Grandpa GG

I found out this morning that my grandpa has been admitted to the hospital. He has had some heart issues in the past and gave us a scare a few months back when he went to the hospital with symptoms that felt to him like a heart attack. They ran tests on his heart and concluded that it wasn't a heart attack but I don't think they ever offered a concrete explanation towards his symptoms. Last night, I guess he experienced the same thing...and so he had his neighbor take him in. We went to visit him after our gymnastics class this morning and he seems to be doing a lot better...not experiencing the pain that he was last night. They are supposed to do an EKG today and while we were there visiting...one of the doctors informed him that he wanted grandpa to stay there over night because he thinks it might be something different than what they previously thought it to be. I am not sure of the details because I had to leave in a hurry with a very tired toddler and sleeping baby...but I just wanted to write a quick post and share this with the small community of people who visit us here...just a short note of limited information...but nevertheless, he can be lifted up in prayer and sent good energy through collective thoughts and love.

Jess, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your grandfather. Thank you for the update. Let us know if there is anything that you need or we can do for you.

It must have worked because they actually released him from the hospital today. :) Changed some of his meds, and he is to go back to his heart doctor on Tuesday for some stress tests. The Dr. thought there might be some scar tissue around his heart where his surgeries had been done in the past that were constricting blood vessels in the area causing him heart pain. They're going to be evaluating this further. So glad he's doing good today. :) I barely caught a flash of you Jess as you left, so..."Hi!" :)

Thanks Jessie for your kind words about me that caused others to respond with like kind thoughts and expressions. As you know now I return to the dr on Tuesday for a nuclear stress test and then on Friday for a vascular test on my legs. They ruled out a heart attack and one dr. did not think it was acid reflux so I am mystified as to what it is and I hope these tests will clarify the situation. Thanks too, honey, for the photo you posted. I like it. I enjoyed your visit to the hospital with Asher and Journey and it cheered me up to have those little tykes and you come to see me. Love you all, GG
