AMBULANCE and ER for Mother's Day

Monday, May 14, 2012


Called my son (college) to come home as I was very sick (bathroom) he called
the Ambulance on his way. Since they got here before they did - the techs were
trying to break in to check on me. I was finally able to leave the bathroom to
open the door...As they were rolling me down the sidewalk in the stretcher
my worried son arrived.

I was hooked up to EKG monitor / given nausea med / pain med / oxygen etc...

At the ER other test were taken - blood / EKG / CT / urine etc...

I was released around 3 am - not really knowing what had caused all of this.

It could have been my diverticulitis / lactose / food poison ????

Thought it was over but as soon as I ate a little bit this evening - back to the bathroom.

My son and I slept most of the day and I didn't get my prescription filled or purchase
Gatorade... guess I will need to ask a neighbor in the morning if I can't drive yet. Very light
headed and weak.

Sorry I'm venting out loud here.

As most of you know I have been trying very hard not to get sick or miss work - guess
my body could not take it any more and gave up. I will be absent to work on Monday
for sure.

Thank you for reading and listening to me vent out loud!
Pray for me? Thanks!

    Marcy I am so sorry. That wasn't a very good mother's day. Be sure and get enough water and Gatorade so you don't dehydrate. I am hoping you get well soon. Don't push it though and take the time off you need my dear friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I had seen your comment before you wrote the blog. My heart goes out to you, I hope they can determine exactly what is causing you to be sick.
Take care, rest and know that some times you can't work,
