Today I Share

So what do I share
really would rather not
but at the moment all is well.

Sunday was another story
with a trip to Nashville in the ambulance.

Blood pressure 250
no details
but frightened to death,

Stayed the night
and the bottom line was Fear
and Fear you are not welcome in my life.

This fear I will overcome you
want no part of you.
I will continue to go forward.

Such a good support team, my doctor, daily visits from home health people
and I like them all.

Enough shared
but I do plan on staying around for a while longer.

Monday I plan on beginning to walk and trying to eat all I can
as weight, I gained I lost.

Son still arriving soon, buttercups are blooming
and at the moment I smile.

Thank you for your support
through what has been going on
and can I hug each of you?

I think fear is a very normal response. I am just so glad you are alright. That is a very high number.

Wow Ernestine, that is some scary time you are having. I would be terrified. I am so glad your son is coming as you always feel so much better when he is around.

I can feel the warmth of your hug. Thank you. 🙏🏻 I send you a big hug as well. Observing the beauty of, and being in awe of, nature is calming and healing. I think. Peace to you and joyful anticipation of your son’s arrival. 😌❤️

That sounds frightening! I am glad that you did not have to stay in hospital. Home is so much nicer.

Sorry to hear about your blood pressure giving you such a scare. I'm glad they got things straightened out and you got to come back home instead of having to stay at the hospital. Thank you for the hug and I send hugs right back to you.
