Well...I didn't go to school today. Mom was going to take me, but when we were watching the weather we thought that it looked pretty nasty out there and I said that the first day of school you never really do much. So, we went back to bed. Actually this worked out well since we have to stay up late tonight for my eeg tomorrow. I only get 4-5 hours of sleep. Mom and I are going to watch The Lake House and hopefully some of The Family Stone. I will do my best to let you know what we thought of them. Well..I guess that is it. Have a great week!
So - I am sure that most of you have already heard the update from the doctor, but just in case..
He had all the info from the e.r and didn't think that it was a seizure, but because of the family history (Thank you Grandma!) I have to have it checked out. I have an eeg next Tuesday (which as Andy knows means only 4-5 hours of sleep the night before, and I have to go with nothing done to my hair but it washed!) I also have an appointment with a seizure specialist but, being a specialist I cannot get in to see her until Feb. 8. This also means that I have to be an inconvienance to people until then because I still cannot drive! But I would rather have it checked out and confirmed one way or the other than go through life never knowing what it was and whether I was going to have another one again. Thank you for all your prayers and thoughts! I love you all!!
I was just complaining to mom yesterday on the way to work about how I never had anything to blog because I don't do anything (work, school and back home!) Well....I got my wish!
Mom and I were getting craft supplies for our Wednesday night class and I remember feeling a little dizzy so I ate a couple mentoes to bring my sugar up. The next thing I remember is waking up in an ambulance nto knowing how I got there! Apparently I had collapsed at Hobby Lobby (luckily mom had caught me!) I went to Saint Mary's hospital and was helped by many many nice people. They thought that maybe I had had a seizure, but I think that my sugar had just dropped too quickly. I was 130 at about 2:30 and after I collapsed mom said I was at about 75, this was probably about 4:00 or so. That is quite a drop in a little less that two hours! I am hoping to never do that again! I will never complain that I have a boring life again, you never know what will happen!
I am a Child of God, sister, daughter, and friend. I have a great family: Mom, Dad, brother, sister and brother-in-law, and an amazing and adorable niece!. I also have a cat, Oliver, who gets himself into a lot of trouble, but who is loved a lot! I work at a nursing home in the kitchen and housekeeping, which I love.
