Blog Giveaway - First Aid Kit "Trisha Style"

This past week, by surprise, I spent some time in the hospital for chest pains. Since there is a history of heart attacks in my family on both sides, they took great care in finally diagnosing that it was not my heart. They are now suspecting it is my esophagus, and are relating it to the tearing, ripping pain in my upper back, that I had last week when I choked on a small crumb of bread. This pain was "off the charts" and I had two separate episodes very close together. So next week will be filled with Dr. visits and testing, including the dreaded scope! ( I sincerely hope they will be feeding me valium, hours before this test to calm both me and my hyper gag reflex.) I am not looking forward to any of it but have no choice in getting it taken care of. It hurts to eat and when I do it feels like what those pictures look like, of a snake swallowing something whole - like it is blocked there. eeek. And there is constant pressure. The best case scenario is that I can drop a few pounds in the process. :0)
So if you would be so kind to think a good thought, or say a short prayer that this "doctoring" all moves quickly and I can be back blogging away really soon.
Now, since I will be lonely and feeling down, I really could use a cheery thought or two. So, I am going to have a blog giveaway for a "first aid kit -Trisha style" (and be assured that it WILL include chocolate) . The person who is kind enough to take the time to send me a cheery post (and is selected by those random selector thingys) will receive the "kit".
I will be posting a picture of my "First Aid Kit" as soon as I can get hubby to pick up a few of the special surprises I have on my list! The contest will go on until October 15th unless I am in the hospital again, or then directly after I get out.
Keep a good thought!
xoxo
Trisha

Oh dear, I have only recently found your blog and so sorry to hear you have been unwell.

Do get better soon as we will miss your posts about the pure beauty of the color white. As another fan of the sweetest color that does not show in the rainbow all I can offer is warm hugs and a suggestion to sit out side and enjoy the warmth of an autumn’s afternoon.

Hope to hear you are better soon.

Trish,
So sorry to hear you are not feeling well. I spent a 15 hour day at the chest pain center at the hospital where I work last Feb. but it turned out to be pulled muscles in my chest wall instead of a heart attack. I have had the test done that you are going to have and it is really not too bad. You will be in my thoughts & prayers and I hope you are feeling better soon! Love & hugs and just stay calm & think of all of those dreamy whites!!!!

Trisha -

Just found your blog and do so love the vintage white. I try to have some in my house even though I live with 4 males. My husband and three boys.

I do hope that the doctors find out what is wrong, without too much pain for you, and that you are feeling all better soon.

Blessings,
Robin

I am so sorry that you have been feeling under the weather! I will certainly be thinking of you! Please be assured that you will be just fine. I went through this myself - thought I was having a heart attack - it was my esophogas - meds took care of that. I also had an edoscopy and I also have gag reflex ... and here I am today - reading and enjoying your lovely blog.

Wishing you good health and many blessed tomorrows,
Deborah

Pearl Maple said...

You have been very quiet, fingers crossed that means you are getting better and the doctors suggested thrift shopping as therapy. (a girl can only hope for that :)
