here we go again.....


 


Yesterday is when it hit me. I seemed to be fine. My best friend's daughter was here and I always enjoy listening to her talk. :o) My nurse didn't come, it was a different one. Basically my day was spent on just 'waiting' on things. <sigh> My physical therapist had already come....she comes so early, most of the time she has to wake me up to give me the deep tissue massage. And on Thursday's, they seem to be busier days for me. My nurse comes at 11:00, (suppose to anyway) and then I wate on my food delivery, which comes between 1:00 and 5:00. He cames from a long distance.
When the nurse was here, all of the sudden I felt as if I could pass out! I also got pretty weak and dizzy with a lot of pains! The pains were everywhere! I was just sitting on the couch next to her. My BP was up again and so was my pulse. I still don't know why it does that. But the nurse said that when your body is in a lot of pain....the BP is more then likely to raise! And then when you get up from a seated position, it can just drop way down on you. She asked me if this has happened to me before. I explained to her about all of the times I was having problems with my BP and getting dizzy. She said that thats what she thought my problem (at this time) was. So, I just sat there holding on to my walker! I wasn't feeling right and I told her this. She just told me to stay seated and when she's done with my medicine box, I could lay down and get some rest. Sounded good to me, but I still had to wait on the delivery guy. When I'm here alone, I don't turn any lights on, I like a dark room. Light really hurts my eyes. So....after she left, I thought I'd play some games on Pogo. The last thing I remember is it was starting to get dark out. Dh gets home at 5:30. Plus he picked up two scrips for me. I remember picking my head up from the key board!!! What?! I have no idea how long I was out! I just stayed seated in this chair until dh came home. He came in here and said that I was pail and that I need to go lay down. Yes...he was right. I looked in the mirror on my way to my bed and I was very pail with dark circles under my eyes. I really don't like to take a nap that late. But I jumped on it! He woke me up at 7:30 to eat. I was very weak and still in a lot of pain. I sat in my bed and ate and I was still not feeling right. He came in and said that I still didn't look very good. I told him that it all seem to start when the nurse was here. He wasn't happy about the fact that she didn't do anything for me. I wasn't thinking about that when she was here, I wasn't thinking at all, I couldn't. It all just hit me all at once! I went to bed and I woke up this morning at 9:30! Wow! Thats long for me! I slept for 12 and a half hours! I'm still not feeling right. I'm very weak and I'm still having a lot of pains. I did make a doctors apt. and they could get me in on Monday. I have no idea whats going on. Is it another relapes? After this, I'm going to try and lay back down. This is for the birds! lol Here we go again! I needed to log  this as well.

((((((Lisa))))))) That just isn't good to feel this way. If it gets any worse before monday please go to the ER. Stay in bed as much as possible and get some rest. I'm glad you had a good sleep, you needed it.
Love,
Cindy

Lisa if you don't start feeling better dear, go to the ER, you could be relapsing and hopefully they could help you dear.  Just take it easy, stay off your feet until you feel better or have someone there with you.  Take care. Arlene (AJ)

Lisa, I am so worried about you. I hope you rest and if it become's any worse you seek additional help a.s.a.p.! You know your body more then the doctor's and know when something is not right. Don't scond guess your instincts.

You are in my thoughts and prayer's.
