Dodged Another One
May 29, 2020 11:25am CST
I've mentioned that I've escaped death on several occasions. Well I have a new one to add to the list. Wednesday morning at 10:40 am, I suddenly had a drop in BP, was sweating profusely and only saw black & grey. I barely got to the phone to call 911. When they got there they couldn't even get a BP or a pulse and said I looked grey, white and blue and I felt like ice. They carried me out in a sheet to the cart and into the ambulance. I was immediately care-flighted to Waco at the Baylor Scott & White Hospital into the Cardiac Unit. They did several tests and found fluid in the lungs and heart. They literally did blood draws, BP's, temps, IV's, etc; every hour on the hour for 24 straight hours. I was released yesterday at 3pm. My sister from Arlington brought me home and it's a miracle I'm still not dead considering her driving habits. I have to wear a brace on my right arm to make sure where they ran the catheter line to my heart that it doesn't start bleeding. So yuppers; dodged another one.

Now, cut that out! I've had similar moments so I know how you feel. One time the police had to break in my door because I lost consciousness right after dialing 911. Becky was at her mom's and didn't find out that I was in ICU until about 12 hours later.
