Sunday morning I blacked out and hit my head on the tub! I went to the hospital where they did another MRI (even though I just did one last month). There is a pretty good-sized knot on the back of my head and of course it was pounding. The hardest part was trying to lay flat in the machine. They had to pull me out several times during the MRI scan just because I was so nauseated. My OB doctor wasn’t there or on-call. So I saw another doctor. I had the neurologist and cardiologist in to see me within an hour of arriving. I’m on some new medication and I have more follow-up visits this week.
I figured this was it – I would be here in the hospital for good now. I guess since it wasn’t my OB doctor – they didn’t really think a lot about it. I was discharged this morning with no effort to even ask me to stay. I’m very sore and still very overwhelmed – but I can’t believe they let me out before Easter. I keep thinking if I can just get through Easter at home with the kids – then I don’t care what they do to me. Today I didn’t even have to state my case.
I can’t say that I feel much better than the last time I blogged – but I am lucky that I wasn’t more seriously injured. My list of things I’m allowed to do on my own keeps getting smaller and smaller. I already have to have someone walk me to the bathroom – to the couch – up the steps of my house – to my bed – to the porch to sit and watch the kids play- etc. I guess now I’ll have to shower with them too!! LOL!
