Scariest day of my life

It started out as any other day, slept most of the day trying to turn myself around for overnight shift.  Had a lovely dinner made by my oldest Mike then it started he stood up reached for a DVD from the shelf and I looked over at him and he was GREY, clutching his chest and said he didn't feel well and proceeded to fall to the floor.  I caught him in time before he crashed to the ground he kept saying his chest hurt like his heart was being squeezed tight and then his eyes rolled back in his head, he was sweating and said his left side was numb. 
I was trying so hard not to freak out as he pasted out for a second time and I had to remind him to breathe.  I had to call 911 and they hooked him up to a bunch of monitors and decided he needed to go into the hospital.  The pain had stopped by the time they took him but they still felt he need to be checked out.
They decided it wasn't a heart attack as we all thought, they x-rayed his heart and it was fine other than he needed to slow down on his smoking and needed to be put on anti-anxiety medication along with his bi-polar meds. 

I have never felt like I was going to loose a child before, but it felt so real and intense, I will never forget this night as long as I live.  I am going with him to his doctor's on Wednesday and explaining all the problems he is having so he gets the help he needs.  I don't want to loose him, I am suppose to go first!!
Blessings to all who read my blog I appreciate your love and support.

Oh, you poor thing! We thought we would lose Brianna right when she was born, but we were right at the hospital. I can't even imagine having to stay calm enough to call 911. Sending lots of love and light and healing your way! ♥♥

Oh my goodness that is awful. So glad he is ok. I hope they are able to find and fix what went wrong! Warm thoughts for you and him.

I can only imagine how terrified you must have been! It's never a situation easy to stay calm in. I'm so sorry that you had to go through that. I hope this is an eye-opener for your son to slow down on the ciggs and take better care of his medical needs! Only one scare should be needed. Don't let the images run through your head too many times, it will make you worry more than you already do. Blessings to you and him. <3

No matter how old, they are always our babies. I can't imagine how terrified you must have been. Hopefully all is safe and sound now.
