It is very late Monday night as I write this, but for those of you who will be expecting a book review in the morning … there won’t be one this time. My apologies.
My little Meyya got stung this afternoon, probably by a hornet, and within fifteen minutes she became very ill and lethargic. We rushed her to the animal hospital where she was treated and soon began recovering. What a relief! Since we don’t know if she actually is allergic to bee stings, I am now keeping Allernix on hand just for her. That was too scary an experience! But that was just the beginning.
This evening my respite help called me at home (an hour before I was due back to Dad’s) to tell me my dad was in distress and she wanted to call the paramedics to check on him. I said to do it and I would be there soon. When I arrived they had him hooked up to a monitor and oxygen and had found he had irregular and erratic heartbeat. Although he saw no need to go they took him to the hospital by ambulance and my husband and I followed a little later once I got some things together. So there I was, another long evening in the hospital with Dad. This time it wasn’t nearly as bad time-wise, though. Only a couple hours from the time he was admitted – after monitoring, blood work and other things – the verdict is that they are treating it as a heart attack. Dad is in hospital now for a few days during which time they will keep a close eye on him, continuing to monitor his heart, doing more tests, and finding what will work best for his treatment. My sister and I will visit him in the morning and I’ll take him one of the books he’s reading, along with some other things needed.
All this to say, there will be no book review today, but I plan to have one for Thursday.
Now I must sleep awhile.
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)
