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.
