    My Dad took my Mom to the emergency room today because of chest pains. They will be running tests for 10-12 hours today. Please pray for my family.

    Thanks.

    All of my Mom's tests came back negative (good). They admitted her overnight for pain management.

    I will most certainly pray for your mother - I'm only sorry I didn't see this thread until now.

    My mom is home, but all doped up on pain killers. They still don't know what is wrong with her, but it doesn't appear life-threatening. She'll be going to a lot of specialists I'm sure.

    And thanks for all the kind words.

    I just saw this. So glad that the tests came back negative. Now that the crisis is over, keep in mind there are lots of things that cause chest pains that are not at all life threatening. My mother is almost 80 and suffered chest pains that sent her to the ER many, many times since she was in her 40's. Actually it's been better in the last decade. In her case it's spasms brought on by stress but not heart related. My daughter had to stop certain activities in her teens because of chest pains - a syndrome that even has a name, but not dangerous, just painful and inconvenient and it did pass. So try not to worry too much, although concern for your mom is a great thing and all us moms like to see it.

    My wife and I will pray for your mother and your family. Feel free to email me privately if you'd like to "vent" and get stuff off your chest.

    My dad suffered from terminal lung cancer for 7 years, so I know it's not fun to carry this kind of uncertainty around by yourself.

    My mom was in so much pain two days ago that my Dad almost took her back to the hospital. Then today she calls me and wants to know if she can have the Mavericks tickets to go to a basketball game tomorrow. She's still not doing great, but she is feeling better.

    Hopefully she'll get to see some specialists this week or next week.

    My grandmother is having problems too lately. It's going better now.

    All the best to you and your mother, Jim...

    Glad to hear it's going better to her too...
