Prayer request

Hello dear readers,

Yesterday I was admitted to hospital with some symptoms consistent with heart attack in women. Fortunately, it seems to have been a false alarm but they insisted on keeping me overnight for a variety of tests.

Just wanted to let you know what's going on. Don't worry. Nothing appears to be dire. But it is a little wake up call and I'll get to find out what my cardiac status really is.

I'll get back to blogging soon!

Love to you all,
Ellie

  1. Ellie, I'm so glad you're okay. After seeing requests to pray for you on MP's and Mimi's blogs, I was worried. Thank you for letting us know how you are.

  2. Thanks so much, Jan.

    I'm home now and so glad to be here.

    Everything checked out normal. Apparently my neck and jaw pain was referred pain from my back injury. At least that's the only explanation anyone can come up with.

    I'm very glad to get the reassurance and the admitting doctor assured me that I did exactly the right thing by getting to the emergency room.

    I really, really appreciate the prayers.

  10. oh my goodness ellie! i feel so out of the loop lately - i was clueless as to what was happening in your life....i'm glad you went to the hospital - so often we ignore or play down our symptoms - (well i do)...you made a terrific choice. so glad you're home safe and sound and in your own bed :)

    love you,

  11. Not to worry, Roberta. It actually was all over very quickly. I was in the hospital just about 24 hours total.

    Love you too!

  12. These little "wake up calls" can be a blessing, reminding us of the fragile, wonderous beauty of life...and of all we have to be grateful for. Glad you are home again, and feeling okay.

    In His Love...
