Baby Shower and a Trip to the Emergency Room

These are the only photos I took at the baby shower. The top one is of my nephew David and my niece Nicole. He is not the nephew who is having the baby and the bottom photo is of my sister in law Karen and her boyfriend Doug. Really all I took is about two photos, me the queen of taking pictures. You can't tell from the photos but there had to be fifty people in my house. I think most of them were gone by the time I took these.
But right after the shower my son-in-law and I took my sweetie to the hospital. He was having chest pains and numbness down his left arm during the whole shower and I knew he was in some pain. He had been having the numbness on and off for a few weeks and just didn't want to worry anyone. We made him go to the hospital. He kept saying he didn't want to go and so on, but I lost my mother and brother to heart attacks and wasn't taking any chances. Anyway, they gave him all kinds of tests and he passed with flying colors. It turns out he either pulled a muscle in his chest or it could be acid reflux or a combo of both and they think he has a pinched nerve in his neck that radiates down his arm. They don't fool around with a male over 50 that has any kind of chest pain. My sweetie lifts weights alot so the doctors think he over did something and they want him to see our regular doctor and get a stress test, mainly because of the family history of heart disease and he might need physical therapy for the neck issue. Either way I am thanking God tonight for taking care of us.

Whew! I was worried until I could quickly scan through your post. Thank you Lord that he's okay.

Oh, Joan, it was sad to hear about your sweetie. I will pray for both of you. It was very good that he came to the hospital, and good to hear that he will be watched further.
And it is very good to know that the Lord takes care of you.
God bless you!

OH MY! So glad everything is OK. How incredibly scary!

Wow that's scary. My DH was having some troubles similar and they found the acid reflux thing. You're right at this age they do get especially concerned. Glad all is well though and the shower went fine. Your decorations, food and favors look great.

Thank God all is well! I know you must have been terrified. The older we get, the more we have these "flashes" of our mortality (and, even more frightening, the mortality of those we love!) I'm very happy that the diagnosis was a pulled muscle/pinched nerve. Painful, yes. But much, much better than the alternative.

Me too. Why are our husbands so hard to deal with when it comes to going to the doctor? I'm glad he had the problem checked out and hope they can get a handle on the pain.


PHEW i am soooo glad your lovely hubby is ok. You must have been so scared. Glad he got the all clear and it was nothing serious.

Take Care chickie
