Geri Posted February 26, 2010 Share Posted February 26, 2010 I haven't been around for a while as I've been back in hospital for a few weeks. Turns out that the first go round didn't take enough fluid so back I went for more IV treatments. Two days after checking in I had a heart block and hit the floor. Richard had gone to get some lunch but fortunately a nurses aide was in my room and heard me hit the bathroom floor. Apparently the code team worked for more than an hour to get me back and keep me back. Fast forward a couple of days and a pace maker is in place and I was back to getting things together again. The scariest of all this is that the only reason I am now alive (again) is that this happened in the hospital. Apparently there is no warning for this type of "event" (cute expression the hospital staff kept using) and I think you're basically gone when you hit the floor. Anyway I fought every step of the way to survive and after a few very uncertain days in ICU . I was moved to a regular room and life went on. So, I have decided that I now have a new birthday - February 6th - the day I was brought back by a wonderful skilled team that didn't give up on me. I am now at home recuperating and very thankful for everyone who helped me through this nightmare. Nice to be back. Geri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
