To all my loyal readers and followers...

Sorry I have been gone so long...

About 3 weeks ago hubby got really sick, then gave it to me about a week later. Last Monday I went for a followup appointment at my doctor re: my BP and cholesterol. When I got there my oxygen was 89%, and he had me walk around hooked up to the monitor and it dropped to 83% and my pulse was 110. He sent me to the ER and I was admitted to the hospital. I was discharged yesterday. The last question my ER doc asked me was "If you quit breathing, do you want us to take heroic measures to keep you alive?"

I am only 49...that question scared the CRAP out of me. So I really need to change my ways.

Also, at my insistence, Hubby also went to the doc on Monday cuz I told him it was unnatural to be that sick for three weeks. Turns out he had an infection that spread throughout his body. His BP was 103/65. He was also admitted to the hospital and was released today.

I have always said I would die before him, but now I'm not so sure.

Looks like our lives of hard and fast living are catching up to us.

But now that I am better I will be posting again.  If you would like to follow my progress on improving my health, you can do so here @ My Health Quest.
