Right now, I am

making dinner and listening to Brad conduct business from our couch. Somethings never change with a work-a-holic for a husband, but atleast we are at home. He has a follow-up appointment with his regular doctor and according to the Cardiologist, he is in great Cardiac health. Now we just need to figure out why he is having these pains...

Thank you all again for everything. I love you all bunches and bunches...

Yeah! He Should Be Heading Home Soon!!!

The nurse just popped her head into our little curtained off space and said that the test results came back and everything looks good. She just needs to do the necessary paperwork and then he is free to go home!

Not sure what the next step is, but as of right now he has a previously scheduled appointment with our primary doctor. And I am also going to make an appointment for him to visit the Cardiologist...because we still do not know why he had the problem to begin with.

Thank you all for the wonderful comments, e-mails, phone calls, and most especially the prayers.

Morning Update On Mr. O'Kara

Well, we just saw the Nurse Practitioner for the Cardiology Group and she is scheduling a Cardiac Cat-Scan for my husband. The test is suppose to let them know if he has any blockages. If all goes well, then hopefully he will be out of here around 5 or 6 pm.

His EKG results came back showing that his heart is doing well and the blood tests are also indicating that he has not / is not having a heart attack. This is great news.

Not sure if he will still have to take a Cardiac Stress test at this time, but if that does happen, then he will be admitted and that procedure will take about 2-days.

As of right now, the official status is that he is being monitored for 24 hours and has not been admitted.

And just between all of us in Blogworld...he is none too happy that he is still being "kept" at the hospital!

Thank you all so much for the comments and prayers. They really mean alot...

Please Pray For My Husband

I am typing this from the Cardiac Observation Unit at our local hospital where my husband is being monitored for chest pains. He has been having some (as he says) "heavy" feelings in his chest for a couple days and was finally convinced to have it checked out today. We will know more in the morning after he is seen by a Cardiologist.

Until then could you say some prayers for him? He is the Keeper of My Heart and I don't know what I would do if something where to happen to him...
