A Seizure at work

So I had my first seizure at work yesterday. That was interesting to say the least. Was taken by Ambulance to the Irvine Hoag Hospital and was given tests, blood drawn etc. I was a very small seizure and those can sometimes be bad ones. I was pretty out of it for a while. Once I got release I got home and pretty much crashed.

So i just woke up a bit before 7am. I slept from around 3pm to just a bit ago. The meds they gave me did wonders apparently. Just feeling groggy and like I have a hang over this morning. So nothing but more rest for me and more fluids to continue to make sure I stay hydrated today. Hoag hostital of Irvine yesterday was the best level of care I ever received at an ER ever. Plus once they found out I was a Monarch employee the care level stepped up even better. It was my first time having a seizure at work so it was kinda embarrasing watching my co workers seeing me rolled out on stretcher by the Fire Dept and Paramedics. But it is what it is. I couldn't be more thankful for the Monarch staff involved that assisted and to my boss that went to the ER with me until Emilee got there. I still feel really fatigued today and the doctor said that would be expected, so I definently need to get some electrolits into me. My body sucked the IV back out within 20 minutes. it was crazy. So here is another day in the life of Jonny during this new adventure I am in. One day at a time folks. One day at a time
