Minion Monday – The thoughts that went through my head.

A couple of months ago I woke up with shortness of breath and chest pain, I asked my husband to take me to the emergency room. They were amazing, they rushed me back and started tests, soon realized I wasn’t having a heart attack but I was in afib (irregular heartbeat) with an asthma attack.

Helping you find breath

Showing you calm

Silencing the storm

Bringing peace

Holding the storm at bay
