Angels Love Chocolates too...
Yesterday morning i was sitting quite happily on tha loo, minding my own business, when suddenly an icy coldness crept from my toes to my chest and then my head went all dizzy... Wasting no time i finished up and quickly got to the couch... Unconsciousness looming i started to panic and hyperventilate (again)... This time with no hesitation i asked my husband to call for an ambulance... Last trip in an ambulance the Paramedics said never to hesitate to call and as there is a depot just around the corner the call was made... My mum spoke with them... She had stayed the night before as i had noticed blood in my urine and so she was organised to take me to the doctors about it... Too late! So off i went for another Ambulance trip! By this time i was starting to feel fine and secretly wondering if i could play hooky... But no (Sighhh) once there, the tests began... Bloods were taken and then i was hooked up and given fluids (As i was deemed a little dehydrated)... Then my Oncologist was called and a CT scan was set up (Aaaarrrggghhh! And you KNOW how i feel about THEM!!!) But the staff/nurses/technicians were so incredibly kind and patient and my Doc so gentle and thorough that what could i do but comply (Lol!)
So now after a full day spent in hospital yesterday, i await test results and doc appointments... One little scary thought occurred when during my CT a tech asked me if i had ever had any kidney surgery? No i sighed but i have noticed blood in my urine (Damit!) Although the tests in hospital all showed no bloody urine but some slight sign of infection, so fingers crossed i whispered to myself UNTIL... The very kind nurse said "Good Luck" as they wheeled me back to ED (Emergency Department)...
Last time i heard that from a Radiology Dept i was diagnosed with breast cancer (Do you think i should tell them one day that those words strike fear into hearts of cancer patients?)
