All Is Well

My daughter called me Thursday evening complaining of horrible chest pains......well you know my Mama Bird Protection kicked right in......I insisted she call 911. She's 40, and heart problems are unlikely for someone her age.....and she doesn't have a family history, but scary all the same.

Now, she's a single girl and has been on a quest to find a nice, kind fireman for a LONG time.... since high school actually. :-) She's one hilarious chickie, I must say. She was sooooo embarrassed, but because I insisted, she called. That wasn't exactly how she was hoping to be introduced, so to speak.

Her blood pressure was, I mean H.I.G.H! 260/100. Now, I have no idea if it was because her living room was filled with good looking men...... no, she's been having a problem with it for awhile, but said BP meds were for old people. She is SO stubborn.

Well, after a night in the hospital and lots of blood work and a fancy stress test she's home and all is well. So, that's what I've been up to for the past few days.... hanging around the hospital, just being with her.

She IS on medication for that blood pressure now... and calling herself granny.

I am so thankful. God is so good. Thanking Him for his protection.

Update on the testing..... for Moi.

Colonoscopy was, that's a picnic I don't want to attend again anytime soon.

The CT scan was also negative.

Which means I still have no answers.

I'll be meeting with the surgeon on Tuesday..... waiting to see what he thinks the next step will be.

Thanks so much your concern and sweet comments. If it rains it pours......and hey, we live in Washington.......that's just the way it is.

Just praising God today.

He is still in control.

And, I am grateful.
