This is John, temporarily taking over Jen’s blog to let everyone know that Jen is in the hospital. On Thursday morning she started feeling dizzy – the "I just stood up too quickly" sort of dizziness – but the feeling didn’t go away. We went to the emergency room of the local county hospital, and they still haven’t completely figured out what is wrong with her. She’s feeling a bit better now, but her EKG shows (or the doctors think it shows) that one of her ventricles isn’t functioning as well as they think it should be. My (perhaps foolish) hopes of having her come home Thursday night were quickly dashed, as were any expectations of seeing her home on Friday when all of the cardiologists buggered off to play golf (or whatever it is that cardiologists do on weekends). They’re planning a stress test (hooking her up to a monitor and having her run on a treadmill, or something like that) for her on Monday to see how her heart functions.
We’re obviously hoping that this is all a big fuss over nothing. I’ll update here (or hopefully Jen will) when we know more.
