Well, That Was Not Fun

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.
