My mom wanted to go to the ER because she gets this bad feeling that comes on every several months for yrs. It's not really dizziness or lightheadedness, but those are the closest words to describe it. She also feels as if she might fall. She's gone to the ER about it in the past, but this time, they did a CAT scan which came back normal, but the EKG showed a silent heart attack & there may be damage to her heart, so they kept her overnight for observation. Woah, my health nut mom! We're just glad it wasn't a full heart attack, in which maybe all her daily walking & eating right for yrs prevented that. Meanwhile, while I'm in the ER sitting at my mom's bedside... my dad, is waiting out in the waiting rm (because they only allow 1 person in the back w/ the patient). He doesn't walk the best due to a spinal issue that he had 2 surgeries on, but could get by without a cane. Well, he tripped on a rug out in the ER waiting rm & fell while on his way to the restroom & got pretty banged up...laceration on his head that needed stitches, a very bad scrape on his arm, & a few other scrapes. His glasses got scratched up. They took pics of my dad's injuries & the security guard took a statement. I happened to have my camera in my car at the time & took pics too of him & the waiting rm area where he fell. My dad was released to go home, which I drove us home. So imagine BOTH of my parents EACH in a bed in the ER! I'm an only child, so here I am sitting between them both!
