Because I missed two days of work unexpectedly, I ended up working a 12 hour day today. Just getting my sparking done now which is late for me, but still important. Sparking keeps me in check and helps me to stay on routine which I need. It's okay to get off course once in a while as long as you're able to jump right back on without too miuch damage.
I forgot to mention that the hospital food really wasn't awful...in fact...it was quite good!
Thank you Sparkfriends. Andy's heart is in good shape...really good shape actually. The doctors can only conclude that he pulled a muscle in his chest which is what caused the pain and shortness of breath. What a relief.
I feel partially to blame. I'm always trying to keep exercise exciting for both of us. I want us to grow old together. I know there's no guarantee for that. I workout 4x a week, so I asked Andy to think of something he'd like to do and he said maybe boxing. So I found him a chain that incorporates boxing with cardio work. He did the trial class on Saturday and although he got through it, he said it was really difficult. Guess it was too much too soon.
I got a call from my hubby's work that he was being taken by ambulance to the hospital for chest pains. My heart just sank. I was just about to work when I got hat call and turned around. The ride seemed to take forever but in reality it was probably only about 30 minutes. When I got there, I was relieved to see that he was sitting up and alert. I prayed on the drive to the hospital that he'd be okay, and he was...so why do I assume the worst???
So they ran all sorts of tests and it turns out his heart is okay. They did jeep him overnight tonight so that they can run more tests tomorrow. Could this all be a fluke? I certainly hope so.
It's been another jam-packed weekend!! Here's how it all went down. Saturday morning was rainy, but it didn't ruin the birdie watching! Our lawn was loaded with birds. Good thing the kitties are safe inside!
I studied...a lot this weekend...and when I got tired, Bandit read a little for me.
I studied for about 4 hours on Saturday!
On Sunday morning, I taught religious education to my class of 3rd graders. The director gave me lovely tulips which we later took to our daughter's school and planted in the grotto.
I figured...she's going to be there for 3 more years...it'll be cool to come back each spring and see them coming up again.
Here's Karly and her friend Katherine in the grotto...such a beautiful place to be...so serene.
Finally...here we are...the empty nesters.
Well...we're only empty nesters for a couple days and then Karly will be home for Easter break. Whenever she comes home, our house is loaded with kids...it's so loud! But fun.
It's a shorter work week due to Easter...thank goodness! Have a good one!
