Alhamdulillah

As written in my previous entry I went to get medical treatment at our local hospital.My sister Aini came to fetch me and we went to Alexandra Hospital at noon as she has prior appt with her staff.


As soon as I arrived I was registered and paid $75 upfront and was assessed by a nurse with my complains.I was then brought to the daycase ward where ECG for the heart was done,blood sample taken for test and chest xray too.On arrival my blood pressure was high and they monitored me for almost 2.5 hrs while waiting for the results.


Alexandra Hospital was where I did my trainning and I told the staff that I used to work there before long before they were born ..... hehe .... The doctor on duty came and got all my complains and history noted .. a pleasant young man indeed when he realises that I am a nursing staff he took the blood sample himself instead of the nursing staff ...and I told him I only have ONE GOOD vein he can sucks from!! yes when you are obese all the veins are hidden under that pile of fats.


The ECG for the heart is normal 'thank god' and so is the chest xray and cardiac enzyme *phew*...but the tightness is still there .......
My main worry actually is having PE (pulmonary embolism) thats a blood clot in artery in my leg due to long flight to and from states....common on long flight.I told the doctor about my worry and he makes extra examination on that as we have history in the family my arwah father.It maynot show immediate but I am taking no chances .......


I have to monitor my blood pressure and if its still high next few days I may have to change to higher dose of medication .... am keeping my fingers crossed that it will come down.After final examination I finally was discharged at 2.45pm with medications and 2 days of medical leave to rest.


Thank you dear friends who commented in the last entry and thank you for being there for me.
To kak teh who sms all the way from London thank you too and not forgetting cikmilah,ummi365 and norabella for your smses too.
You are always in my thoughts too
