24 yr olds dont have heart attacks!

Mood : Thankful

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.”
Psalm 31:1

Some of God's greatest gifts...

Theme song: Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks (yes I am in the .01% category of Africans that like country music, sue me)

So I was having one of those lazy days at work. The one where you have a whole bunch of crap to do and no motivation, so like any other 21st century young adult, I resorted to IM. I ended up in a conversation with my ex (what? He was the only one who would answer me; I guess everyone else needed to work) This was not just any ex, this was THE EX, the one you swore was the one until he took your heart, stomped on it and gave the pieces back to you.. anyhoo as I was saying we were having this conversation and the more we talked the more I realized how different we were and no it was not the opposites attract kind of different. It was the I really want to throttle you right now kind.

For some strange reason, I had a sudden flashback of how things ended with us. I remember praying and crying and asking God to fix us, needless to say that prayer went unanswered and judging by the fact that I am soo glad we are no longer together, I now definitely realize that my Father indeed had a plan.
and so I decided to make a list of all my unanswered prayers (I did say I was bored didn’t I?) and what do you know? EVERY single situation I could think of worked out eventually and for the better if I may add.

So the lesson for the day is whatever dire situation you seem to find yourself in today will definitely work out, God has a plan.


In other news, tomorrow I am having oral surgery to have my wisdom teeth taken out, I really don’t know what to expect since I have heard so many conflicting stories, some say little or no pain other say mucho pain, please pray for me that I fall into the little or no pain category.

And we know that in all things
God works for the good of those who love him,
who have been called according to his purpose.
Romans 8 :28
