Prayers please....

DH is out of town for work today and he just called awhile ago to tell me he was driving himself to the local hospital because he's having really bad chest pain and tingling and numbness on the one side of his jaw, shoulder and arm. He said he'd keep me posted but I haven't heard back and he didn't pick up his cell when I tried it just now.

It's bad enough to have something like this happen when you're home but a heck of a lot worse when you're 3 hours away and not around anything or anyone familiar. I told him dd and I would pack up and head up to where he is, but he said to sit tight for now and try not to worry (yeah, right!).

Sorry I've been spotty around here lately, the computer's been on the fritz yet again, and now this...I'll check in when I can.

Thanks, friends. It's always good to know you're here!

PA, I don't want to scare you any more than you are, but if you still haven't heard from your husband call the hospital. I'm praying for him right now.

Dear Lord, I pray right now for this lady's husband. I pray You put him in Your Mighty Arms and comfort him and soothe him. I pray You are the doctor and assist the ones working on his behalf. I pray Your will be done in this familys life Lord and that this will be over without incident. I pray for the family to seek Your wisdom as we are all doing here. In Your Precious Name I pray, Amen.

Thank you, everyone! Your prayers and support help so much! Barbara, thanks for the idea of calling the hospital directly. They were so nice and helpful! When I called, they were drawing blood and said they'd have DH call me back (I took that as a good sign). He said they're running all sorts of tests to see if it's cardio or GI or what, but that the pain's diminished and he's feeling a bit better. He said for us to stay put and that he'll let me know as soon as he knows anything.

So of course I'll still worry but it sounds like he's getting good care.
