Things I know- a hospital dash

From this week I know

I know waking up at 2.30am with crushing chest pains is horrifying
I know it took about  2 min before I decided I needed to wake The Miner
I know I had to order The Miner to call me an ambulance
I know on this request The Miner GOT OUT THE FREAKEN PHONEBOOK
I know I quickly told The Miner to call TRIPLE 000

I know I wanted to die just from the state of the house

I know just prior to the ambulance arriving The Miner decided to help me change into pants from my shorts
I know The Miner didnt think the undies I had on were appropriate.
I know The Miner went on a search for more 'sensible' undies for me to wear
I know if I hadnt of been in such pain the above events would have been more funny.

I know I could go on and on but
I know it gets a bit boring.

So
I know I wasnt having a heart attack
I know it was reflux related
I know I have to have more testing done.

Oh and I know when rushing out the door into the ambulance make sure you take an ipod for music and an ipad for entertainment.
As I know when the morphine kicks in it can get a bit boring. Though I did take a book



I know that coming home to a nice bed the next day was just wonderful

I know that Things I know is been held somewhere else this week.
So go over to Daisy, Roo and Two to see what others may know!

OMG, scary!! Last time i had ever been rushed to hospital was the first week we were on a new Army base, i had a crushing migraine & had to wake my handsome soldier to call an ambulance, then i explained he'd just missed 4 hours of vomiting & me in the shower?? Maybe i would have gotten a better reaction if i set off a rocket in the bedroom?? Anyway, the ambulance guys were great, i was coherant & then they promptly got lost in the maze of streets on the base, i didn't know where to go either, i was new, it was 3a.m., i was dying with an exploding head. I lay dying in the ED & the nurses kept coming up to ask me where i got my gorgeous pyjamas (Peter Alexander). I begged my husband not to visit me (with 4 children) & lay happily in a pain killing coma, ahhhh.
So much better than the first time - pregnant with my first born, i had deathly food poisoning & was taken to the horrible public hospital & well, violated to say the least. All ended well in the private hospital until i realised i hadn't brought a change of clothes & only grabbed my coin purse, not even my mobile phone, my husband was away & i had to leave the hospital in a hospital gown & told the cab driver i only had $15 (& no shoes). I was so lucky it was a $14.50 fare.
OMG, too scary, glad you're well & came home to a neat & tidy home. I too would think, is the lounge room presentable, mid chest pain, love Posie

That would have been so scary for you - very glad it was not a heart attack and I hope further testing helps you out. Take care! Kirsty @ My Home Truths

I am glad you are feeling better! That would have been frightening. And I too would have been worried about the state of my house and "sensible" undies, lol!
