Last Weekend of August was worst ever!

Journal Entry: Sun Aug 31, 2014, 1:15 PM
Starting with Saturday, I spent no less than three days going to the ER for my middle daughter.  She woke at dawn throwing up then passing out on way back from bathroom.  That necessitated a trip by ambulance.  Now mind you, I wasn't feeling so wonderful either having acquired food poisoning just a few days before.  Now she and I are in ER room, me seeing if I was getting clear of the gut issue and my daughter, trying to find out what was wrong with her. 

Thinking it was a simple gastro bug, she was sent home after receiving two bags of fluids by IV.  I got a shot in butt to quiet my gut.  Next dawn, another trip to ER, this time with pains in chest and feeling really bad. Since my husband had to work, I had to take her in.  Fortunately I was feeling better though I tired easily.  More tests followed and more fluids before daughter was sent home again.  Third dawn and were off to ER again.  She's feeling worse and is scared because chest still hurts and now jaw and right arm involved.  This time the doctor on duty decided this was a heart issue and had her admitted.  Many tests later and it was determined she had Pericardities (infection of the heart sack).  Probably got it from the virus she had some three weeks before.  Were told she should be able to go home next day.  Next morning another cardiologist walks in and scares my daughter with fears she had had a heart attack and needed catherization to check her veins!!!

Neither my daughter and I liked this guy so I asked for a second opinion.  She was transferred to another hospital that could do further tests and saw a different cardiologist who confirmed the original diagnosis as being Pericarditis.  Another stay in hospital to be sure and we finally got her out by Wednesday which was my 42nd Wedding Anniversary.  Already too tired, especially after spending the night on a cot, that I just wasn't up to celebrating. 

Thankfully my daughter is on the mend though still very week yet.  Pericarditis can be very serious if not caught in time so we were glad she hadn't given up trying to get the right care.  It was a very scary week and exhausting for all.   Here's hoping September will be far better.  My husband is finally retired and can enjoy not having to be in the rat race any longer.  We're going to do some things we've had to put off and get ready to sell house and find our forever home.
