Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Well,...I'm fine, and not really in need of fuss, but I have been in the hospital for a couple of days. suddenly, in the evening, I had rather intense aching all over chest, neck, upper back, and shoulder. Not extreme pain, but spooky. Soon got a little chills and tremors. Scooted to the emergency ward, just a couple of miles. They soon determined I wasn't having a heart attack. They found quite a bit of excess fluid around the heart, but not enough to do damage or interfere with the heart function. I actually felt perfectly fine by the following noon. They are kicking me out by the end of the day, on medication, to see a cardiologist in one week for another echocardiogram. Worst case, they drill for fluid.
The painful part, we would be in the air right now, on our way to St.Barts for our 30th wedding anniversary. But I already have revised reservations to try again in April. Gotta do other
things right now.
