The title of this post describes the events that occurred in my life this past Thursday night.
After the Alex left for work Thursday night, I finished watching my show and decided it was time to head to my desk and get some work done. About 10 minutes after sitting down at my desk, my stomach began to hurt in a very, very bad way. I thought I just needed to use the bathroom, so I excused myself from a conversation on Gmail Chat with @Blm03 and off I went.
After that….things get a little blurry.
I went to the bathroom.
I got very warm and dizzy.
The right side of my face started to stuff up.
Then it got hard to breathe.
Then my entire right side kind of went limp.
It’s really hard to describe.
All of this happened while I was sitting on the toilet.
I know….such a beautiful picture to paint.
Next thing I know I smacked my head on the wall/window frame because I blacked out.
I was beyond dizzy and couldn’t focus my vision.
It was pretty damn scary.
I had Zack call my dad and have my dad call 911 and get over to my house.
I knew something wasn’t right.
From there, I went to a stretcher into an ambulance. (Can’t wait to get that bill!)
I was having such a hard time breathing that I needed oxygen and my blood pressure was really low.
Once I got to the hospital I went through a series of tests and bloodwork.
It was soooo much fun.
I got an IV to administer fluids and some meds.
About 4 hours later, I finally got to leave.
Diagnosis….intestinal bleed and bowel infection.
I would not wish this on anyone.
Little did I know that I had been passing blood in my stools (EWWWW!!!!)
This is what led to my blood pressure dropping…or so I’ve been told.
So, now I sit at home taking some lovely antibiotics to fight the infection.
I am happy to report that I am starting to feel A LOT better!!!
Thanks to everyone who checked in with me on Facebook and Twitter after Zack reported his mom was in the hospital.
