Third time around

  1. Hello my friends. I don't know how to tell you this,but mom is in the hospital again,and my own stress caught up wit hme as well. Mom's BP bottomed out AGAIN. Her hemoglobin is in the toilet(9) She's anemic.(No shyt, really? I wouldn't have guessed Cau you believe this? I can't ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS IS THE SECOND TIME SH'E BEEN IN FOR THE SAME PROBLEM Plus the fact I had to get treatment last night myself. I doubled over in the ER WHILE SITTING WITH MY MOM with the most excruciating chest pain I've ever had. Told a security guard friend of mine to get a nurse. She got me undressed,in bed and on O2 faster than you could say ow. Anyway, They did 12 lead EKG,cardisc enzymes,and chest x-rays. ALL WERE NEGATIVE. Thank God! So that's one less thing to worry about. The nurse said something about my mom getting a colonoscopy for exploratory purposes. I am so numb right now I couldn't cry if I wanted to. Feel empty inside. Want nothing more than to sleep. Any advice as you know is VERY APPRECIATED. Ilove you guys so much. I only hope one day I can meet some of my earth angels. Warrior Woman.

    Please get some sleep ... I know it's hard when you're really really worried, but you won't be much help if you get sick yourself.

    I'm very very glad you're okay physically! Talk with some friends, talk with your priest or whoever ... get a 2nd opinion on your mom.....

    Just take care!

    Praying you have a very restful night, and your mother too. Glad to hear your test results were negative, so try to stop stressing and let go of what you have no control over. Make peace with it, and just REST tonight. Do some relaxation breathing, listen to some soothing music as you fall asleep, and grab a teddy bear to snuggle with. :kiss

    Theresa, so sorry that your Mom is having to go through all of this again. I'm sorry that you had the chest pain, but glad that you got yourself checked out-what a relief, that the ticker is okay! since I had the same thing last September and spent the night in the hospital, I'll tell you what I was told: Stressmakes us tighten the muscles in our backs. these muscle tighten and pull on the intracostal muscles, which then tighten, spasm, and hurt like 7734.
    Try to rest-take a hot bath, etc. Keep on keeping on!
