This past week I had been having pain in my heart. It was happening about one time a day. I tried to put it out of my mind. Today, that terrible pain happened 6 times. I honestly thought I would die. I was so convinced of this, that I told Ben what to do and how to call 911 if he ever found me & I couldn't respond (I left my fears and emotion and details out of it). My mother ended up taking me to the ER. After 3 hours and several tests later, the doctors were very confident that my heart was in great condition. They did tests that showed I have no blood clots, that I am not at risk for a heart attack etc. They don't know why I've been having heart palpitations.
Tonight, I am grateful for modern technology. I am grateful I was able to be seen by a qualified doctor, who could perform the necessary tests to determine that my heart was strong. I am grateful that I am healthy, and that I can continue to be a mother to my children, wife, daughter, sister and friend. For tonight, I thought it might be the end of my life. I am very thankful.
