Pushing the PAUSE button

Late Thursday afternoon I was having some seriously painful chest pains and my left arm was going numb – after about one hour of this we went to the Emergency Room – where I was immediately tested with an ECG and found my heart to be FINE,

BUT upon furthur testing found that I have Costocondritis Рa painful inflammation in the cartlidge  between my left ribcage and sternum.

I am doing ok, just down for a few days with pain meds and anti-inflammatory meds until it is better!! Doing some hot/cold compresses on it and resting. My family is taking really good care of me and I should be fine SOON!!

But I hope you can see the need for my PUSHING THE PAUSE BUTTON!!!

I am kind of disappointed because I was really on a roll but I will pick back up, crafting and blogging, just as soon as I can!! I will still be around commenting since I can do that while resting!! Thank you for understanding and I hope to be back here after a weekend of solid, good rest!!!

Thanks for your follower-ship and support!!!

    Oh Taunya-please rest and take care of yourself. Your blog will be here when you get back. And with all your browsing, make notes of what you love-new techniques you want to try, cards you might like to CASE, products you might like to “buy” (your budget might not be good but when I am forced to just browse and comment, I tend to shop-bad, I know!!) but REST UP and feel better. I am glad that it is not more serious then it is but I have had a friend that had this and it was extremely painful. Saying some prayers for a speedy recovery!!

    OMGoodness, Taunya! When I read your opening description of your symptoms, my heart started to race! So glad to hear your heart is fine! Still, your inflammation sounds…well, inflaming, to say the least! Your positive spirit is so inspiring; be sure to rest and especially, enjoy allllll the spoiling and pampering that comes your way *grin* We’ll be hear, waiting for your return whenever you decide you’re up to it. No need to rush. Knowing you, though, you’ll be antsy-pantsy to get back into the groove…and in no time we’ll be seeing more dazzling delights leaping off the page at us! Speaking of which, I’m off to add comments to all the gazing and admiring I’ve been doing over your recent creations. You have been on a streak of awesome! Your visits to my blog…what can I say but *LOVE* you oodles!
