Canada vacation & seizure


Recommended Posts

Had a wonderful PEI vacation;of course I had to check "oot" their 911 system (iit was excellent). Woke up to chest pain and had to take 2 nitros;next thing I knew, hubby was calling for an ambulance.

Drat! They think it was related to my bp, which is normally low but had dropped to 60/30. Ended up having a mild seizure.

Thought I was home free just last month when the PET showed all clear but we found out yesterday the PET had not included the head...back to the drawing borad;MRI will be scheduled.

BTW-I'd decided, for the first time, to get medical insurance and it's a good thing I did.

Neither Medicare nor the supplemental insurance cover Canada emergencies/hospitalizations and the same is often true for Canadians visiting here. Just a heads up.
