It started out like any other regular Monday except that I was groggy from all the pain meds from the oral surgery, I finally made it to work when right around lunch time I started feeling this real weird ache in my chest along with shortness of breath, I ended up calling the doctor who informed me that a visit to the ER was advisable. Say what???
Now I have seen every episode of Grey’s Anatomy so when I think ER I imagine blood and chaos and people shouting, so yea I went into full panic mode, and did I mention that none of my friends and family live close by?
I eventually went, 4 hours and an EKG and X-ray and blood and urine tests later, the “cause of my pain is unclear”
The Doctor did say I was too young to have a heart attack and they tested me for blood clots and I didn’t have that so I just need to go see a specialist but there is no life threatening situation.
The funny thing is the closest I have ever been to a hospital was for employment drug screening. Imagine how I felt in the ugly gown and wrist name tag and Iv tubes sticking in me.
So really if you haven’t had cause to visit a hospital in the past 24 hours, take some time to be thankful because good health is indeed a privilege.
I WILL bless the Lord at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
