Dodged Another One

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.

Scary as hell ain't it @UncleJoe ? Holy crap on the cops and the door. Wow; that was a long time for Becky to have found out.

Not only that but with all the small airplane crashes and helicopter ones, you can only imagine what I was thinking on the 20 minute flight @Corbin5 .

@nanette64 I would have been very frightened too. I have never taken a ride on a helicopter.

@Corbin5 I was too scared to look out the window. AND when we approached the hospital, the skies were black. No sooner did we get inside that the sh*t hit the fan outside.

Glad that you dodged that one too. I dodged a few myself. Not pleasant to go through all this.

Wow. Did they say what caused it, or how you can prevent it from happening again?
