Heart Of The Matter

Sorry I have been MIA this week....

Monday evening I'm driving home from work and I start getting minor pains in my chest. 

They are minor so I figure it will go away in a minute. I go to the barn and let the horses out.

The chest pains are getting worse. I go to the house and take an aspirin. 

Few hours later I am still hurting and now the pain is in my chest, my shoulder and my arm. 

My mom takes me to the emergency room where I am poked and prodded. We arrive a little before midnight and between midnight and 6 a.m. I have blood test done, an ekg, x-rays and a ct-scan.

Not to mention a shot in the rear-end and a nurse trying to get an IV in my arm unsuccessfully and instead using it as a pin cushion. 

The end result is that I have an inflammation in my chest..... Not real sure what that means.... but basically it hurts to breath, hurts to move, hurts to sit still----- so basically just hurts!!!

I was given some anti-inflammatory medicine and pain medicine and sent on my way. 

So far feeling a little better but not sure what caused it in the first place......

Taking a few days to rest, be back soon.

Take care chica-I was thinking the same as Phoebe, I wonder if it's stress. Either way get your R&R and we'll talk to you soon.
