Last week had to be one of the toughest weeks I have faced for a very long time, as each day went on it got worse. It all started off wrong and should have been a warning of what was to come.
Monday my baby had his first seizure which was very scary, so rushed him to the doctors, hopefully it is a one-off. Then by the end of the week all 4 kids plus Mr Savvy were ill.Then there was my breakdown in the school playground of all places which is a bit ironic as I hate the school playground and all the politics that go on within the other parents. The best bit about the week was the meeting at school where I was given lots of support, so things were looking up. Then BANG !!!! I get a phone call from the doctor over some blood tests on Friday.
My blood results came back that I had high cholesterol, now that on its own isn’t a worry but mix that with high unstable blood pressure and I am heading very rapidly towards a stroke/heart attack. Very scary stuff and not what I wanted to hear. My blood pressure nearly caused me to die the night I had Gnome as it became so uncontrollable. The nurses were so worried I was being checked every 10-15 minutes and wired up to all the monitors beeping away. So no way was I going to let my blood pressure get the better of me. I will do what ever it takes to get my blood pressure down. I want to be here and watch the kids grow up.
My concern is for Little Gnome he has his 1 year development check on Wednesday, what is this going to tell me that I don’t already nothing but it is going to highlight what he can’t do and make it more real. I am dreading Wednesday
