I am out of the hospital and back on my feet (at least some of the time). I am taking it easy and getting lots of rest. My chest feels fine and that actually is part of the tricky business of a heart condition. If you have say and injury to your arm you can see it and realize it takes time to heal. If the injury though is on the inside you can’t see it and can be fooled into thinking possibly you are better off than you actually are. That is a fact I still struggle with.
I have taken my morning medications which include the diuretic pills (pee pill). So for the next few hours any thought of a nap is pointless so I am just relaxing here in front of the computer.
The doctors, nurses, support staff, everyone at unit 6 on the 5th floor of Seven Oaks Hospital are wonderful. I really can’t say enough good things about them all, Earth Angels everyone. They got me through this whole thing some times I am sure it seemed inspite of myself. I thank each and every one of them so very much. How can you really thank someone to whom you owe your life?? Any suggestions here would be appreciated. Everyday that I was able I wrote them little “poems” and left them anonymously at the nursing station. I am not sure how many saw them or cared but it if nothing else mad me feel good, trying to brighten their days. Wait, I call them poems, that would mean I consider myself to be a poet, that would in fact be giving myself way to much credit. OK, don’t laugh but here would be an example of one such “poem”.
“Nurses are sent to us from above,
A reminder to each of us of God’s great love,
He placed them here on earth, indeed
To whom we can turn in our greatest need”
OK, go ahead you can laugh. I have never claimed to be a writer or do I claim to be a poet.
I think I only pushed my call button once. I know how busy the nurses are and tried to be as self sufficient as possible.
Many times I have written of how there are always 2 ways to look at everything or 2 sides to every coin. Everything depends on the direction from which you are looking at it. HOW DID THE NURSES VIEW ME AS A PATIENT? Well obviously as a model patient!!! lol.
Next, I will write about how the coin may have been view if looking at it from the other side. YIKES
