Well, That Was Not Fun

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

Yesterday was just not my day! After the atrocious weigh-in I headed out to do errands with my toddler. We had a great lunch, went to the post office and bank. On our way to the insurance office, my chest started hurting. I figured it was heart burn until my arms started to hurt. Ruh-roh. I finished up at the insurance office then headed to the ER. Over the course of 5 hours I had an ekg, blood draw and chest x-rays. My toddler was a CHAMP throughout this whole thing. He slept or played the entire 5 hours! He even charmed a candy bar from a patient in the waiting room! All tests came back good. MAJOR relief. It seems that I have a musculo/skeletal issue. The doctor told me to try an ibuprofen if it happens again. This event scared the hell out of me. My dad died of a heart attack when I was only a year old. Granted, he had high bp, diabetes and heart disease. I have none of that. However, I am also very aware that heart attacks can happen to young folks too. This is why I run, watch my diet, etc. I don't want to leave my kids like my dad left me. I am completely exhausted but the pain finally went away last night. Today is mostly rest.

    Wow, what a scare! I'm glad all the tests came back negative. Nothing like thinking you're having a heart attack to make you remember why it's so important to take care of our health. Genetics play a part, but there's a lot we can do to reduce our risks. You should be proud of yourself for doing what you can! Keep up the good work! (and kudos to your toddler for behaving in the ER - not an easy task!)
