Sunday in ICU


I promised my sons to watch the Snake Show yesterday but I was admitted at ICU, Mayo Hospital due to abnormal heartbeat.I went up and down the 15-step stairs three times, since my bedroom is located uptairs.I was bringing the laundry down because it's wash day.On the 3rd time, I almost fainted and my heart was beating too fast and I felt severe pain in my heart.I was crying due to the pain.So I was rushed to the hospital.I was immediately rushed to ICU, and doctors tried to normalized my heartbeat.I thought, I was gonna die, because after 2 hours of trying, my heartbeat is 240/ minute.they don't have choice but to give me electric shock.I refused.I told them, if my heart stop beating, then do it.The heart speacialist who was off duty but summoned, came at that moment, luckily, with massage and a lot of injections, my heartbeat was normalized, so do with my blood pressure.So now, on doctor's advice, no housework for me, bedrest if possible.How can I, when I have 3 sons to take care and a good househelp is impossible to find in this country.A lot of Filipina domestic helpers here, but honestly, I can't afford to pay $500/month.
