I spent a challenging day in the hospital yesterday, being treated by the most incredibly kind and compassionate Health Caregivers… the EMTs, nurses and doctor were wonderful.
What started out looking like a cardiac even has turned out to be (after more than 8 hours of testing and examination) to be Long Covid.
This explains so much about why I have been feeling so awful for the last 5 months…. I thought that my slowness in recovering from Covid was because of the grief I was suffering over the death of my beloved son in law, and other illnesses in the family.
That might have had an impact, but now that I have had Long Covid explained to me and the fact that I am ticking all the boxes and then some, makes sense.
Please, friends and family, if you are feeling ill- get help! I am now being entered into a Long Covid program with lots of dr apts and hopefully a happy and successful outcome that will leave me feeling like me again.
I wish I had taken more Comfort Bears with me, but I only took one, and gave it to the lovely woman who cared for me in the ambulance (her partner was kind, too, but was more in an admin role than caregiving)…. and she loved it
. Once I am feeling more energetic, I am going to make sure that I send a whole bunch of Comfort Bears to the Emergency Ward!
And, wow, am I ever lucky that one of my close friends is an Emerg Nurse, who took care of me before the ambulance came and who talked with the intake folks. Bless her heart!
I am also soooooo grateful to my darling husband and precious daughter who were there with me through it all and to our sweet son and daughter in law who cared for our puppies while the whole long thing was going on.
So…. please take care of yourselves!
I am embarking on some radical self care, so slowing down on all kinds of things. Hugs all round!
