I would have been terrified? So glad that you are now home (ar)resting! Mind if I inquire as to the cyst’s location? Did you know about having the cyst before all of this happened? I ask because the doctor for the past 3 years has told me I have a cyst, but I can’t feel it, doesn’t affect me negatively and frankly its out of sight, out of mind. I’ve been warned about a rupture, but I’m hardheaded. You’ve scared me now.
I knew a lot of you knew what was going on from facebook. We planned our date night at home. Saturday morning I was feeling cruddy. So we spent the day being lazy. Hubby picked up kids that evening from babysitter. They weren’t home two hours and I felt light headed. Hubby got kids to babysitter and was only gone 10 minutes. By the time be got back I couldn’t even walk. We got to the nearest hospital 10 minutes later. My heart rate was 186 and my bp was way too low. I started to majorly hemorrhage . I had a cyst rupture and it took them three hours to stabilize me for surgery. I ended up having emergency surgery and two blood transfusions at midnight. I lost a huge amount of blood to the point I could have died.I was lucky enough to have been in the hospital where they had access to things to help. I am home now and on couch arrest for two weeks . I am doing way better. It just takes time to heal and build blood volume. Our emergency fund will cover the 20% we will owe on the bill. I hope anyway. If not we make payments. I also asked for a cash discount. We just have to wait for the bill to come and go from there. I am just glad to be alive and with my kiddos. 😉
