    Paula,

    Glad to hear its not a clot. I hope they figure this out soon- though I know you wish that more than me.

    Nothing to be sorry about. We are just very glad to hear you are being discharged. No clots is good.

    This! I'm sure it's still frustrating to have no answers, but at least there's no clots! That's very good at least.

    Yes the lack of clots was very good. If I had had a clot it would mean heart surgery.

    The trip to the ER wasn't a bust after all. In addition to knowing what it is not, we got some new clues. While I was waiting to be discharged, I kept falling asleep. I would wake up to the cardiac monitor beeping as my heartrate reached the low 50s. Someone at the nurses station hit mute because I was being discharged. The next time I fell asleep I went deeper. My husband watched as my heartrate hit the 40's, my respirations went to 6 per minute and my oxygenation fell to a deadly 87%. He said "Paula" loudly. I startled awake took a deep breath and my numbers went back to normal. My husband was not happy. No wonder I am anxious about sleeping. My brain knows what is happening.

    The Dr. said that that is classic obstructive sleep apnea, so they are setting up a sleep study for me. Some mysteries still remain. Why does my heartrate go low when I am awake? Why suddenly develop this now when I am healthier than I have ever been?

    I am not going to school tomorrow. Bill will take me to have the blood tests. Hopefully the sleep study will take place soon. Tonight, my poor husband will monitor me.

    What a lovely thing to say. Sorry I am in crisis right now, I am usually much more fun than this.

    Do you have a monitor at home for him to use to help watch things?? Oh and with spleep apnea is it the heart or the oxygen (lung function)?

    Sounds like central sleep apnea, not obstructive. In any case, scary!! Good to have a direction to go in, though.

    Good luck with the sleep study when you do it! Be sure to bring your own pillow and blanket for maximum comfort. Trust me on that! When you've got wires strapped to your head and a breathing monitor on your face, the last thing you want is a crappy pillow.

    Yeah, it sounds like central to me too because of the brady.
