Looking for our Wish Lists? Here they are.

It is 1 am Friday and R is in the hospital. He had severe chest pains for 3 hours and decided to go into ER at 5pm (Thursday). They did a couple EKGs, took blood several times, did an exray, hooked him up to the heart monitor, used nitro on him, gave him asprin and torodol. They pretty much stopped about 11pm, but they are keeping him overnight to "monitor him for a heart attack". I have to go back up at 7am and take him stuff to do a stress test. They said everything they've done so far, checking the heart, is normal except for a "blip on the EKG", which they said is actually pretty normal. If the stress test is normal, he can come home tomorrow and follow up with base medical next week. They only checked for heart related things and if it is not that, then they will check for things related to the lung, the ribs, the muscle and reflux.

Thanks to Kallie, whose husband just deployed and was going to take me to a Kenny Chesney concert tonight but instead dropped me off at the hospital and turned right around and picked up the girls (mine and hers) from the sitter and took them home. I just called her (at midnight) and told her I needed her to watch her all day tomorrow and she said sure and is keeping her overnight. So at 1am, I just left her house, leaving her more clothes, formula and diapers. Thanks Kallie! You're literally a lifesaver!
