A trip to the ER
Over the last coupla days Bea had complained about shortness of breath, and yesterday evening it got worse. The symptoms she had, were those of a heart attack. So we got busy with calling our insurance company, preparing for a claim.
We had to go over dark dusty desert roads to get out of the BLM-camp and reached the Emergency Room of the El Centro Regional Hospital about 40 minutes later.
Over the course of the next hours Bea got checked and cross-checked. After 4 1/2hrs of doing tests she was released with the message that the tests hadn't shown anything wrong with her.
We had first anticipated that the dust in the area would be the culprit, but that didn't seem to be the case. We are still at a loss as to what went wrong.
Had this been a real cardiac arrest case we would not have made it to the hospital in time. The unfortunate situation with the closed bridge has given us a disadvantage which could turn out deadly in live-or-death emergency.
I am not in the mood to elaborate any further, just wanted to let this message leave my laptop.
