...And Then It Got REAL...

Two nights ago, Mike started having chest pains and light headedness. Yesterday, he woke my from my nap to tell me that he thought we should go to the emergency room because he thought he might be having a heart attack.

Life is standing still right now.

We went to American Fork Hospital emergency room. They immediately took him in to triage to get his vitals. His blood pressure was so high they thought it was wrong. It was not. They retested him and retested him and still it stayed dangerously high.

They rushed him back to get an EKG and after the test, they hooked him up to more machines and wires and IV's and medications. After hours of tests and XRAYS, they finally told him the news. No indication of a heart attack thank heavens, but dangerously high blood pressure and his general health is bad. He's been put on meds and sent to see a specialist next week.

Life is scary. Things get so scary. Stress is really bad on your health.

I'm just so grateful to have him here. These things hit home and make you cling to each other.

Today he slid close to me in the kitchen to plant a sweet kiss on my lips, and it was all I could do to not cry. I love this  man. His 33rd birthday is next week. I need a billion more birthdays with him. I need them so much you can't even imagine.
