My very strange Wednesday
Posted by doggonedmysteries
Wednesday started like all my other Wednesdays of late with a slight modification. I got a call from a man interested in buying the tool chests I called G and she wasn’t ready to go over so I went over to the house alone. I sold the tool chests then I did some work over there and went home around 4:30.
I got home in time to feed the dogs at five. Then I cooked our dinner. After dinner, I went outside to work on the pond where we have a couple of plants trying to take over that I trimmed back. While working I began to feel not well. My chest burned my throat and jaw burned too. I sat down for a minute. The pain didn’t let up.
I went inside, grabbed two aspirins, which I took immediately, and then I sat in my lounge chair and told DH to call for an ambulance. Knowing me, and how I feel about hospitals, (hate them) he dialed 911 immediately. This was a little after seven.
The fire truck, its crew, and the ambulance with paramedics livened up our sleepy little neighborhood. During the ride in the ambulance, I was given four more aspirins and two nitros. Leads were applied to my body, IVs were started, and I was at the hospital in minutes.
They say I didn’t have the myocardial infarction until I was in the cardiac cath lab a mere twenty minutes after I had DH make the call for an ambulance. I now have one stent and they were surprised to find that my cholesterol levels weren’t all that bad.
Saturday they sent me home. I tire easily right now. Therefore, if I don’t post every day for a few weeks don’t worry, DH is being strict with how much time I can be online.
