I made it to yizkor. Barely.

I did *not* spend the first night of Shavuot awake, but my husband did. And I did not go to shul that day at all, but by that night I was feeling much better, and even more so this morning.

And I put on my new navy blue suit and walked with my husband to synagogue - a five minute walk. And halfway there, I started to feel funny. I should have turned around and gone home, but, you know. Yizkor. Memorial for the dead. Daddy. You don't actually need a minyan, but.

I got there, and figured I'd sit more than usual - normally, I stand for the repetition of the Amida, the standing prayer, when most people sit. I'd sit. I'd sit unless I had to stand. And, anyway, I got there and got caught up in time for the reading of the Book of Ruth and the Torah reading - plenty of sitting time, right?

Wrong.

I had to clutch chair backs to stand - I was dizzy and lightheaded and weak. So, right after yizkor, before the additional service, we left. I leaned on my husband's arm all the way home.

I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow. I called (yes, on yom tov) and made an appointment for tomorrow morning. Only it's my doctor, who is out for a few days. It's his partner, the dermatologist. *Sigh*.

Refuah Shelema to you.

I hope you feel better soon!

I hope the doctor is helpful.

Refuah Sheleimah. I'm sorry that you are not feeling better.

Oh no, I'm sorry your Yom Tov went so badly. Glad you made it to yizkor, I guess, but still... hope the appointment goes well even though you're stuck with the dermatologist.
