I’m sorry to put urgent in the subject, but it really is to me.
Tonight around 9:30, my mom reported to me that her chest felt really heavy, and she was feeling some pain in her left shoulder, and having some trouble breathing.
I convinced her that she should get it checked out, though she was reluctant since it didn’t seem that bad.
Well the long and the short of it is, apparently she has unstable angina. They were afraid it was a minor heart attack, but the blood results returned negative for all the tests, so it is not that.
How they explained it, it did not sound very bad. They said it was that a blood vessel is not letting enough blood flow to the heart, but as long as they catch it early, it will be OK. They said it’s like a warning, that she has to stop smoking and such.
Well I came home and read up on it, and it doesn’t sound good at all. I found this page about it, and it sounds really bad to me, though I don’t understand all the medical terms. I thank God that we went to the hospital though.
Please, please pray for her. I’ve been praying all night. She’s only 54, and I love her more than anyone in the world. They assured me it’d be OK, but I’m so worried. they are keeping her for at least 24 hours to observe her and have her see a cartiologist in the morning hopefully.
I can’t say much more because I need to hold myself together, or I’ll just fall apart.
I would be so so very grateful for your prayers though. Thank you.
