a cute what !! ?? ~

All joking aside ...
It's not a funny thing.

Angina ...  A heart condition marked by paroxysms of chest pain due to reduced oxygen to the heart

Last night after the birthday party and a riveting game watching of the Packers vs Cowboys ... the kids all left for the night ... I was getting ready for bed ... and it hit me.  Taking  Nitro tabs didn't do the trick this time around. 

I ended up spending 4 hours in the Emergency Room ...  then transferred down to the Intensive Care Unit until 7:00 tonight to calm things down.

It was horrible.

BUT ...

I'm feeling better now and that's all that matters  :)  Happy dance ... happy dance.

Until next time...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.


  1. No, not cute, at all. But good that you're home and doing OK. Please be careful with you. Hugs.

  2. The dancing aligator is cute but what you went thru is not. We are thinking of you and you are in our prayers. I hope you too can dance like the aligator. Love you Mel of course it should go without saying, take care of yourself.
    Love from Mississippi

  3. Great news that you are home
    again Mel.
    Next time don't get so excited
    that the Packs are whoopin'
    southern a__!
    Stay calm and well.
    Love ya much, me

  4. I didn't realize you had a heart issue. Take care of yourself and I'm sure you do all the things you are supposed to do.

  5. So good hearing YOU answer the phone this morning. We'll see you Thursday afternoon or evening.
    'hugs from afar' and yes Lil' Sis I'll give her a hug from you too

  6. I'm so sorry Mel..but.I'm glad that you are home and doing ok. Please take it easy, but I know how these things go and sometimes we have no control over what happens.

  7. Take good care of yourself, a lot of people care about you.

  8. I hope you do not have to go through that again. I don't have angina but my second husband did and nito did not do much good. He died at 37 but he was functioning on half a heart. I just get really winded and weak but I think I am doing somuchbetter since heput me on that really expensive med. You take care Mel!!!

  9. Good to hear you're doing better, Mel. The hospital is a terrible place to be when you're ill. How do they expect you to get better when they keep bugging you and waking you up?

  10. Good gravy & biscuits that is wayyyy toooooo scary! I am so grateful to read you are doing much much better & I pray your health continues to improve!

    I have missed visiting with you . . . did a quick scan & loved it ALL . . . like coming home :o)

    Know you are ALWAYS in My Prayers, Well Wishes & Warmest of Warm Thoughts . . .

    ~ May you ALWAYS be Blessed & may you ALWAYS Bless others ~
