Random Public Service Announcement...

Things I have learnt this week...

You may feel like you are having a heart attack when you aren't; you may also think you are not having a heart attack, when in fact you are.  Doctors cannot always tell the difference.  It's a tricky one!

So ladies pay heed, you have probably seen this before, I saw it over at Jennifer's a long time ago, and I am so glad I did; it never hurts to see it again...



If it turns out that you are thankfully not having a heart attack, the stress, strain, and continuing pain whilst you are sent for more and more tests will probably convince you that you will end up having one anyway!  Google will not help.

If you pack an over-night bag, just in case, you won't need it; the law of Sod is a good one.

If you panic-cut a cushion's worth of EPP papers and fabric to put in the over-night bag, then time on the sofa at home waiting for results is much more bearable.  Always have an EPP project ready for the unexpected; pop it next to your emergency torch and tin of corned beef, you'll thank me.

And because I am obviously not feeling quite myself, here I am rocking hospital chic - spot the Staple dress!


Linking my findings with Cindy and the Randomeers and never more pleased to do so.

Thank you for all your well wishes over the last couple of days - I won't be replying individually this time, but please believe me that you have made me smile when all I have felt like doing was the complete and utter opposite xxx

  12. Goodness me, that sounds like a very stressful few says, really hope you're back to your usual self asap x
    PS - hopefully this will make you laugh - I found out that you shouldn't listen to nurses who tell you not to worry about bringing your labour bag in, it'll only end with hubs being sent home when your waters break spectacularly in front of the nurses station! Turns out that being prepared is important :-D

  14. Oh I know how you are feeling, instead of a heart attack this week, I was at the hospital for a suspected blood clot in my leg and thankfully found out I did not have one, but yes, like you I packed a bag and a sewing project! Glad to know you are ok!

  27. If I were to send you a sewing project, it would take about 4 days to arrive via Postal express. Really hope you are okay and figure out what is wrong.
    We could each send you a hexie in the mail so you'll have something to do when you get back home.

  38. Oh you! I don't know how I missed this but rest up and look after yourself, you are way to funny to be off duty for too long, I need my regular injection of Hadders to brighten my life! Also I know how the worrying works, when hubby was in earlier this year I was convinced I would have a heart attack from the stress but he on the other hand had a lovely few days rest!
