A stroke scare (11/9-11/13 post)

Well Monday hit like a freight train. Just such a tired day that everything seemed bigger than it is. I am in the process of playing catch-up from last week’s covering for the ousted sales guy an training A. on things. Boss came in for a half day but had to leave early to get home and get his leg up. He is still in the full throes of cellulitis. C.’s mom is in the hospital currently with the same thing and pneumonia on top of it. I watched the poor woman get carted off in an ambulance a few nights ago. I was a bit freaked out, she is an awesome sweet lady.

Tuesday night my heart palpitations that I’d been experiencing the past week became almost constant. I felt my blood pressure high since the day before and went into the clinic after work. My BP was 220/130. Nurse freaked out, gave me a 100mg metoprolol to take right away. Ran for the doctor, he came back checking me fir signs of stroke and was very straight with me. I needed to be watched closely for stroke. They wanted me to go to the e.r. if *anything* changed. Put me on 100mg/day of metoprolol. I’m supposed to go back in saturday for a BP check but may end up there today if things worsen. I am honestly scared.

So what’s next for me, I don’t know. Hopefully my health can get stabilized. I *need* help around the house bcs right now I can’t do it all. There is nobody though. Best I can do is try to hire a housekeeper for once a week. I need someone there in case something happens. C is next door but idk how accessible he really is. I just need somebody :/
