Not Well

I post everyday but the weekend. So, I thought that for those readers that have figured that out, I had better post today, so you will not think something may be wrong.

Well, something is wrong. So, this is just a quick post to let you know what is up and to ask for prayer for myself.

Last night at my community meeting I had to go to the Emergency room. My chest went into so much pain that I could not endure it any longer. I did not think I was having a heart attack but, did think that I may have fluid on my heart. I took an aspirin, just in case and was already on Darvocet.

At the hospital, I was given some narcotic I had never heard of before, that took care of the pain for a very short while. Mean while, they ran their test and they all came back good. The doctor said that I need to see my Internist today, because if it is fluid, it was to soon for that to show up on the x-ray. But, I doubt that it is fluid now, because when this E.R. doctor touched my rib, in the area that hurt, I about screamed in pain.

I believe, at this point, that the Lupus has caused my ligaments and tendons in my ribs to swell and create unbelievable pain. I will see the doctor today to make sure. I am very loaded down with pain medication right now and am unable to post from my spirit.

If you think you me, will you pray.

Thank you for praying for me last week, I'm doing better each day. The dr. says I can't do any housework for 6 weeks (I'm trying to listen).
