It’s been a rough few weeks here which is why I haven’t been on. I will try to catch up with all of you when I can. So luckily, I escaped getting Covid even though my son had it in our home. He isolated for 10 days up in his room while I played nursemaid from the other side of his door. He’s much improved now and back to university which is great.
But then I fainted. Not part of the virus, but just something that happened. I didn’t even know it happened until I woke up on the floor of my family room with my coat on sweating. I tried to take off my coat and felt what I thought was sweat, running down my face. In fact, it was blood. Apparently I fell on my face and broke my nose in two places. It was awful to say the least. Blood was everywhere and luckily my kids came home and found me. Nobody knows why I fainted, perhaps I never will know, but I haven’t done it again so that’s good.
I went to the hospital because I thought I had a concussion since I was throwing up violently. A CAT scan proved that wrong which is good. And no, I didn’t have a heart attack or stroke either. That was checked too. So who knows why it happened, but I do know I felt a little less steady for the past few weeks.
The kids have been good about caring for me. I’ve had my nose re-broken to set it correctly (so painful) and I’m almost back to ‘normal’ again. A little remaining bruising on my face, but that’s it. So fingers crossed I’m back to feeling good again.
How are all of you?
PS Just before I was going to post this, a man knocked on my door with a floral delivery from a dear friend. The tears were just knocked out of me for the kindness that so many people have shown me. It’s not the first delivery since my fainting incident. Another dear friend sent me a chicken soup delivery with all the fixings and the most delicious chocolate chip cookies! I am feeling very warm and fuzzy today. I hope you are too….
