Is my world back on its axis again? Still spinning but more controlled!!!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Thank you to everyone who said my name and Ken's in your prayers and sent positive vibes our way. The Lord answered our prayers and once again, he did not fail me. I have been released from the hospital this evening with a diagnosis that my heart is fine. I passed the chemical stress test with flying colors. My EKG yesterday was perfect so I am not sure why the felt the need to keep me last night and do the stress test today. Although they wanted to be positive due to the massive amount of check pain I was having. They wanted to know if I had injured my chest, lifting anything heavy, etc. I thought about it for a few moments and couldn't think of anything. CRS disorder?
The doctor said she was glad that there was no problem with my am I for sure, even more than she is...but at least now if I should ever have problems, we already have a good baseline to compare to and move forward with. I told them the only thing I ever had as far as heart problems go...I have had it broken a couple of times...haven't we all?! emoticon emoticon
Upon arriving home, my dear neighbor immediately rush over and read me the riot act...that I needed to start taking better care of myself, yada, yada, yada. You have to understand she is in her 80s and is a wonderful "mother" to Ken and I. She said and I could repeat it twice but I honestly never thought about it. "You probably hurt yourself Friday (yes Friday) when you moved all those big yard toys and donated them to the church." OOPS...yes I did do that on Friday and the pain started Saturday evening. (The church was very happy to have them... I am sure. Believe me, I was sure!!! After moving them for the past six years every week or so, I was very sure.) Did I hurt myself doing it? Who knows... possibly pulled a muscle? Well I moved three truck loads of those big toys that McKenzie no longer plays with as she is really to tall for them...A Step 2 Climber with slide and swing, Little Tykes climber/play yard which is two round building things with two slides and a climb through, Crazy Coupe, Town Taxi, Little Tykes Playhouse, wagon, wheelbarrow, gas pumps and a Dora the Explorer scooter to name a few of the items. Dear Joe offered to help me and even offered himself and his truck. When I picked McKenzie up, I borrowed her Dad's truck and thought I would get it done before it started storming. The Church was glad to get them and I had plenty of help on that end...but it was Ken, McKenzie and I at our house. Ken did as much as he could and together we did get the job done. I was so excited when I came home and the yard was empty except for our picnic table!!! No more dragging those toys around to mow the grass. Yippee and wonderful!!!
I will call the doctor tomorrow and mention this...or maybe I will wait until I go in to see her next week, hmm. I will decide in the morning when I call to set up my follow-up appointment.
Ken's echo-cardiogram was scheduled for 6:45 and he was finished before I was even taken down to start the stress test. He said the technician said everything was fine. Of course, that only means that they completed the test and the results would be going to his doctor. (Thank you, Jill, for clarifying that for me.) I am praying that it also means his heart is ok. He will be going to the doctor next week for his doctor to explain his test results and his blood work.
Tomorrow morning I will be in the dermatologist office as he is check this crazy rash again...just a follow up visit. What happened to the family doctor of my childhood who treated everything that was wrong with you in one visit. Now one has to have a doctor for every organ, part of the body or body function. Unbelievable...
Praise the Lord that He is the one and only God, creator of the Heaven and the Earth and the ultimate doctor. I pray that He continues to be the steadying factor in my life and I thank Him and praise Him daily for all the He does.
Have a wonderful night and may you be blessed in the upcoming days.
Blessings and hugs,

    Sooo Glad your Heart is fine Helen ... Its a wonder they didn't find a enlargement!! .
    Your heart is so big .. you do so much for everyone else, it is time you started looking after yourself too!
    Those yard toy's were far too much for you too be moving around .
    No wonder you had chest pain!.
    My Helen .. did something the same a few months ago ..she didn't want to ask for help .. and she fetched up the hospital over night ..She had all these tests done ..and they found out that her heart is fine .. thank goodness ..she has enough problems with her kidney. The best thing about that was, it was really good getting her heart checked we have heart disease in the family and Thank God she has not got that!..
    Take Care of yourself my dear friend ...Susie and Bobby emoticon

    Phew! Glad that the doc has cleared you.

    And that sounds like a lot of moving stuff around!

    Glad everything is OK- Good you had the heart checked and you have the results on record. I popped a rib from lifting boxes and that was pretty painful, hard to breathe. I knew what it was though and the chiro fixed it right up. You must have strained a muscle but a smart call to go to the hospital for any pain you are suspicious of like that - they say it is harder to identify heart attack symptoms in women.

    Such great news that everything is okay with your heart....THANK YOU LORD!

    That was such a kind gesture to give those toys that McKenzie had out- grown to other children that can use them.

    blessings to you!

    Hi Helen, so glad you're fine! It did really sound like heart problems to me and I've been a first aid attendant for ages! Stop doing all that heavy work and take care of yourself! Hugs, Wilma

    Well, maybe moving all those toys around was the problem. Sounds like things are making progress. I love the way you encourage me even through your trials. You are an amazing lady. emoticon
