An Unexpected Detour!

We had a bit of a blip in our
holiday on Thursday. 

Which ended up with my arm being
mercilessly squeezed at times. 

My finger encased in a lovely rubber
holder that beeped.

A bracelet to identify who I was, 
although the whole time we were
there, no one checked it!

My vitals were questionable!

But in the end, the drugs
kicked in & I was all happy again!!

I had a bit of an anaphylatic 
reaction to something that we
have not yet identified. 

It was scary but I was well taken
care of by the awesome Island medical
staff & my dh, who was so calm. 

Today, all is well, the groggy feeling
has gone away & I'm back to me.

Oh my gosh!! Soo glad you're "ok"!! Do you carry an epipen with you??

I do carry an epiPen but we were just down the street from the hospital, so we ventured in there as it was happening so quickly & we didn't want to take a chance that I'd have to intubated. Hate that! Hate having allergies! But fine now. Still not sure what caused it. Always a mystery. And now we know when we move out here, the medical care will be excellent!
