Yesterday was another busy day started early well early for me at 6.30am after getting Little Leo off to day care I came home and had breakfast checked a few emails only a few and then mum was here to pick me up.
She had an appointment over at the John Hunter Hospital for a CT Scan of her heart her appointment was for 9am and we were there by 8.30am and left at 12.30pm so we were there 4 hours anyway when we arrived they took mums blood pressure and checked her heart rate.
Mums heart rate was 95 beats per minute and it had to be no higher then 65 beats per minute so she was given 2 50mg tablets of something called Metoprolol Tartrate to slow her heart we were told it would take 45 - 60 minutes to work, she was given the tablets at 9.20am and after an hour her heart rate was still between 77-80 beats per minute.
Also mum was sitting in a chair at the time and she was cold and her back was starting to ache so I went and found the nurse and told her and she found mum a bed at 11am mum was given another 50mg tablet of Metoprolol Tartrate as her heart rate was still around 75 beat per minute. This 3rd tablet did the trick and in minutes her heart rate droped to 66 beats per minute and by 11.10am it had dropped to 63 beats per minute and she was taken around to have the scan. The scan itself only takes 5 minutes and after she had the scan she had to wait half an hour before she could leave, she was given an egg sandwhich and a cup of coffee, the sandwhich was not that great and the coffee was aweful but she drank it anyway.
Mum offered to buy me lunch after we left but I said no it was to growded at the cafeteria and couldn't be bothered waiting so I had lunch when I got home and then went back to reading my emails and reading some blogs but before I knew it, it was time to go and get Little Leo from day care yes we had him here again last night.
Since we had to go to the hospital we didn't get to the nursing home to see nan and we were going to go this morning but mum is still feeling washed out and tired so I told her to get some rest and I will see her tomorrow and we will see nan next week.
So today I am at last getting a chance to do a post and read blogs but hell I read some blogs ever day just somedays I read more then other days.............
