Didn’t want to take away from Gaby’s diagnose, so Im posting my details today. Yesterday, I had a very scary episode that it may change my life (and not in a very positively way).

On my way to drop off the girls to school, Gaby noticed that I had "blood" in my right eye. It was a broken capilar and hubby suggest that I took my blood pressure with the school's nurse, as soon as I get to work. Funny thing was that the night before was the first night in MONTHS that I went to sleep early, and that morning was going just fine. So, I was not upset and just fine.
My normal blood pressure has been 110/70, and it was 130/90. That range is still normal for some people but it was on the verge of being high, and it was higher than my normal blood pressure... I tried to stay calmed, but I was feeling "funny". I was feeling some kind of rush inside of me, and it was simply a funny feeling... I called my OB and he advised me to go to the ER. We left right away (hubby came with me so I didnt had to drive), and I was already feeling sharp pains on my chest...

When I got there my blood pressure was 160/100... That is VERY high! They did an EKG and it came out fine. So, they gave me a medicine under my tongue and after going to the bathroom a few times (doing pee reduces your blood pressure), my blood pressure when down to 120/80. He sent me to an cardiologyst, and I set up the appoinment for 5:30pm. Unfortunately, things got out of control, and Gaby's eye appointment took longer than expected (especially because I also check my eyes pressure because of the broken capilar), and when we got to the Dr., he was gone already.

I wasnt feeling any better, and the chest pain and left arm pain was getting stronger... I went to the ER again (not the same one because of location), and my blood pressure was 130/100. I explained him about the morning visit to the ER and showed him the papers with what they did to me, and he injected me an stronger medicine. I peed 3 times, and the blood pressure went down to 120/90. The second number was still high, but it was better than 100.
I knew that was it... I knew nothing was going to let me get away without getting diagnosed with high blood pressure.

Today I went for a check up with one of my uncles... He is a cardiovascular surgeon, not a cardiologyst, but I needed his opinion. When he checked me my blood pressure was 120/80, so it was perfect for him. He asked me to get a 24 hours holter ASAP, and to take him the results. Then, depending on the results, he will tell me what to do...

We explained Gaby yesterday, that mommy's heart is a little sick, and that she needs to cooperate so I can be calmed and happy. She promised she was going to do her best... I will post updates as soon as I get the results back.

(Note: My blog looks so sad without pictures... I promise that would change soon!)......

Anelys- My Mom dealt with high blood pressure, she started taking medicine prescribed by her doctor, started walking everyday, and started eating cheerios and oatmeal(that's for cholesterol), but it all helped.
I will pray for you.
