This morning I didn’t get up from bed at 8:00 AM to take my medicine as I usually do since I became sick, instead I was Facebooking and chatting in bed with my sister untill 10:00 when I felt a lot of blood running out from me even if I had a thicker protection I got even a big stain of blood in bed.
I told my sister that I had to take a shower so I could pick up my prescription of medicine at the drugstore in town. I haven’t finished rinsing off when I started feeling dizzy and see black but I could managed to rinse off and took the towel on me and was on my way to bed to lie me down but I couldn’t make it to bed instead I sat down outside the bedroom door and there I fainted and woke up when I fell down backwards hitting my head on the floor. I realized I am still naked and I wrapped myself with the towel and went to bed, I grabbed the telephone and called my husband and he told me to dial 112 and call for an ambulance which I did. While I was preparing my neighbor from Germany who just arrived last night came to visit me and I told her what just had happened so she stayed with me while I was waiting for the ambulance which came after 20 minutes. My husband arrived before the ambulance came so he could follow to the hospital.
The ambulance personnel prepared me while travelling, put a needle ready for any medicine that I need to take during the process. She gave me my medicine in liquid form and something to stop my dizziness. They took me directly to the gynecological ward who took over the care.
I met another doctor, who took care of me, did the necessary treatment of my bleeding etc. I stayed at the gynecological ward until 4:00 PM. They also gave me drops/dextrose from 12:15-16:00 hrs.
I was finally moved to Surgical Intensive care unit to rest and there I got 2 bags (1liter) of blood transfusion that took about 8 hours, so I had to stay at the hospital overnight.
At the SICU I had 3 roommates, 2 of them, old ladies, talked a lot, non stop so it’s so hard to rest and had a nap, and one of them just had a surgery and she had to call for help every hour almost so I didn’t have a good sleep at all and I’m so very very tired.
After the doctor’s round this morning she told me that she will be contacting Sahlgrenska hospital to check if they could start my treatment as soon as possible. She will be informing me when she gets an answer. I’ve waited all day while the nurses are monitoring my health. Finally she came around 4:30 PM and said there is no possible change yet but she will be calling Sahlgrenska again tomorrow. in the mean time they had to redo my blood count since it showed a very low value first so I maybe staying another night more at the hospital. They made another test and find out if it is really that low then they will give me 2 more bags of blood. Luckily the second test showed a better result of 138 so I could go home if I wanted to. The nurse called for a taxi and I went home.
Home sweet home at 9:15 PM. I had a nice sleep thank’s God!
update: August 5
My doctor called me and asked how I was doing and also told me that my treatment could start 3 days earlier, on the 18th instead of August 21st. Well, it’s not so much earlier but 3 days is better than nothing.
Another doctor of mine called me up and asking me how I was doing and even reminded me that I am scheduled for a PET/CT tomorrow August 6.
