My words here might be few and far between for a while. I had another trip to hospital at 1.30 a.m. on Wednesday, after waking at 1 a.m. knowing something was amiss, and chest pain began. Then the shaking. not an earthquake for sure. Woke Hugh, rang the ambulance, ,they must think I like those trips. My blood pressure was so high, yet the ambulance paramedic wanted me to try and tell her what was wrong, when I could hardly breathe. Then she wanted me to walk out to the green and yellow truck!!! I struggled, with her on one side and Hugh the other, I tried so hard, with suggestions “ Keep your eyes open, Keep Walking !!!” Over and over. Guess she might have been a bit scared I would collapse. Then I think I almost yelled, well it might be called a snappy retort… “ I’m Trying”!!! Truly, it was such a long way, or so it seemed.
Whanganui Hospital E.D. has the best staff, from the cleaning lady who sweeps around the bed so quietly, or leaves it until the curtain is open, the nurses, 3 were waiting when I arrived, to all the Doctors from bottom to top. My medication has been changed, once again, and the new tablets lower my B.P. to the very bottom of the scale. I now have a referral to a cardiologist, but am classed as semi-urgent!!! So am off to my G.P. next week, hope another letter might hurry things along.
Sewing is taking a break, as is quilting, baking, and housework. Perhaps in the reverse order might have been a better way to list them.
I promise, I am still reading all your news, admiring the photos, of sunshine, cats, dogs, waterfalls, lakes and the snow.Love that snow, wherever it is.And even if I have not left a comment, I will have read every word.
Here is a collection of photos from 2014.
Quotation of the day, a Chinese Proverb,
The miracle is not to fly in the air,
or to walk on the water,
but to walk on the earth.
