Where have I been? PT1

Life is always full of surprises.
What do i say, Working long hours, high stressful job, and something has to give.
Your body does not go any longer.
No warning.
It stops.
Actuslly the morning of my attack, i said to my husband, actually, i am feeling the best i have for a long while, and within 2 hours, Life changes around.
No warning.
The giddiness i have been experiencing for weeks, is now so giddy, i cannot focus properly.
A man comes to buy a future stud male, i am trying my hardest to stay focused, and to hold the male, and explain the quality of the male. I am holding the male, most of our alpacas are very easy to hold, but this day, the male was standing still for me, but i could not focus, and took all my might.
Giddiness is getting worse, and all of a sudden i am freezing cold.
This keeps asking me questions, i know i am answering, but i really do not know what i am saying.
Yes, he wants the male, now the paperwork.
Another friend, Jenny calls in with another lady, Tiffany, and he said i will go now, i said i would send him the paperwork and then he said can you put him in the trailer.
His trailer was probably 300 metres away, i asked him could he drive the trailer to the yards, as he drives out he would have to go to this point anyway.
He was hesitant, i said to him, i could not walk him over to his trailer, please could you drive the trailer over, alright he said.
I looked at Jenny in the Kitchen making herself a coffee, i walked over and asked her to help me, i said to her i feel strange.
She helped me place the male in the trailer.
One of my favourites, The Illusionist.
He is beautiful, and will do the man well.
That was Jan 19th, 11.30am, i walk into the Kitchen.
the giddiness is worse, i am shivering, so much my teeth are chattering, it was about 36 degrees outside.
I said i am so thirsty, and i skull down a drink, ( i am not one to skull, i usually just sip), i said i am still thirsty, and i am shivering so much i put the heater on.
Jenny said i do not like the look of you.
Go to the doctor.
I said i will be alright, do not worry.
If Jenny did call in, i would not have got help, and i was told i would not be writting this blog now.
ELyse was alerted, she was helping her father.
She comes in ...get into the car,
No I am alright.
Get into the car.
i got into the car.
next thing we are at a doctors place, but i am so cold, i ma shivering so much, almost like a double shiver.
My head, it is so giddy.
We sit and wait for a doctor, as my doctor was too busy to see us.
I have never been to this doctor before.
I walk in, he puts the blood pressure machine on.
240/140
Body demp 41.3.
I am shaking, and jolting, and i do not know.
Next thing i am on a table in the next room, and some ambulance men are there, and they are very nice, and i had things on me.
I do not know what is happening.
For Elyse, it is the Peruvian nightmre all over again.
She goes out to ring her father to come straight away, the doctor said she is having wither a heart attack, or one of the clots (gained in Peru ), is moving, she must get to a hospital straight away.
Elyse walks back into the room, and only my hand bag is there, where is her mum?
This is the second time now, she has got me help in a nick of time.
This poor girl, so much on her shoulders.

I hope you are feeling better now Raelene. That sounds like it was pretty scary for you all.

Take care
