Unexpected trip

Well Sunday during church I started feeling light headed and then I started to hyperventilate. Tim barely got me to the back before I passed out. I ended up leaving in an ambulance as my BP and heartrate kept dropping. After several tests and lots of nausea the Dr. determined that my vagus nerve got over stimulated. The vagus nerve is a cranial nerve that controls your BP and heartrate. Apparently some people are more apt for this to happen and I am one of those people. I just have to be careful. The scary thing is that this happened all of a sudden. Thank God that I was at church and there were lots of people to take care of me. Hopefully nothing like this will happen again any time soon. Take care everyone and enjoy your cold Tuesday.

One more thing, a little friend of ours, is scheduled right now for a chest x-ray and ECG. Tomorrow at 11:30a.m. in Michigan, Luke is scheduled for his 3rd open heart surgery. He just turned 2 so this is very critical. He has a heart condition known as HLHS so please lift he and his mommy and daddy up in prayer. Kaleb and Luke are best buds!!!!!

I am glad that you are ok. That is scary. Thank goodness you were around people. What if it was just you and the boys? I always worry about that because you just never know what could happen. Be careful and take care of you.

Hope Luke does ok. Prayers to the family!
