Christmas 2013, what did you do on your break?
Christmas 2013, me? In critical care. Yes. I waited how long to spend time with my daughter and grandkids and I end up in the hospital.
Crazy. I had a migraine that started last Wednesday and by Sunday had me in urgent care. They sent me home after a shot in the butt and some pain meds. That night was horrible so went to the doctor on Monday.
Well he didn’t think it was normal that I would have my first migraine ever at my age. The doctor sent me straight over to the ER for a MRI.
Christmas 2013 From ER to Critical Care
At first I thought the ER doctor was joking when he said I tore the artery that runs up through my neck. And I would be staying here for a few days and miss Christmas at home.
That was Monday. Still trying to figure out how I did this. It is usually the result of an accident. Not me. I just happened to tear my artery.
Things I’ve learned while here. Critical care patients get lots of attention. It is more serious than I ever thought. Don’t let a migraine go five days without medical attention. My grandson isn’t afraid of hospitals.
Hope your Christmas 2013 was wonderful! Miss y’all!
Lift a glass for me and let’s get 2014 off to a better start!
