Home from hospital

Thursday, July 30, 2009

Thank you for all the prayers and good wishes. I spent two days in the hospital after having a seizure (new experience!). I had every test possible and three specialists working hard to find out WHY. There was nothing in the brain scan or eeg or indicate a problem and my heart tests were fine. They think it was caused by an imbalance of all these nutrients we track on SP. I have a problem with low sodium and also have high blood pressure, normally controlled by meds. I feel like a hamster on a wheel trying to keep the sodium high enough without going so high my BP spikes. I had not eaten for six hours when I had the episode and my new orders are to eat a little something every three hours. I do feel a bit weak from the inactivity, tests and low food intake, so will spend the day playing on my computer.

Thank you all and thank you, God.

Jean

    Hi Jean, I saw that you were in the hospital through Grandmas are special, I am so sorry to hear that you were not feeling well, and very happy that God saw fit to make you feel better quickly. I do know that the companionship of Sparks People is very important for motivation and support and thought it was wonderful that you in your time of sickness and your daughter in her time of worry thought to let us know what was going on. I will make sure if anything happens to me (God Forbid), my kids will do that too. emoticon

    Jean I can't think of anyone I could miss more than you! Maybe as much but never more. You are such a wonderful presence on our shared teams and I am so glad that you are feeling better. You have to take care of yourself now, girl! Rest and take care of yourself first and then come play with us all again! Don't scare us all like that! And especially your daughter. You are precious and I am so glad all our prayers were answered and you are on the road to recovery!
    God Bless you , Jean!

    Hi Jean, glad you are back home. It is so hard sometimes to eat the right amount of everything, but if that will solve the problem, I guess you are in the right place!

    Your'e in my prayers. My DH suffered from seizures for awhile too, but eventually they went away and he got off medication. It is a really tough problem.
