Today was my day. Last night I began feeling a little sick. I had some pain in my stomach and a slight pain in my chest. I didn't think much of either and went to bed early. This morning I woke up, after a long night with Fin, who was throwing up. I went downstairs and told Chris I wasn't feeling well and asked him to stay home for a little while. I passed out and he woke me up and we decided to head to the ER. I was sure it was something simple, maybe a weird flu or at worst appendicitis.
After a series of tests, the doctors are still unsure what is causing my stomach pain. The ER doc decided to run a chest CT as well just to rule out that pain. Thankfully he did that! I have a pulmonary embolism and will be in the hospital for observation and treatment for the next 3-5 days. If you had a session schedule with me this week, you should have received an email. I will contact you to reschedule ASAP. I also have a couple of orders that will be delayed in going out.
I don't normally get quite so personal on my blag (although I do get personal) but if you are the praying type I would greatly appreciate your prayers. The doctors are very confident that I will be just fine, but we're all a little scared, since this is very rare in someone young with no other health issues.
I do feel lucky. If I had not come in today this could have been a lot worse. Good news is I will probably have a lot of spare time on my hands to proof sessions I have waiting in the ranks! So do check back for updates and some sneak peeks!
