Prayers Please

My brother just called & told me that he had to take my mom to the hospital today with really sharp chest pains. She's had asthmatic bronchitis for the past couple of weeks . The doc did an EKG & some blood tests & doesn't think it's her heart but to be on the safe side he's calling in a cardiologist. It sucks being 2 hours away from my parents, my dad & brother both said not to come up there until they know more, but I can't stand just sitting here!

Crewsk,
do what they said and wait for them to call. I know it's hard, in fact it makes you wild but you can't do anything that is for the doctor..If your mom needs you then go to her. I know you love her but just think how she would feel if you or one of the kids got hurt in trying to get to her..Just take your time...In the mean time, you have my good thoughts and as many prayers as you and mom need.

Thanks kadesma! I'm trying my hardest to hold it together until hubby gets home from work. I also know that if I showed up right now she'd be happy to see me, but she'd also chew me out for worrying.

I agree. Hold tight for now and try to do something that will help take your mind off things. Something as simple as baking cookies with your children might help.

Whatever you need, just call on us here at DC. You know we're always here.

Thanks Buck, LC, Katie, & Andy! I did get supper started & the dishwasher loaded. I'm headed now to make TC & Savannah's beds.
