Well, now my wife knows about my blog. It's hard when you're suddenly a patient in a hospital, as I find myself, to gain access to a computer. I have temporarily gained access to a medication laptop which is now attached to the wall on a telescoping arm.
I should correct a misimpression, my wife has akways known I have a blog, today she got to read a part of it when the nurse came in and started the admitting process and Judy saw the blog, and Holmes on the screen and started reading.
I will tell you what happened. Like any other normal human being, I went to the bathroom to dispose of some unwanted bodily waste. What was unusual was the blood in the toilet bowl. The blood was just as unusual 20 minutes later. And twenty minutes after that. Bizarre was needing to lie down on the recliner to get my strength back. I had trouble seeing. I was very light headed.
Here is where training pays off. I called a neighbor first to take me to the hospital. It was clean I shouldn't try driving. No one home at the neighbors. Get the medic alert bracelet on. Print out the medical history. Get the insurance card. Call 911, Call the wife's cell so she will know what is happening. Pray.
I am wireless wired for everything. I am in a room. Holmes is not doing well. I have shooed Judy out of the hospital to take care of Holmes. I have had two units of saline and my Blood Pressure is up to 100 over 65. I was 70 over 50 when I came in. They don't want to feed me or give me anything by mouth. No water, no ice chips. Nothing.
All things being equal, this is a week I'd just as soon forget. But, I am in maroon sweat pants and an orange shirt! I hope Mist would approve, I am still wearing my slippers. I was light headed you see.....
