Jing had a cardiologist appointment today
and we left home around 8:30.
A little over half way,
Jing was really quiet one minute
and crying inconsolably the next~ very out of character for her...
she never cries except
when she wakes up at night looking for me.
I pulled over at the first exit
and got out to try and comfort her~
even got her outside for some fresh air.
I couldn't get her calmed down but knew we had to keep going
so we wouldn't be late for her appt.
We had just gotten back on the interstate
when I looked back and her head was leaning back,
face so pale, and mouth open...
scared me to death!
I yanked the car over to the side of the road
and jumped out to make sure she was breathing
and had a heartbeat~ mine pounding out of my chest.
She was not really responding to me
so I called Scott very scared and had him meet me at the dr.
Thank goodness~ Rosie was with me
and got in the back with her until we got to the dr's office.
She finally woke up and cried pretty much the whole way~
we did finally figure out she needed to potty.
The whole way the only thing I could think to do was pray.
I got behind every single slow car
and stopped by every red light
but I knew God was right there in control.
That's the only way I was able to keep it together.
Long story short~
Cardiologist thinks she needed to potty so bad
and preceded to hold it instead of wetting her pull up
making her short of breath
and thus passing out.
They did do an EKG and Echo~
both showing good reports of her heart.
Because of the episode she experienced on the way,
they gave us a Holter Monitor to wear for 24 hours.
It will record her heart activity
and IF she should have another spell,
I am to push the button so it will record what's going on.
I was also scheduled for a hair appt today
so the big girls helped me with the little ones
and I was able to come with no gray! :)
SO... why scary and blessed?
Scared that she had episode
but blessed Rosie was with me.
Scared that we were on the interstate
but blessed we were headed toward Scott
and he was able to meet us.
Scared that something bad was wrong
but blessed we were on the way to the cardiologist!
Scared that it will happen again
but blessed we have the monitor to record all activity.
Scared to go to sleep tonight
but blessed God loves her way more than me
and already knows the plan.
I pray He takes care of our sweet baby.
Here are some pics from the day...
