I had been feeling poorly Thursday, then Friday hit and I was having chest pains. I thought it might be panic because panic makes you feel like your chest hurts and/or you're having a heart attack. I took an aspirin. I took some Pepto in case it was indigestion. Neither helped.
Then I started having pain going down my arm and thought big time UH OH! I told Mr. Skittles we had to leave for the hospital NOW. And we did.
I had an EKG (standard procedure) and an x-ray (also standard procedure). They saw something but weren't sure what so they transported me to a bigger hospital by ambulance for further testing.
At the new hospital I had the stress test. Again they thought they saw something and had me have the ultrasound of my heart. It was after this that they decided to admit me. I was sent to a room in ICU.
Monday morning was the heart cath. Nothing was found there, so I waited most of the day for my discharge papers to be sent up and after they were Mr. Skittles brought me home. I have a new prescription for angina.
Anyone who's ever been in the hospital knows that they never let you sleep, so I have a lot to catch up on. I'm a little bit sore, too.
And that's what happened. I realized the last post was kind of short and vague.
