Geoff survives another medical emergency.

Yep, another very serious medical emergency almost took Geoff out this time. Sudden onset Cardio pulmonary oedema, basically life threatening heart attack with heart failure following in the footsteps and masive water retention after that, very debilitating.
I'll try to explainn what happened, very briefly.
It was the middle of the night and I was getting ready for bed, my daughter had just left for the United states and I was tired. I was sitting on the bed when I felt this pain in my chest, I knew what it was, a heart attack, but I also knew that with a bit of relaxation and rest it would pass. Well it went on for a short while then dissipated as expected. What I wasn't expecting was what came next, there was this uncomfortable pain, also in my chest, but it didn't feel like a heart attack, just uncomfortable. Well this also dissipated after a short while and so I went to sleep. The next morning my whole life came to an abrupt halt.
When I finally woke the next morning I couldn't move. Taking three steps was out of the question. I had absolutely no energy at all. Just switching my computer on was way out of my ability, everything came to a crashing halt.
Anyway, after months of trying to work out what was going on, struggling all the while, I finally got to see a doctor and from there things were sorted out, sort of, and I escaped the hospital on Saturday evening. So back to work, again sort of, today on monday and this blog post is the first thing I'm attending to, to let you know that I'm still alive.
There is so much I want to tell you about but that will have to wait for the next post.
Blessings from Geoff in Johannesburg in South africa.

  1. Hi Geoff, every day of our lives was written in His book before even one of them was formed. There is so much I could say about this scripture but the Lord understands our situations and He is our Rock. I am glad you are feeling better and look forward to what you want to tell us in future posts.. The main thing is that you are feeling better at this moment and I pray for the peace that passes all understanding to come into your life as you, as we all do, go through all the trials while on this earth. God bless you.
