health run down
<Thanks folks. It started with a midnight visit to the E.R. with terrible stomach pains which resulted in a horrible half hour after a X-ray showed a blockage, that cleared I was put on a drip to get my potassium levels back to normal After a visit to outpatients a few days later with more tests Now I am back home with a new batch of meds and hoping for the best

You'll be fine sweetie. It's just that you're not used to being ill and it's shaken you. Let's hope for brighter weather tomorrow, so you can get out and have a short walk.

As they always say - "keep taking the pills"!!!!. xxx

Hope that you are staying better now, Mickey.
That sounds a bit nasty, but I'm pleased that the NHS sorted things out for you.

It's usually the other member of my household that end up in hospital [gall-bladders a speciality, it seems] but a couple of years ago, my notoriously low blood pressure & a streaming head cold / flu caused me to flake out completely. Scared OH into calling out the ambulance. Ended up on a drip for re-hydration etc for a few hours ... I definitely can't sleep in hospital !

Thanks for that Mick. Yes a blockage is definitely not to be taken lightly. I had minor blockages for years until they found what was wrong with me when I had that surgery 2.5 years ago. The stomach pain is as I call it "white knuckle". I can empathize.. For most people it is a 1 time thing. Do what the drs tell you and It will be fine.
