A Warning from the Hospital

From Kayelle Allen    I am writing this from a hospital bed. In the morning, I will have an angiogram. The doctors will thread a long tube through my arteries to get a better  look at my heart. For two months I have ignored chest pain, thinking it was panic attacks.  I finally called to set up appts and the nurse I talked  to convinced me to go to the ER. A simple test showed a heart blockage. I urge you not to put off getting acheckup. I did. It could have cost me my life.   I am lying in a bed writing this on a friend's tablet. Pardon the lack of pix or fancy formatting. I can't figure out how to add paragraphs. But I wanted to warn you and add a touch of reality to those nagging worries you might be having.  If you are worried take action. Do it now.

  2. Darling friend, I am grateful for the prompting that caused you to pick up that phone. Two months is a long time so you were certainly being watched over. Giving you prayers and strength to get through this. You are loved and are continuously in my thoughts. I'm here for whatever you need. Love you. I thank God for His care for you.
