    Hi guys sorry i've not been around for a few days but i've been having a lot of chest pains and ended up in hospital today having tests and scans for a suspected blood clot.

    I saw the practice nurse this morning and she sent me straight over to the Medical Assessment Unit who were waiting for me.
    I was struggling to breathe as the pain under my ribs was so painful.My blood pressure was quite low and they took my other obs as soon as i got there.
    I had a chest X ray,an ECG (with a rather nice Naval Doctor),blood tests then had to wait until 3pm for a scan.
    They couldn't find any signs of any blockage but i'm still in a lot of pain.
    They have put me on antibiotics in case i have an infection and given me more painkillers.

    It was a big shock and a very stressful and upsetting day as the kids had gone to school and i knew i wouldn't be back for them.
    All day i kept thinking 'carpe diem' as i had loads of time waiting and thinking.

    We are certainly going to making the most of our holiday in August ,today really made me think what might have been.

    They don't know what it is.
    They are treating it as infection but were very concerned as i am 6 weeks post op.
    I have anti inflamatories,painkillers and antibiotics and got to take it easy again.
    Could even be a pulled muscle-not that i've done anything to get one.

    I can't breathe in deeply as it really hurts and i am in agony if i sneeze,cough,burp or have hiccups.
    It's really scary as my breathing is really shallow and fast and it sounds like i'm out of breath all the time.

    Couldn't sleep last night as i couldn't get comfy so i'm going to have a bath and an early night tonight.

    Be careful with yourself....a bath and an early night sounds like the perfect thing to do.

    After my car wouldn't start on Saturday da came up and got it running yeasterday so i took myslef off to the docs this morning as my parents ahve done everything for 6 weeks.
    I was so scared at the surgery when the nurse phoned the hospital and got my notes together.
    I went straight to Mum and Dads and Mum took me over and stayed with me all day.
    I managed to get a message to Robyn at school as i wasn't going to be home when they got there.
    Got back to Mum's at 5.30 to find that Dad had cleaned my car inside and out to take his mind off it all while i was in.Bless him.

    I really don't know how i would have managed in the last few weeks.
    Was very tearful when i got home and i'm feeling really tired.
