Thought I'd drop in before I go lay down again ...
I did pretty good. Sugar started dropping about
8:00 this morning, so husband suggested we go early. Got there and legs were rubbery, pretty shaky all over. Told them about
it, so they got me in a room pretty quickly. Everything went along just about
how Marsky described it, only my veins wouldn't cooperate. She had to put hot packs on my hand, and then finally got one. The prick DOES hurt!
With all the questions over and signed ... the doctor introduced himself .. didn't stay long. I kept asking the nurse where the 'drug pusher' was. LOL
My heart started pounding then, they took a prick, blood sugar was 112. Started to get nervous, cause she was preparing all the 'tools'. UGH ... but then she positioned me and gave me the injection. I got pretty oozy, but was still awake and aware.
I said she'd better give me enough! LOL
She gave me a second injection, and then I don't remember much .. I DO remember ONE episode though! OUCH!
It's fuzzy now, but I felt PAIN really bad at one point, twice .. and all though my memory finds it hard to completely describe it, I KNOW it happened! I must have yelled out, I remember saying something LOUD .. and then I was OUT. So they must have given me more.
When I was in recovery, I was quite sick ... felt very weak, sick to stomach, just lousy. I sipped some cranberry juice she gave me .. and then some water. Didn't help too much ... felt like crap. Dizzy too.
Husband came in ... didn't help much, he's NOT good with this stuff. Nurse tried to joke with me, to help me feel better, didn't help much. Finally I asked if I could have my 'survival kit' I made up. It was a few pieces of cheddar cheese and a few roasted almonds. I ate 2 very small bites of cheese and about
3 almonds .. and knew that wasn't gonna work.
So she asked me if I can get dressed .. well .. uhmmm NO .. but I guess I have to. So I'm really dizzy, and weak .. but manage to get my jeans on. Wheelchair comes, and out we go. I don't remember the ride home much, which is best, since husband drives like a maniac.
Got home, drank juice ... laid down, cat joined me .. GONE!
Wake up ... cat still there (bless her heart), husband online .. of course, call husband in, he says .. well, you look like you're gonna make it. I get up and have him go buy McDonalds. I eat 1/2 and I'm full. Have been drinking lots of water, sipping juice .. but not all that hungry. Strange, since I haven't eaten since 12:00 yesterday. And sugar has been good, strange.
Been on internet for awhle, husband gone ... so now I'm ready to lay down again.
Findings so far: One polyp that they removed and is being tested. Hemorrhoids. NO KIDDING, I knew that! LOL
So there you have it! I'm home and alive.
Thank you all so much for being there for me.
