Syncopal Episode

Ouch!If you recall, back in April of last year I had a syncopal episode (I passed out). It happened again yesterday. This time I landed face first on my desk and and had to get stiches. Neurocardiogenic syncope (or vasovagal syncope) is the likely diagnosis. I knew I was going to pass out because there is a certain feeling that I get just before it happens. I tried to get down on the floor and raise my feet but I was too slow. One of the problems is that your brain is shutting down because of a lack of blood supply so you don't always think clearly.

Anyway, the next thing I remember is being put on a stretcher and heading to the hospital. I don't recommend Stony Brook University Hospital. The nurse forgot to check my IV and it infiltrated swelling up my arm. The doctor didn't even think of getting an X-Ray in spite of the bad bruise on my eye. The Plastic Surgeon was very nice although I had to insist on a Plastic Surgeon. They were going to have a regular doctor stich up my face. So it will be a few days before I go back to work. I think it might have been too much stress that led to this.

Michel is at her hearing for her Worker's Compensation and later she has to go see the Oncologist. Mikey wouldn't get on the bus and since I don't have a car I couldn't get him to school. Later, Michel has to take me to the cardiologist so there is no rest for the weary. Tommorow, Michel is back to work. I know she is nervous but excited. I wonder if she will wake me up at 5AM!

Stress-related? How? (grin).
Hope you have time to get some rest, man. Wish I could give you some of my blood pressure, I've got more than enough.

Gosh, Tom, you're a sight for sore eyes.

No, wait, that's not right. A sore-eyed sight, perhaps. Poor guy.

That looks nasty!

Thought a Chill out song and webxercise might help but thought again. Yuck! nasty YOBs (Youth of Britain).

Hey Tom-
Looks like you took a good knock to the head. Hopefully its all healed up by now. Miss hearing from you around JR.
