NOTE ~ :love: ANGIE :love: is fine.

I spent most of last evening in the emergency ward of the hospital.

I got home from work and was surprised to see Angie's car in the garage, thought she had :yoga: yoga.

As I grabbed a beer I asked her "What's up?"....she just says she wasn't feeling well. She does have acid reflux and allergies that will flare up from time to time, I assume it is one of those and begin to post on 3FC after checking my e-mail and stuff.

I visit with her as she sits behind me in one of the recliners and chit-chat about me getting her some chicken noodle soup out of the garage if she wants, etc.

Nah she says....I think I may have you take me to emergency....this she tells me as I was almost finished with my second beer....:yikes:

Seems she was having symptoms of a :val1: heart attack...had checked symptoms out online...a history of it in her family....heart issues.

I'm like..".what the heck....why didn't you wait until I drank a 6-pack...what's the matter with you woman!" :mad:

She says..."it's the denial thing" as I am running around the house, closing up and she is getting the dogs their dinner...I am throwing off my dirty drywall clothes around the house as I "calmly ;)"...tell her "I'm gonna kill you!" for waiting on this :mad:

Being a woman of course, she is telling me how this can't be happening to her, she eats right, exercises...:blah::blah::blah:

Now the emergency ward is about 12 miles from our house....giving me time to tell her if she goes down in the car I'll pull over and give CPR a shot and mouth to mouth...but I will do it "french"....she just :lol:

I do know how to cheer :cheer3: her up ;)

Leaving out all the boring details.....they rush her back...run an ekg on her then bring her to me in the waiting room. She tries to tell me what was going on and it may be a while....I tell her no problem :love: babe :love: the LAKERS come on in an hour....much easier sitting through this with a big screen HD TV :carrot: with sports on one wall and another TV showing Nemo on another wall...where all the kids are at ;)

Nurse comes over to us and says..."The ekg is not normal...we are getting you a room".....a few minutes later they take her back....settling in for what looks like a looooong evening...I find a good position and seat for the game....actually spend a few minutes chatting with a kid that had taken an elbow to his head :stars: in a basketball game....needed stitches and I find out he is a good friend of my nephew (married to my niece) and they both graduated from the fire academy together last week...I knew, of course my nephew had.....anyway....the game was coming on....got my coffee from the cafeteria....ready to roll.....

A few minutes later a nurse comes out and says "Mr.....?" and I say yep...she says "are the LAKERS on?"...I say "not yet"....she says...."well, your wife says to tell you that you can come back if the LAKER game isn't on....he won't want to if it is"

Are you kidding me?....what did she think I would do? :shrug:

I sent the next 4 hours in an uncomfortable chair...no TV... with my wife in a hospital bed next to me.

Which gave me time to get the guts up to ask her, if she was a goner, would it be all right to hook-up with the blonde gal that was hitting on me in the waiting room?....she says what gal....I describe her...:love: ANGIE :love: says..."you idiot :twirly: She wasn't hitting on you... she is the hospital ambassador....she has to be nice to you!"

After several tests they ruled out a heart attack :)

I missed the entire game :mad:..;)

Life goes on :)

Glad Ang is OK. Bet that was scary!!! She actually reported pretty early for a woman. Normally, women don't even really realize it till they come to in the hospital(if they come to). GOOD JOB ANGIE!!!:bravo: And, hugs for both of you!:hug:

BIG BIRD...I blew it...I thought the DODGERS were off until today...they lost anyway. I mentioned 911 but she said "NO WAY!...I have been like this all day...I'll be fine"...one thing I know...I don't back talk my wife...or make suggestions when she is "in the mood" ;)

Angie read the thread after dinner...her response..."Only you could make my heart attack scare a 3FC Thread"...I asked her....WHAT isn't true?"...she says..."well it is all true but....ah...never mind...but do you really think they care?"

Glad it wasn't a heart attack, hope they figure out what's going on Monday! :)

Me too...still the same symptoms tonight but w/o the stress!

I think she is fine BARGOO....thank-you :hug:...we should find out Monday. My wife is a good sport for my humor...she just ignores me ;) But seriously and I mean it too...I don't go through life just making people laugh....that would be my nephew! I do have funny one liners from time to time...but I think you would be surprised to talk to me in person.

Ok.I have to chime in here.Lakers??Boo!!Sorry Gary but I cant forgive Kobe, even though I am not married to him and obviously his wife has forgave him (Maybe I would too with a 10 K diamond).I have never denied his gift as an athlete.Just cant see through the other stuff.Sorry:(.But I adore Karl Malone and Phil Jackson(loved his books!!).So since my Celtics wont be making the finals, I do hope the best team wins...even if it included KOBE!!Hope you lovely wife is feeling better.Glad she was checked out.Cardiac pain is so hard to determine sometimes.Mimics other symptoms.Take care. Is she have a stress test??

EZMONEY
04-29-2009, 11:18 PM
Angie says no stress test...but she sees our doctor on Monday...heart issues seem to have been ruled out at the hospital...for now. She is fine...did two classes teaching yoga, after work, tonight at church.

Kobe made a big mistake...but, although I never will forget what a jerk he was, I think he has done about all he can do pay for the mistake. He is a great player...I am still p.o. that he and Shaq didn't make it work for a few more years.

If anyone else disses his Lakers we might have Angie on here sharing her version of Gary in the hospital with chest pain thread. Mind you as a Canadian who lives close to Toronto I must screem my cheers for the RAPTORS! Actually we dont follow them at home either! HA to much NHL and MLB for us. NBA just gets in the way! LOL

Gary, I am so glad that Angie's ok! And, you are so funny, too;). Praying they get to the bottom of the issue (have they wondered about gall bladder? When mine went bad, it would hurt all over my chest-thought I was having a heart attack then). And, tell Angie that of course, we all care about her. She's become part of the family just like you are! :hug: for you both!
