That is what Elizabeth asked me two months ago. I told her I didn’t know, because I had never fainted before. That should have set off warning bells, but I went on blissfully unaware of what it is like. In case you want to know why she wanted to know (I did!), she said it was because they faint in books a lot. Good point.
So I was fine until I went to the gyno this week. I went in for a very normal, routine procedure down below (that’s all the detail you will get Jill!), and I must have looked a little odd, because both the doctor and nurse wanted to know if I was ok. Other than a fair bit of pain from what the doc was doing, I thought I was fine and just wanted him to get it done and over with (oh the joys of being a woman). Next thing I decided I did feel a bit sick, and was just starting to spew into this little cup wondering how on earth that would hold all that was in my tummy, when I found myself happily dreaming…… I don’t know what I was dreaming about, but it was nice and I was not impressed by being woken by this woman slapping my cheeks and talking to me. I couldn’t for the world remember where I was or why I was in this stark white room, it was quite a strange sensation….. it took a few seconds and then I realized and wished I was asleep again 🙂
So that’s rather dramatic, don’t you think? They wouldn’t let me drive home. Funny that. DH had to come pick me up, poor guy. The nurse called him when I had come out of my stupor, and I remember thinking what a nice calm voice she had while she was informing him not to worry, but could he please call the surgery (he was on the phone… he always seems to be on the phone when I need him….). I went to bed at 8.30 that night, woke up at 7.15 to take Cameron to the train, and then went back to bed at 8.30am till 11 am… when I thought I’d better get up to get the kids ready for the dentist. After all that sleep I was fine again 🙂
You’d think I’d be nice and rested now, wouldn’t you? Strangely I still feel a bit blah, but that could also be because it is a muggy day.
Now, back to my sewing machine… I must play and do fun things 🙂 And tomorrow I get to go to class and play all day 🙂 Can’t wait!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
