Wednesday started off great. There is a new ATHA guild on the west side of Cleveland, Crooked River Rug Hookers. That morning we had our third meeting and already have close to 40 members. That evening I had plans to drive about an hour to a stitching guild meeting where my friend Melinda of Merry Wind Farm was the guest speaker.
Now let me go back to Tuesday. On my morning walk, without warning, I was suddenly leaning against a tree and if the tree hadn't been there I'm sure I would have fallen to the ground. I was talking on the phone and totally lucid, but just couldn't stand on my own. This lasted for maybe 30 seconds, then I was fine and continued on my walk. It scared me enough that the next day (Wednesday), I agreed to have DSO take me to the Cleveland Clinic express clinic. Well . . . based on what I told the physician's assistant, I was told I needed to go to the ER and would I like to go by ambulance since it could have been a mini stroke or bleeding? I was nervous before, but now I am totally freaked. Long story short, the ER did an EKG and the heart was fine. Bloodwork came back fine. Doctor suspects my blood sugar dropped and caused the symptoms. Nothing neurological. What a relief, but I did not get home in time to go to the stitching guild :(
Since we were close we stopped by a field of sunflowers, Maria's Field of Hope. More than a million sunflower seeds were planted in the 35-acre field this spring. This year marks the fourth year of the field. The field is planted in memory of Maria McNamara, who died of a rare brain cancer called brain stem glioma in 2007. Her parents, Ed and Megan McNamara, started the Prayers From Maria Children's Glioma Cancer Foundation, in honor of their seven-year-old daughter. The foundation's mission is to raise awareness for the need to cure childhood brain cancers.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
