Default Scary Weekend

Hi guys,

I hope you are all well.

Had an interesting weekend. I had a deviated septum operation about a month ago. All was going well till Saturday morning around 2am. My nose started bleeding and my wife being a nurse was able to get it to stop after about an hour. So went back to sleep then woke up at 5am with blood flowing down my throat. This time the bleeding didn't stop so Maya called the ambos and they shipped me off to the hospital emergency. By 9am they eventually got it to stop. Sent me home around 10am. Slept a few hours then sat down to watch the footy at around 5pm and the floodgates opened up again. I was on my Pat Malone (alone) so I had to call the ambos again while holding my nose and bleeding into the bathroom sink. They arrived quickly and off I went again.

This time they put these long thin balloons up the nostrils and pumped them up to stop the bleeding. They were so painful they decided to give me some morphine for the pain. With only 2.5mm of morphine my blood pressure dropped to 40 on 60 and I thought I was on my way to meet my maker as I felt the life drain from my body. I was praying hard telling Him it wasn't my time yet. The staff juiced me up with some fluids and I started to feel a bit better.

Ended up getting shipped to a hospital with an ENT specialist. I was released from hospital on Monday afternoon and I have to be off work for two weeks to recover. I lost over 1 litre of blood. Glad to get through that. Missus won't let me do anything at home but rest a have cold showers, no hot drinks or hot food, no lifting and no magambo either. Can't have any pressure in my head.

So time for reading, sleeping and watching a bit of Netflix.

Prayers for full recovery are most welcomed.

Cheers Jorge.
