I set down to watch my favorite soap opera at about 11:30 yesterday morning. I ate my lunch while I watched it. Before the show was over, about 30 minutes later, I had fallen asleep. During my nap, I remembered trying to wake up three times but could not open my eyes. By the time that I did open my eyes, it was already 3:15!
I've had this happen to me before. The last time was probably about 13 years ago. I remember that I was in the living room when it happened. Leighlyn was still very young and Abigayle had not yet been born. I remember trying to force myself to wake up but I couldn't do it. Before then, it had happened to me in 1985. We had been living in Garden City. I had had one of my worst seizures at work that day. An ambulance was called to take me to the hospital. Once in the emergency room, I went into a short lived coma. Once I came out of it, I returned to as normal as I get. LOL!!!
So I don't know what is the cause for this development. Shortly after I woke up yesterday, my cardiologist's office called me and told me that they need me to take an echo tomorrow afternoon in Scott City. This test is a sonogram of the heart. It provides much information to the doctors. I will see my cardiologist on Monday morning. If something else is going on with my heart, I should know something then.
This could have been caused by the disease that has affected my brain and heart for the past 30 years or so. At this time, I don't know.
I would definitely appreciate your prayers!
