I was lying on the couch, perfectly content watching the Wizards of Waverly Place movie.
Then my chest started feeling heavy, like a thousand pound schnauzer sat on it. My heart felt like it was racing in the indy 500 and I felt like I had killer heartburn, palms got a little sweaty.
I thought "huh? I'm not feeling so good...I wonder..."
I went down to the computer and typed in Heart attack symptoms.
I had the majority on the list.
I went up stairs and started crying. Rob asked what was wrong.
I said I think I'm having a heart attack.
He called 911.
The next thing I asked was "Their are not coming with the sirens on are they?"
Now I felt heart attackISH and embarrassed.
They came and checked me out, said everything looks okay, but if I wanted they'd take me in.
They had me laughing, do heart attack patients laugh during a crisis?
Since being put on high blood pressure meds this spring things really freak me out. Little things, like I notice my heart racing every time I lie down. Some days I feel heaviness in my chest, some days I feel dizzy and lightheaded throughout. But I've never felt all those things at once like I did tonight. I was so afraid of looking stupid, I almost didn't let Rob make the call.
He went for the phone when I went for the tissues...
I still have all those symptoms, but having an on the spot EKG that says I'm 97% ...well, I'll take it. I plan on calling my doctor first thing Monday morning. But for now will y'all pray for me. I really need some peace...
I'll leave you with the words of my son:
"I see sirens! I hear sirens! They are coming down the street! They are coming...to OUR house?!
Daddy why is the police heres?"
Mommy's not feeling good.
But hopefully Mommy will feel better tomorrow.
