bit of a scare

I know some of you have emailed me today/tonight so I wanted to update here. I'll answer them all tomorrow, here's why they didn't get answered tonight.

Had a bit of a scare tonight. I had a headache all day, plus over tired from not sleeping the past few nights. Anyhoo, I was fixing supper and went to take my fish oil capsules. If you've ever seen them, they are huge. Well I immediately got a pain in my chest and I felt oozy. Matthew asked if I was okay and I told him I was going to pass out, which I did.
Scared everyone. I was out for a few minutes. Sam called 911. He said my eyes rolled back and my arms and legs went stiff. He slapped me several times to try to get me to come too. I did come too and shortly after that the fire truck came. All my vitals were fine and after talking to them, we really think that the capsule got lodged wrong and my body reacted.
I feel fine but I am going to talk to my doctor about it.
Poor Matthew was so scared. I have reassured him though.
So that was our excitement for the night. Some that we can do without ever happening again for all we're concerned!

Oh yikes...how totally scary that must've been for you guys!! I can't swallow those big pills. Even when I was pregnant, the pre-natal vit's would gag me - I had to take a couple Flinstones instead!!
Glad you're OK!!!!
