Compared to some of the other tragedies we've been
hearing about here the past few weeks, this doesn't
seem like much. It has me scared, though, and I'd like
My mom (49) has been complaining of a chest cold for
about a week. She complains that it just hurts to
breathe, and she needs to cough but it won't come.
She called the doctor yesterday to make an appt., and
luckily they had a cancellation. By the time she got
to the dr.'s office, she had swollen glands, was dizzy,
and her right arm hurt. Without even looking at her, the
dr sent her right to the hospital, with a nurse following
her. They were keeping her on heart monitors all night,
and then were hoping to do stress tests and the
treadmill thing and everything today.
She has vertigo problems, which could explain the
dizziness. And if she does have a chest cold, that could
explain the swollen glands. But there is a bad history
of heart disease in her family, so of course that makes
us worry even more.
I've done a lot of praying, and I know that she's caught
this early (no matter what it is), but I'm still scared.
I'd really appreciate your prayers!!
Thanks so much!
