Aaron's Hospital Stay

I love my husband more now than the day I married him. I thank the Lord for him everyday. He works so hard to provide for us and care for us. The kids and I need him. It is eye opening and nothing less than terrifying when he is only 30 and spending the night in the hospital to have his heart checked out. This weekend Aaron just didn't feel well at all. He was having terrible headaches. Then by Monday morning he was experiencing some chest pains. He went into the emergency room early that afternoon. His blood pressure was high, and he normally has fine blood pressure. They did several blood tests, heart monitoring, x-rays, etc... His dad and grandfather both had early heart problems. I am pretty sure Aaron said his dad's first heart attack was at age 39. Therefore, with the family history the hospital was taken extra precautions. He was admitted for the night. The next morning he had to take a stress test. This was the one that lasts about three hours. He had to run and get his heart rate up to certain levels. He had a dye put through his body to see if there were any blocked arteries. They also took several pictures of his heart and arteries. All of those tests came back good. Praise the Lord he was not having any heart problems. We are relieved and so thankful. He was released Tuesday around 4:00p.m. All said and done, we still are not sure what is going on with him. He has to follow up with the doctor. He has to check out his gall bladder. According to the doc it can sometimes feel like heart and chest pain. The pics are of the kids waiting on Tuesday for Daddy to be released. We waited a long time for the test results so we entertained ourselves with Old Maid, Go Fish, and Crazy Eights. Justus got tired of the few toys in the diaper bag, so I just let him have my purse. He loved that. There are all kinds of goodies in there. There are a couple of more pics below.

Happy Birthday Corey!!

Oh, that sounds scary. We'll be praying for him to feel better.
