A Dramatic Medical Day

Posted Feb 08 2009 12:00am

I had an appointment with my naturopath at 11 am and, as I recall, that visit went well. Later in the afternoon, I met with my gastroenterologist who advised another stretching of my esophagus. I chose to wait a bit. I have enough medical bills to pay right now and while food continues to get stuck when I swallow, it’s happening less frequently and less dramatically.

From there, I went home….and at around six o’clock I went into the kitchen to fix dinner. That’s the last thing that I remember. I had a seizure last night, the second in my the life (the first occured four years ago in Las Vegas and no cause was ever deternined.). We don’t know how long I laid on the kitchen floor, my face bruised and bleeding. Eventually I managed to get myself up and go out to the home office to find Larry. The first thing that I remember was lying in bed with Larry cleaning up my face. We went to the emergency room last night and the doctor performed an EKG and a CT scan but the tests were inconclusive. It was a couple of hours before I could remember what day it was, names of family, names of dogs. I went home around 2:30 this morning and I’m feeling relatively well this morning. My left eye is bruised, my lower lip is swollen and I’m sore in places on my left side. I have just a very mild headache.
