My Sister

So, I took an unexpected trip to Indianapolis last night. My brother-in-law called and said that the ambulance was taking my oldest sister, Sharon, to St.Vincent Heart Center. They were not sure what was up, but something was definitely not right. Her heart rate was up to 180-200 beats a minute. She hates to swallow pills and when they gave her one to take her heart rate went up to 180!

Anyway, my Pastor and his wife so lovingly took me down there. We found out that they were going to do a scope this morning and so we got a couple hotel rooms and stayed overnight.
They did the scope around 11 this morning and while doing it, my sister coughed and it sent her heart back into the normal rhythm. (Do I sound like I know what the heck I'm talking about? I really have no clue!) By the way, she was asleep for this. They were going to shock her heart back into the right rhythm, but they obviously didn't have to do that!
Anyway, the doctor said that he has only seen this happen a hand-full of times and the nurse had never seen it!

To make a long story short, they are keeping her again tonight to do a stress test tomorrow. They want to keep an eye on her and decided whether or not she may have had a mild heart attack. She's just turned 40 in May, so they are a little concerned about why this happened.
I'm sorry if this doesn't make alot of sense. I'm a little tired!

I would appreciate if you would keep her in your prayers tonight!

And thank you, Tasha, for watching my kids this afternoon. You are a true friend and I love you very, very much! :)
