Dear PA, May God be with you and DH and hold you both during this time of uncertainty. Praying in belief, I know he will be back home safe and well soon.

Good thing your computer is working and that you asked for help. I am so very very grateful that Barbara L told you to call the hospital. It really must have helped to put your mind at ease. (It is the 'little' things that really count). Just hearing someone give you information I am sure relieved you somewhat.

I will surely include you and your family in my prayers. Please keep in touch and let us know. Seems so long to hear results when person is worried. I too try to restrain myself thinking if I can just be positive. Hard to do especially when it is someone so very close to you. We are all here for you. May God give you His grace and strength. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, my gosh, you all are just wonderful! Thank you so much for all of your love and support. You'll never know how much it's meant!

DH is on his way home! After several hours of tests and re-tests, they told him he was OK to leave the hospital. They're 90% sure it wasn't a heart attack and were pleased with all of his blood work, x-rays, etc the last time around. They want him to get a stress test ASAP and a thorough follow-up with his doc. It sounds like they were very thorough and did as much as they could w/o admitting him for a couple days.

He said he feels better but not 100%. I hate the thought of him driving home after all of that, but when I suggested he just stay put and get a hotel room for the night he said he just really wanted to get home. I understand, and am glad in a way! He' should be home within the hour. Phew. What a day!

Hallelujah PA! I'm so glad he is OK. Go buy some of those 81mg aspirins and make him take one every morning. It won't hurt and it might help. Also, did they ultrasound him at all for gallstones? One of the things a gall bladder attack seems like is a heart attack. When Ken had his first one, we rushed him to the hospital fearing the worst. Thankfully it was only his gall bladder. I am praying you get results and peace soon.

Thats great news. Be sure to let him know he did the right thing by going to hospital right away. Thats reason so many men die from heart attacks is because they ignore the symptoms until its too late.
