Scary situation!

Monday afternoon i was helping on the line making trays and all of a sudden i had to grab my chest. I was having massive spasms that went down my left arm. I did what i had to do and then i went home. Around 6:30 pm. I could not stand the pain anymore and went to E.R. pretty sure that i had a heart attack again.

My blood pressure when i arrived at the ER was 206 over 119, and never really went down although i was calm and just sitting. The pain in my arm was constant. But with the blood test and the stress test it confirmed that i had not had a heart attack. They say it was just because my blood pressure was out of control. So now i have to take one of my pills twice a day to keep it down. Ever since they did that my blood pressure is just fine.

The hospital stay was nice, my co-workers kept coming in to see how i was doing. My boss called me from her house!!! I was very touched, she said she was worried about me and wanted me to know it was ok if i wanted to take the rest of the week off, turns out that the doctors agreed to take the rest of the week off. I told her to stop taking away my work days..she laughed! I am going up there today for the meeting...I am dying to see who won the slogan and if it's me i want to take my bike I am hopeful that it's me!!

Amber only has a few more pills to take and then we will see if she breaks out anymore. Hopefully she won't.

We are suppose to go up north to see if my husband and son can get bambi this weekend.
I have a good feeling that they might!!

Ya'll take care!

Thank goodness it was blood pressure not a heart attack. Although blood pressure is very dangerous also. Take care of you my friend.

Caroline!!!! Very scary. I'm glad it wasn't a heart attack - but high BP isn't any better. Maybe some deep breathing exercises every morning will help.
