6. Thanks all - you made me cry - sheesh, there goes my reputation!

The original tests run in the ER showed an increase in the cardiac enzymes which is indicative of a cardiac event. They transported him to Swedish, where they monitored him and ran the enzyme tests every two hours for 24+ hours. The test results stabilized and after a CatScan to rule out blockages, he's now home. They will continue to monitor him.

This is the singularly most scary event of our 33+ years of marriage. All I could think about was that we just had a huge, entire family Thanksgiving, welcoming newborn grandchildren and fiance's into our family and now we would lose him. I think the scariest part was him ASKING to go to the ER. Luckily we have a new ER about 5 min from where we live. This is a guy who once didn't believe he had broken his leg and wanted to ski back down the mountain ... with what ended up being a 7" spiral fracture.

I cannot even tell you the reason, but we've had three bottles of low dose (81mg) Bayer aspirin here at home. PLEASE, GO BUY SOME! They advise keeping them on your nightstand. He swallowed 3 when the pain and the clamminess came on. He was off by 1. The rule is FOUR and they should be chewed. Do yourselves a favor: read up on it and ask your doctor about taking them and keeping them handy. PLEASE.

Again, thank you all for your prayers and warm thoughts. Even in our most heated debate, I have never once believed that our politics could divide us more than our concern for our neighbors unites us. We are indeed all neighbors here, united in wanting the best for and of our community ... and clearly, from your warm thoughts, each other.

8. Last month I had a cardiac stent implanted in my heart. They did the whole thing through my wrist. After 45 min it was done and I had a small bandage on my wrist.

Not the kind of scar that gets you any sympathy or chicken soup or brownies from the neighborhood ladies.

Good luck.

9. Rags, this is especially close to home today. At work, we received the news that one of our employees (who I had worked with at a previous employer), died of a heart attack last night. Everyone was totally shocked and saddened. Hug your hubby for me (and I sure am hugging mine).

13. You can't keep a friend of Galt down!

14. Thanks Steve, yes, we're just winding down and focusing on the important things. Thanks so much for asking.

Ironically, my husband absolutely detests all things political. He indulges/endures me during election year, but now when political talk comes on TV he's off to the golf channel, motorcycle racing, international soccer or really old black and white movies or even Barret Jackson auctions. Anything but politics.

Clearly we're a match made in heaven :-)

Merry Christmas, all.

15. "Clearly we're a match made in heaven :-)"

Maybe not quite as opposite as Carville-Matalin :)

Merry Christmas back at you and yours.

16. I'm glad to hear that all is going well. Wishing a wonderful Christmas for you too. Life is so precious. I'm sure your holiday season will be a little extra special this year.
