Hello everyone, been a while since I blogged, things have been the same for me ... one thing going wrong after another, which I will tell you about later right now I am grateful to be at home now, after slipping off my walker in my front yard on Tuesday full SLAMMO my tush met concrete sidewalk, while pulling weeds waiting for the bus. I went to my Cardiologist to go over the stress and Lexicon tests. The stress/Lexicon tests were FABULOUS! As long as I take all of my medications the way the doctors tell me I am holding my own or getting...dare I say getting better!
THEN while waiting for the bus to go home a lady in the waiting room stated she was waiting also. Well the bus pulled in and I turned to her and said this bus has both logos on it! So I went ahead and asked the driver, nope only me so I turned to tell her and she was right in the door of the doctor offices. I repeated what the driver told me and the next thing I remember is 6 Cardiologists standing over me and the entire waiting room as a cheering section!!
The doctors were sweet trying to keep the sun out of my eyes while all debating what to do. that is when their Nurse came out and said "Do not touch her the ambulance is on the way, I called 911. This is when I realized I hit the cement full body SLAM on on my back. I could not move my arms, legs, head nor talk! I know I could see because I peeked out at the blazing sun.
Any way short story long I spent a day and a half in St. Mary's Hospital had CT scans of my nugget and neck, x-rays of my full body and the staff told me I miraculously broke nothing! I told them with all this fat I am sure I bounced! One doctor said " Honey don't even think like that" (he would not fit in my pocket to take home). My ponytail that I really did not like...they said saved me from not only a concussion but a fractured skull! I guess I traumatized my bus driver and the lady in the door waiting for her bus!!!
I thank my Great friend Pat for coming to my side even though she could barely see through her dilated eyes, and my brother for coming all the way from Trenton then waited at the wrong hospital for an hour and a half (they told him Garden City, but the EMS said too much trauma my blood pressure in both arms was 80/60 and 76/59).
So off to St. Mary's any way he was a bit rattled and called every hospital he could thing of and found me, and stayed until my doctor (per phone calls from the ER said to admit me). She came this morning and released me. She allowed one good shot of Morphine and I slept all day. When I told her I would see her on July 31st and I had a ride NO BUS she smiled from ear to ear and thanked God for my friend (Pat Clancy). Same ol' same ol'...
