Friday Gma said she was having chest pains. One was quite sharp and strong around 5:00pm, but after that they were just little tweaks. And they weren't really in her chest, more to the left and her upper side. She said they weren't like heart chest pains. We decided she'd better go to the ER in Cody just to be sure as we didn't want to have to wake up in the middle of the night and have to go. So off we went. They checked her all out and couldn't really find anything. She did have a couple of tweaks there, but they weren't long enough for them to get a handle on it. They took blood, did vitals, chest x-ray and all that good stuff. Waited for results from all that and then decided that she could either have an MRI or stay overnight for observation to see if anything more happened. The MRI would involve iodine being injected into her system which could or could not cause other problems, especially with her liver. So we opted for the overnight stay. They got her admitted to the hospital and there we stayed. They took vitals quite often in the night and blood that night and in the morning. She did have a couple of tweaks, but again not long or sharp. Got breakfast in the morning - scrambled eggs and a big danish roll, coffee, juice, and oatmeal. Gma ate all her roll and a bite of egg, drank all her coffee. Pretty good for her. I ate everything, but the oatmeal. Doctor finally came about 11:00am and said she could go home. They didn't find anything going on with her. He thought the pain could be a muscle at the rib cage. Said to take tylenol for pain and it would probably go away. All her vital signs were good, her blood was good, heart good. They called it atypical chest pain. Anyway we could stay for lunch since it was coming in about 10 minutes, then we could go home. So we did. Gma had ordered a half chicken salad sandwich and a cup of tomato soup, with chocolate ice cream for dessert. They brought a bowl of soup, but she ate half of it and the sandwich and ice cream. I got roast pork, scalloped potatoes, cauliflower-broccoli veggies, and rice krispie bar for dessert. She doesn't have to take any medication except her baby aspirin as usual, but she has to have a follow up appointment with her regular doctor in two weeks. We are to keep track of the pains. She told me twice that she had one and I wrote it down, but she hasn't told me of any more and I can't tell unless she jumps or something. When I ask she just says she doesn't think so at least not so you could tell as they go so fast she isn't sure.
Gma sure starts these years off with a bang.
