Back in hospital again

Hi, all hooked up to monitors in ED again waiting to be sent to a ward. My cardiologist will be in to see me in the morning. Not feeling too bad now but this afternoon I couldn’t get warm, despite layers of clothes and blankets and then my blood pressure started going through the roof and I had a headache and pains in my back and chest. We rang my Cardiologist/EP who said to head to the hospital. I think it may be associated with a change in meds on Friday but ED doctor doesn’t think so and it could be an unrelated virus. Will see what my doctor says in the morning.

Oh dear that's not good.

Hope they manage to sort you out soon and that it is "only" a virus.

Thanks. No news yet. Still waiting for my specialist. I think my issues are drug related. I have a nice room with a view of the hills (and train station, freeway and construction site). I'm feeling very relaxed and have just about read a whole book. My lunch, morning and afternoon teas were delicious too. 😀

its good to hear from you, and sounding so chirpy too 😊.

Medications have a lot to answer for ... had a bad experience with ace inhibitors a few months back when my potassium levels started getting dangerously high.

I do hope they can sort yours out quickly.

I'm in the middle of a book which is coincidentally set partly around Perth.

Keep smiling 😊

Mine is about the heart, health and life. Written by a young female Perth cardiothoracic surgeon.

That sounds interesting. Mine's a novel about children from catholic-run orphanages in the UK being sent to Australian orphanages in the early 50s. I'm enjoying the descriptions of the area but it's shocking and sad at times.
