Hello Friends,
I'm back from spending 4 days on the cardiac floor of our local hospital courtesy of a bout of chest pain that started around 2:30AM on Sat. I went into the hospital following abnormal EKGs in the doctor's office two weeks ago and continued with abnormal EKGs in the ER Sat morning. The good news is, after 4 days of extensive testing including many scans, ultasounds, echocardiograms and a stress test...the doctor's couldn't find a thing wrong with my heart or lungs and I left the hospital today with better EKGs than I had when I went in. Who says prayer doesn't work!!!!!
I see my medical doctor again in 2 weeks and he'd like to schedule me with my surgeon just to do some scopes to rule out any major problem with the GI system, small change when compaired to the heart I'm still a bit wore out from hospital life, but feeling much better than Sat and I can go back to work this Fri night. After 4 hospitalizations within a year, I'm hoping 2003 is a bit kinder in the health department.
Thank you all for your kind words, your thoughts and your prayers.
Love,
Ruth

Ruth...I'm so glad to hear this news!  Problems with the heart can be so scary.  I wish you the best as further tests are done to locate the cause of the chest pain.  Hugs!

VERY glad you are doing better!!

We're often visited by angels unawares, Ruth... I believe you have a few with you!

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

Know what Ruth I am gonna pray for you girl, you deserve nothing but the best and I want you feeling 100%.  I am SO glad to hear you cleared your tests and Nan is right - the only problem about you getting better is you head back to the hospital
Please do take care, hugs to you sweet lady.
