The ER doctor decide to admit me overnight for observation and he scheduled a stress test for Monday morning. So off I went to room 560B with instructions from the doctor to get some rest. Ha! If he was serious about the rest he should have just sent me home! It was a pleasant room with a pleasant roommate...not so pleasant food though! I spent the night ~ but I hesitate to say I slept there....'cause I really didn't! They wake you up for about a trillion things and another trillion noises wake you up when the nurses don't!
The following morning I had the stress test done and I passed! No heart problems for me! Praise the Lord for that!
It looks like it's a bad recurrence of the GERD and something new called Costochondritis. These two things combined explained the pain to every one's satisfaction. I was released at 3:30pm today with a pile of diagnosis related info, medication and directions for who to follow-up with and when.
Home Sweet Home is right where I want to be! So that's where I've been ~ no Monday Memories for now. I've been busy making more again.
Oh, and Jacqi has developed a pregnancy induced rash. It started about a week or so ago and now covers her entire body. The only way for it to go away is for her to deliver the baby. SO, Penelope will be arriving sometime between now and Wednesday...they will be inducing Jacqi's labor. The doctor will call Jacqi as soon as they have a time slot available.
Maybe she'll be here in time for my regular Wednesday grandbaby pictures. Now that would make my grateful, healthy heart so happy!
Now I must spend some time visiting all my blogging friends. I've missed "seeing" you!
I received a couple comments/emails from some folks concerned that I hadn't been tested thoroughly enough. First of all thanks for your concern ~ it really blessed me. Secondly, my stress test was two fold. It included time on a treadmill and a MUGA scan. I feel pretty comfortable with this diagnosis BUT I will be following up with my primary care doctor too.
Thanks again for caring.......
