Well I spent most of the night here at the emergency department of our local hospital
Went to bed around nine last night. All good
Then that familiar tightening of the throat and the swelling of the area made me get up and decide to try taking
More antihistamine tablets.
Soon I had to use the epipen again
Woke hubby up
And off to hospital we went
Got there just after 10.30pm.
The nurses were wonderful
They could see I was about to have an anxiety attack and just kept talking to me calmly
Giving me hugs and being wonderful human beings
I had to have another shot of adrenaline when I got there and steroids intravenously
And it was a watch and wait situation
I sent hubby home to sleep. No sleep in the ER
By 3.30am I was given the all clear to go home
They gave me prednisone and enough for two more days
And let me ring hubby to come get me
I was back in my bed at four this morning
I’m exhausted, sore from all the adrenaline and the panic attack
But I’m still here.
That kind of excitement I don’t need thanks
It’s only been six months since the last time.
Way too soon
See ya. xxx
