Updating.....

.....Just to let you know, nothing in this journal is toward anyone in specific.....I've had this journal since aol came out with them, and I use it to write my feelings, and about my illnesess,and inhopes it might help someone else as I do. And if you might take an entry that it is about you, I'm sorry but It isn't, it just may seem to coincide with your own life......


Sunday evening, my husband came in my bedroom and asked if he could lay down on my bed....he didn't look good at all. I told him of course and he didn't even have to ask! Then all of the sudden he was having major chest pains and could get his breath! :o( That happened a few times, then he wouldn't let me help him. :o( My best friend had called, and I told her what was happening and she brought over a nebulizer because he has asthma as well. He was out back on the deck and could move! :o( He still couldn't breath right! He used the nebulizer and it didn't help. We both were able to finally get him to go to the er! He is a very stubborn and hard headed person! I was up all night with him at the er....and they checked him out and said that he was ok! UH...Yea right! :o( His blood pressure was very high! They told him not to go to work the next day...but he did anyway. I was so worried about him being at work. I had a doctors appointment to go to, so I was up all night. Then I started getting chest pains again. I didn't tell anyone until they got worse. Since it was in the evening...I just went to bed. I had a hard time sleeping because of the pain. I had the cardiologist appointment....so I thought I'd wait until I seen him. My husband finally took yesterday off work, and he went with me. At first, he told me because of my age he wasn't going to run any tests on me....they did do an EKG and nothing showed up. So he was going on that until he started asking me questions. I told him about the one night, and of all the pain that I've been experiancing ever since. I explained what I felt that night. Then he changed his mind and I now am going to go through a echocardiogram and an induced stress test. What happened to me wasn't good. Everytime I have chest pains like that, it's making my heart weaker. Yikes! My tests are next Tuesday...he said he wanted them done as soon as possible. I'm ready for them now. I just wish my husband would have the same tests that I am. He's too stubborn. Then yesterday, my daughter's friend came for a visit. She lives in Pittsburg. Her boy friend and her baby came as well. :o) It was so nice to finally meet them. :o) My husband and I really liked them. :o) Next time I hope they can stay longer. :o) I took a lot of pictures while they were here. :o) We went to Applebee's for dinner. That was fun! By the time we got home...I was so beat! For the last 2 days, it's felt like I've been walking in hip deep water! My right leg is still pretty swollen. It was good to get out and do things! :o) I loved seeing my daughter so happy! :o) After she came back from taking them to the bus station....her ex boy friend calls her and upset her big time!!!! :o( This seems to be an everyday accurance, and myself...I'm really getting tired of the games being played!!!!! If it continues, I'll not answer the phone! And I mean it! I know she can't take anymore of this, and I sure can't either! It's ridiculous! Today all I have planned is to rest!!! :o) I really need it! :o) I'm still trying to make up the rest that I need. It hasn't been easy. I'm very worried about my husband and my daughter and grandson. Things are going to have to change around here......none of us needs this extra stress being brought on us! This is all for now. God bless you all! :o)

I agree....just because nothing showed up on the EKG at that time dosen't mean anything....from what my other doctor told me. And I'm glad to finally get the tests done. And for the extra stress.......I don't know how many times I've asked them to please stop, and it hasn't yet! I don't know what else to do about it. It gets my husband upset as well...because we see how this is affecting our grandson besides my daughter! But I guess the baby's father and some of his family members don't seem to care what they do or say, even though they know my condition....and now my husband! And to get him to the er on Sunday was like pulling teeth! If I call for an ambulance, he refuses the treatment! He is very stubborn. gggrrr!
