Here I Sit...

I am in the first time the cardiology unit. I have a rapid heart beat and I need to get it slowed down. I have gone from being an incredibly modest person to getting tubes and things inserted in my arms and elsewhere daily. I am hooked up to a pole that gets to come with me everywhere I go...which is mostly to the bathroom. I am supposed to tell people when I move but I haven't done that yet. I just drag my rack and sneak into the bathroom. I am still reading tons, the nurses here are awesome and I don't have to really do anything but get watch TV...I get awaked every three hours to get poked and prodded and I get to wear one of those cool oxygen things like they wear on Law And Order...I don't know how much longer my humor will last so I am just going with my flow. I pretty much cry every day and I can't believe how much my life has changed. I have not seen, held, smelled or kissed my girls since Saturday at noon. If it wasn't for Den's strength I don't know what I would do...oh...and my hospital nightie sucks big time!

So...I am still visiting and commenting on blogs and posting on my own...trying to stay as normal as I can...

Reading this...

Up next...

Thinking of you!





  1. And this is on to of your other issue? What is going on with you? Maybe the stress of the other is causing this?? Don't worry. Try to rest. They will get it all figured out.

  2. I hope they figure out what's going on soon and you can get back to your girls.

  3. I'm so sorry you're having to go through this but I'm glad they found it so they can make it right. Hopefully they'll figure things out soon so you can get home to Den and the girls.

  4. So sorry it's been rough for you. Sending you a hug.

  5. Patty,
    Hang in there kid. Have Dennis get a nice wheel chair and cruise the halls. Sneak you out for some fresh air. Check out the clouds. You will be well and home again soon.
    Candice and I will be thinking of you and sending positive vibes your way.
    Steve & Candice

  6. Hang in there and keep hanging onto Den. Sending hugs.

  7. Oh, yes, let's get on to normalcy....soon! I'm glad you're getting to read and blog a bit.

    I hate hospital gowns with a passion! lol

  8. Take care of yourself, try not to stress and I hope you recover soon! I've been in a hospital more times than I would like to remember, and it always sucks, to be honest. I hope your medical issues are resolved asap.

  9. So, what happened? Is it medication induced, like blood pressure or diuretics? Take care. Prayers.

  10. Oh, Patty. I'm sending good wishes and positive thoughts. I hope you can go home soon. Sending warm hugs too.
