so i got home from working an 8 hur shift at 9:30 last night only to have my recently turned 18yr old sister tell me she collapsed in the shower at 4pm!!
so this is what happened... she was going on a first date (with one of my friends) he got there early to pick her up and she hadnt jumped in the shower yet. she asks him to wait and jumps in. he hears a funny noise and asks if shes ok she doesnt answer.. so he opens the door and shes unconsious in the shower!!. he rushes over and tries to wake her up she comes too in about 30sec and then tries to stand and collapses again!! this time she didnt come too and he pulls her out of the shower, where she finally does. he carries her to the bedroom and she falls asleep and he keeps waking her up to see if shes ok. she makes him promiss not to call me (because she wants to go to this music festival today).
i get home at 9:30 and she tells me (grrrrrrr) i say get your arse in the car im taking you to the doctors. doctor sends us to emergency.
emergency gets us through in about an hour (wooo) she has an ECG done and an ultrasound of her heart. the ECG found that her right ventrical (lower chamber of the heart) is enlarged, but they need to do more sensitive testing. so its off to the cardio specialist next week..shes fine now i checked on her at 3 am and at 6 am and she was ok.
she left for the music festival at 9 she just told me she feels like shes fallen down a flight of stairs and is nausious (sp) grrreeeattttttttt
