Yep!! An unexpected trip to the Hospital is never fun. One that lasts until Tuesday night is even more "unfun"!
I had been feeling out of sorts for the last few days. Nausea, light headed, dizzy, and I was patiently waiting for the stomach bug to hit after so many friends had caught it. Saturday morning I was miserable. I felt if I didn't stay still I was going to pass out or heave, or both. My husband brought me to the emergency room and while I was there discussing the possibility of vertigo, they had been monitoring my heart. My heart had an unusual beat. Since it seemed to happen randomly, and they could not pinpoint why, they admitted me to monitor my heart. They were concerned that my heart may have caused the symptoms I was having. After every test in the book, they felt confident that my heart was not the issue and final released me last night.
Needless to say, I was ecstatic to be home. All I wanted was a hug from my little one, a kiss from my hubby, and a nice hot shower.
My boss was nice enough to let me have the rest of the week off. And it is sooooo appreciated.
I am going to relax, make a follow up visit to my primary care doc and see if I can get to the bottom of the nausea and lightheadedness.
One positive note out of this whole mess. It sure put Christmas into perspective. I am going to reduce some of my "to-do" lists and really enjoy the next few weeks of festivities. Join me! This time of the year is always hectic, but I am going to only do "what I have to" and leave the rest for another day. Now is the time to enjoy the wonders of Christmas.
I will share my adventures as they happen.
