Had a bit of an episode last weekend where I became dizzy and was leaning on a big chair while the dizziness passed, then thought maybe I should slide down and sit on the floor, tried that but actually fell down pulling the chair with me. Lying there still dizzy taking stock of how I feel, breathing ok, hands and feet o.k. but knees pulled back at tight angle when I fall so pain there. Hubby and daughter arrived home with me stretched out on the floor, asked daughter to phone for an ambulance, spent three nights in hospital hooked up to a heart monitor, possible some heart involvement, lots of blood work taken, pills given, didn't feel too bad, really wanted to go home but cardiologist wanted me to stay for three nights. Was discharged on Monday and a follow up for this coming Thursday with the Hospital Heart Clinic, meanwhile I feel fine and am taking all the pills they prescribed. A bit of trouble walking now as legs are painful but nothing too bad.
Had the chair lift company in yesterday assessing the one flight of stairs for a chair lift, it will be installed next week. It will be good for both of us, Dave is very slow on the stairs and I hurt both my knees when I fell so it will be a help. Our son feels we should be in a house with the one main level but the idea of having to move house is too horrendous to contemplate, 60 odd years of 'stuff' and furnishings to move would be more than we could handle but the chair lift will certainly help. Will see how that works out. That's my sad tale for this week.
