Well got to spend yesterday and all evening at hospital after falling on spilled pop that was not clearly cleaned up enough since they had 5 signs all the walkways. So here I come to get my food with my brother and even walk carefuly stilled bit the floor. Of course the store was full of ppl simce it was a sarurday so had ppl trying to get me and pulling on the side were I had broken ribs and finally got up filled out an accident report and thought I was alright for the min just hurting when I hit my right side on the floor. We got our food and by the time I got it home(just like 10 min) I was feeling very sick. Left the food even though I had not eated anything and stayed in my moms bathroom spilling what there was left in me till my mom came in and with my brother got me laying down and saying I now was hurting more.
I guess I slept about 30 min and was up in the bathroom again and talk crazy stuff like calling my brother by Dads name and this went on long enough to have my mom worried and wanting to call the paramedics. I kept telling NO NO NO I didnt want to go till finally they did call them and again while a dont remember all the sudden I hear the sirens and started crying. I guess they eventually convinced me to go with them,got a drip line and all the sticky things so they could see how my heart was doing and I remember pits and pieces of the ambulance ride and being admitted as a possible stroke? then stared all the tests and imaging with going in and out of sleeping until finally Jay was there and it was after 9pm and trying to get me stay overnite for observation. I adimantly refused to stay as I felt nearly normal(for me) so they let me go pee on a bedside comode and ended keeping me a while longer since I had got up too fast an pulled my IV line almost out and was bleeding all over the floor and me. They finally got the bleeding under control with me taking bood thinners. I camr home and Jayson got me fed and out me to bed and stilling saying I didnt know why that happened to me and they thought was just dehydrated and maybe took much of my medicine.
I got up this morning and hurt bad on my right side(the side that hit the floor) and they was a bruise on my shoulder and the right side of my face! so I had hit that side when I fell so everything last night made sence last night with the vomiting and talking wierd and falling to sleep all night when I was there. I called the hospital and told them what had happened when I hit my head and they said they couldnt add that to what they had down in thier report unless I went back there and was seen in the ER for it. Well I had enough of them and so left it but I still have a hospital vist to show for what happened with me later night to give to Mc'Ds when they asked about it or I tell them. Man what an ordeal. Today I am laying low and resting I am so bruised on that right side and to go with my broken ribs from last week wow! all I know I dont want to go through that again. I was so frightened and scared thinking I had a stroke since didnt know I had hit my head in the fall. And what a lousy thing to happen since the store worker had mopped up without drying the floor with all those ppl having to walking on it it was a disaster waiting to happen and lucky it just happened to be me!!! So I am sore but OK and just wanted to let you know.
Hugs to all,
