Heart to Heart

by Kym on February 19, 2009

David and I have had a couple of crazy scary days…I was picking stuff up around the house Tuesday when I felt my chest being squeezed. I started having pain under my left arm…and then when I started to get up I was dizzy. Long story short, I am fine…my heart is fine and I know that the Haywood county paramedics, abulance drivers, hospital workers are all wonderful, quick responding people who are happy to help!
First David and I checked out syptoms on the computer, and I took a couple of baby asprin just in case. Then we called 911.
After the paramedic advised that I go on in to the hospital, I got my second abulance ride ever. First time as a patient. I got the works, nitro, bloodwork, chest x-ray, ct-scan with special dye in my body, and then an overnight stay to be observed and a stress test in the morning. All that to find out that my heart is okay.
What I learned besides how nice and fast the hospital staff is, is that no symptoms are too small to take for granted. I am glad to know everything is okay, and I am thankful for my family and friends who helped while I was staying in the “Haywood Hilton”. My neighbor brought us 2 giant tasty casseroles (thanks so much, Susan!) and my in-laws and their good friends met David at the hospital to care for Ron and Kiley.
I learned all over again, that God puts people in our lives right where we are right when we need them!

Glad you are okay. So, did they determine what caused your symptoms?

They don’t know. I immediately took asprin which is supposed to help, so maybe I prevented something??? Or it was stress (like I have never had stress before!) I will follow up with my regular Dr., who came to the hospital to see and talk with me! That was cool…first time I have had a regular Dr. since we were in the military…except for when I was having babies!
