Prayers needed...

Today began as almost any normal day, until the telephone rang. It was Don, who earlier in the day complained to me of feeling some achiness in his left arm. He called because the pain was increasing and was now in both of his arms. I told him to get to our local hospitals ER or call 911 now! That's when the whirlwind began...

Upon arriving at the ER a few minutes later, blood work and a cardiac care unit had been established and everything in my world was whirling once again. As the test results becan pouring back in, so did the anxiety and that sinking in your gut that comes along with feeling that your legs have once again been knocked out from underneath you and you just cannot seem to stop and catch a breath. So far, Don's test results have been negative for any signs of cardiac stress, but the truth is it can take up to 8-12 before anything shows up. So, the decision was made to have him transported to Riverside Hospital in Columbus, Ohio where his cardiac surgeon is located and practices. We'd rather be safe than sorry. I'm leaving in just a few to make the trip. I won't have any access to the internet while I'm away, but if you could please find it in your heart to say a prayer for us, we'd both appreciate them greatly.
