worried, distracted, and probably MIA for a while

I may be MIA for a a bit. My beloved husband is in the hospital. He had an episode of chest pain today, which of course makes us all worry about heart problems and is, in and of itself, bad enough. But he also has a rare blood clotting disorder which has already led to clots around his liver, spleen, and stomach and a six-hour life-saving surgery. So, for right now, we're in an uncertain situation. They're running tests and, who knows? Maybe they'll say it's nothing and send him home. But, then again, five years ago I took him to the hospital with what he thought was an ulcer and he went straight to the ICU and was hospitalized for weeks. So send us good thoughts.

ohgod, Elizabeth -- I'm so sorry to hear that. You guys must be so stressed and worried. How long until the test results can let you know something? Good thoughts to all of you. Please keep us posted when you can, ok?

All good thoughts and blessings upon your house-

I so very much hope all is well and it's simply one of those horrible scares that you get when someone you love has a chronic condition.

An update would be nice- but worry about your issues first and foremost!
