My father-in-law has been complaining with chest pains for a while. He went to the ER Monday morning and was sent home with a prescription for Prilosec to treat some refluxy/heartburn something. He followed up with his regular doctor the following day and was told the same thing! His doctor also thought it was a gastro thing, but said he could see his heart doctor in a week. Well, Thursday morning we ended up in the Shreveport ER with continuing chest pains. THANK GOODNESS-they admitted him and did a heart cath yesterday. There was some blockage (90%). With a brand spanking new stint, he will be home today!
I think Jason is a LOT like his dad. If he complains, you better call an ambulance. For these two men to finally say something is wrong, I feel like it is usually pretty serious. I was completely frustrated with two sets of physicians to send him home and dismiss as heartburn. It was such a relief for everyone to have some answers and to see him feeling better. All of this reminds me of where we were last year--preparing for Jason's surgery. He had a condition in his legs that would require a 2 inch cut on each leg and a slice to the muscle sheath inside each calf. The 2 inch cuts ended up being more like 6! The 6 inch cuts ended up getting infected....! A lot has happened in the last year, but I am glad we made it over that hurdle. Happy 4th of July!! We are headed to the lake for the rest of the day with family for grilling, tubing, and fireworks.
