no, i dont want to know if i should take my kid with 104 fever to the ER- lol!
im actually concerned about my mom. she has had a persistent, what she describes as "nagging", pain in her chest for days. i found out when my dad was over on thursday, talking to her on her cell while she was at work and asking if she was feeling better. she told me then, on thursday, that it had been going on for days. which seemed unusual to me since she was at work still and continuing life as if nothing was happening.
then today she even came and picked up my kids and took them for an hour. she seemed fine. but when i spoke with her on the phone later this evening, she sounded either sick or tired. she said that she was tired, lethargic, and felt the same way yesterday afternoon. like she could hardly walk kind of lethargic. i asked her why she came and took the kids if she felt so bad, she said the nagging pain in her chest isn't as bad in the morning, but gets worse throughout the day, then she feels exhausted.
she also says its "not so bad" as long as she tries not to take a deep breath. her BP was high-ish at 140/90, but she took one of her BP pills and it came down. nagging pain is still there though.
i am fearing the worst, that something is wrong with her heart/lungs. i really hope its not an impending heart attack. she is a heavy smoker. she never drinks water, like ever. she's extremely thin and very underweight. she says she "thinks" she'll go to the doctor if she still feels bad tomorrow. stubborn woman!! i am so worried about her :(

Yeah... I agree with PMS & Prissy 100%... had the same thoughts!! She needs to see her Doc.... as M-avi says... doc can't treat dead... may not be that bad but things can go south pretty quick if left unchecked!!
