test that was only 2 points off - I thought ok, the doc would change his mind and let me go home to rest - NOT A CHANCE!

So there is not a whole lot more to this mystery. Yep - I was admitted but it was only for overnight - was discharged a little after 12:30 on Wednesday (12/11). I guess when the heart doctor saw my echocardiogram that had been done late Tuesday afternoon - after I was in a room - and the report said that there was no change from the previous report in 2010 (I have Aortic Valve Stenosis) then he decided I really didn't need to be there anymore - plus I know from my years working in medical records - insurance would not cover much more.  And I didn't really feel like I needed to be there as long as I was anyway.  Oh, since I wasn't really clear about what happened that led to this - I passed out - yes, my feet went out from under me - I collapsed on the floor beside my desk then my coworkers helped me stand then they moved me into a chair where they still could not get a clear response from me - total time was almost 5 minutes which is when the ambulance arrived.  Talk about F-R-E-A--K-Y!!! 
Feels kind of weird talking about some other medical problem instead of the problems with my eye.
I came home Wednesday afternoon and my sis brought the Beaglebratz home less than an hour later - I am sooooooo grateful to her for taking them in - I know it had to be weird to them too.
Just thank the good Lord above for bringing us all back together again, safely. 

Ok - we all need to get to bed - need some rest but still feeling so much better than Monday nite.  Oh by the way - speaking of my eye problem (now I'm in familiar territory) this past Monday when I felt so bad and was off work, aalso saw my eye doc -the same one who had only days before had said he didn't expect much improvement in that epithelial defect (skin tear) on my cornea - wll he DID see a BIG improvement in less than ONE week - that defect has shrunk to less than half the size it was.  YEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
Ok - bedtime now

KB Bear said...

I am so glad that you're okay. I had that happen once, just after a bug (like you). It taught me to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate so it wouldn't happen again.

I am thinking of you.

Your Christmas Card arrived today ~ Thank You. It is scary to suddenly find yourself not knowing what happened and at the mercy of other people taking care of you. Sounds like you were blessed with good friends at work and a knowing hospital staff.

Goodness! I can't imagine how scary that was. I am so glad it wasn't anything serious and you are home and feeling better now. That is great news about your epi defect too! I hope it continues to improve.
