We were up at 04:30AM and Donna was out the door at 05:30AM heading for the truck company. I went in the kitchen to do some blogging, and wait for Nicole to get up as I was going to drive her to school today. About 06:00AM My son came running into the kitchen and said you got to go to Lake St Louis Hospital something's happened to Mom and she said that’s where she is going. As I left the driveway I decided to try and get her on her cell phone, when she answered she said she couldn’t breath and had pain in her arm and was on the JJ’s Restaurant parking lot. I asked her if she had called 911 and she said no, so since I was a block away I rushed over there, and picked her up and drove her the 2 miles to St Joseph’s Hospital. She really looked bad when we got there, no color and gasping and tremors like when your going shocky. To be quite honest even an old cop veteran like me it scared the hell out of me just looking at her.
They took her into the E.R. and took a ton of blood and then it was off to x-ray, and than more tests, Then finally about 11AM the doctor came in and said they had pretty well ruled out a heart attack or heart episode, she has 5 stents from a couple years ago. But they were going to do one more blood test to compare with the one they took when she first came in in the morning. When that came back okay, he said the breathing problem was part her CPOD and stress related and plus she had not had a good nights rest in three nights and was sleep deprived.
About noon she was allowed to go home with a prescription and orders to go to bed and get some rest.
I am still breathing hard, My worst fear is something will happen to prevent us from our dream of full timing, so you can see how that made me feel this morning.
Anyway I know it sounds selfish of me but I just wish there was someway to get her to slow down a little.
Hopefully a couple days of good rest and she will be back to normal. I will probably need a couple of High Life Lights to return to normal.
Hope everyone has a better day. Be safe out there..
Sam & Donna.
