My day started like this.
Woke up at 7:00am and stared getting ready to go to urgent care. I changed the laundry over and took all of my meds. By the time I started to straighten my hair I felt dizzy and unsteady. I checked my blood pressure and it was okay but my pulse was 106 bpm. I decided to rest for a bit longer so I climbed back into bed with my husband and all four animals.
I slept for another two hours and finally had strength enough to do my hair and put on some makeup. Got to urgent care and my pulse was at 108 bpm. I think the doctor could tell that I was anxious because she put her hand on my shoulder and said:
“Darlin you just went through a major surgery, your heart rate is so high because your extremely fatigued, your only taking in liquids and your probably over doing yourself. I’m amazed that you were able to get out of the house.”
I felt much more at ease after that. For the rest of the day I’ll be on the couch watching Unsolved Mysterys trying to get my 64oz of fluids in.
