#Jaye’s Week …

Anita came home from the hospital after having the pacemaker fitted with a digital monitor, something that will be plugged in next to her bed to record her heart activity while she sleeps. This amazing gadget is linked to the hospital and can alert them and us in the event of another heart attack. It will also record if it has been called upon to restart or shock Anita’s heart back to a normal rhythm.

Knowing what to do when or if this ever happens, is extremely complicated, so the next home visit from the heart failure nurse will be full of questions.

And speaking of questions, there seems to be far too many answers now, none of which are helping us to know what is really going on at any one time.

In fact, we are more confused than ever as each doctor/person we speak to, seems to have a different explanation of what’s going on.

Anita is progressing, albeit slowly and that’s what really counts, isn’t it?

Ten days later, Anita began to have trouble breathing again, so it was back to the hospital to have her checked out.

It all seemed like the worst kind of Déjà vu.

Before the pacemaker was fitted, Anita was getting on well, doing small jobs around the house and even walking to town almost every day.

This simple procedure seems to have sent her back to how she was in the beginning, something she is not happy about!

They were very thorough with their checks, and everything was deemed normal apart from the fluid in her lungs, but no explanation as to why.

As the next lockdown starts, I am hoping to knuckle down and finally get cracking with the writing as my muse is getting so tired of waiting for me. 

I just wish she could learn to type!

Good luck to those of you who are taking part in NaNo this year!

  1. Dealing with hospitals, doctors, and a bevy of nurses is so overwhelming. I hope you get answers that set your hearts at ease (yes, pun intended), and you can both find yourselves on the road to recovery. All the best, my friends. 💕💕

  2. Ach, getting straight answers is the hardest part… they only seem to tell you what they think you need to hear, never the whole story! I hope Anita continues on the mend… it is a big think to ask your body to go through xx

  3. Jaye, I’m very happy to hear that Anita is home. I had a friend from college also complain about similarly inconsistent information and feedback from the various medical people, particularly regarding the at home care. Wishing you both well and happy. Hugs on the wing.

  4. I certainly hope Anita improves. Sorry about all the confusion but that is the way of medical things it seems. I had to laugh at the idea of a muse doing the typing. Those muses just sit around and throw out ideas. When do they do any real work? 😂

  5. I’m back on-line! 😀 faster and stronger than ever before! I hope things have smoothed our fot Anita a little bit by now.
    Take care friend … and I don’t think it’s unrealistic to expect one’s must to learn to type, after all they do is just sit around a idea-ate! 😀

  6. We have looked after our lovely daughter for 15 years who sadly suffers with a mitochondrial disorder. It’s funny, our life is very different to 99% of other people, but it’s a good life nonetheless, just, different. It’s not down to us to choose, all we can do is the best with what we’re given.


we would love to hear from you!
