How did you spend Christmas?

Me? In critical care. Yes. I waited how long to spend time with my daughter and grandkids and I end up in the hospital.

Crazy. I had a migraine that started last Wednesday and by Sunday had me in urgent care. They sent me home after a shot in the butt and some pain meds. That night was horrible so went to the doctor on Monday.

Well he didn’t think it was normal that I would have my first migraine ever at my age. The doctor sent me straight over to the ER for a MRI.

At first I thought the ER doctor was joking when he said I tore the artery that runs up through my neck. And I would be staying here for a few days.

That was Monday. Still trying to figure out how I did this. It is usually the result of an accident. Not me. I just happened to tear my artery.

Things I’ve learned while here. Critical care patients get lots of attention. It is more serious than I ever thought. Don’t let a migraine go five days without medical attention. My grandson isn’t afraid of hospitals.

Hope your Christmas was wonderful! Miss y’all!

Lift a glass for me and let’s get 2014 off to a better start!
