My Health Must Be Getting Worse

On Saturday, the 28th of June, I had three seizures in less than 10 minutes. My friends called 911 and I was rushed to the hospital. The doctors were thinking it could also be small strokes. It was around 5:30 PM when they took me and sometime Sunday morning when they released me to go home. While at the hospital, I had blood work done on me, and they also did a CT scan of my head. Surprisingly enough, everything came back normal. They gave me a prescription to start back on my anti-seizure medicine, and an antibiotic for the abscess. Until about three days earlier, I hadn’t had a seizure in over 6-8 months. I had even stopped taking my medicine, I was doing so well. And so far as the abscess goes, I hadn’t had one in over 18 months or more. There for about two years, I was getting abscesses every couple of months. Needless to say, I am sort of bummed out about it.

I see my primary care later today, and have to get a referral to the neurologist about the seizures. My finger tips have started splitting open again, so I will have to find out if my Vitamin D3 is low again.  And to think I hadn’t been to the ER since January of this year, the longest I had been without having to go in many years. I really thought this was going to be my “well” year. Guess not.

On the 24th of June I wrote about how my artificial bladder had been acting up. Well lo and behold if I didn’t soil everything Saturday night while I was at the hospital. Luckily I was in a hospital gown, so I didn’t soil my gown. But embarrassingly enough I had to wear an adult diaper home, because my underclothes did get soiled. Something tells me I am getting ready for another roller coaster ride, that unfortunately is my life. This ride is going to be the hardest one yet, what with so many different things acting up on me again now. I just pray to God that I will be able to hang on for the whole ride and not fall off. I hope when all is said and done, I will be able to write poems about the ride and once again start laughing about it. Of course, only time will tell.
