Spent a few hours in the ER today...
Tue, 06-07-2011 - 7:55pm

Had me a good scare. I woke up feeling fine, ate breakfast and watched a little bit of tv. I got up to go take a shower and stuff and got super light headed. I literally couldn't stand for more than 30 seconds or so without nearly passing out. I hadn't taken my high blood pressure meds yet so I took my blood pressure to see what it was and it was 50/41. I made dh take his to see if the cuff was messing up and his was normal, so we tried to take mine again, got an error reading twice, then about 10 mintues later it was 80/60 and I could feel my heart beating super fast in my chest, my head, my arms, all over really. Called my OB and he sent me to the ER.

Oh my! I'm glad you're OK!!! That must've been super scary. I'm glad you got to see your little bean...& she was feeling playful. I'm sorry Paul has to have surgery. I hope it's nothing too serious. He'll be in my thoughts for his consult next week.

Thank you to Sara for the siggy!

How scary. I'm glad they told you what it was. I have had the feeling of being dizzy a couple times and never attributed it to dehydration, but I will be drinking much fluids when I feel like that again.

Take care of yourself...
