So, I get a call from my dad today at work and let it go to voicemail.  I plugged in my headphones to listen to it, and ripped my headphone out as soon as I heard, 'your mom had a heart attack.'

Let me first say, she's ok, and was cracking jokes when she finally got to a regular hospital room.   

Turns out, she indeed did have a heart attack while at work teaching.  911 was called, and she was taken to the local hospital where a heart attack was diagnosed on the 2 minute ambulance ride there.  She was then air lifted up to Milwaukee, about 25-30 miles away, to one of the best heart hospitals in the country.  

If no one has ever experienced the adrenaline/panic that comes with a phone call of that nature, I now envy you. 

it's 10 hours later, and even though she's doing fine and and will fully recover and be fine for my wedding next Friday, I'm wondering how much sleep I'll actually get tonight.

Holy crap that's rough news man. Was really glad to get to the "she's ok" part, I had a feeling something went down from the title.

Best wishes for you and yours man.

Good to hear that she will recover fully.I've got the call before but the news wasn't as good (if that's the right word to use).

57, and in otherwise great health.  Cholesterol, hdl and ldl numbers were all fantastic, she was on blood pressure meds, exercises every day, eats well.  

She's the healthy one in the whole family.  So this was completely unexpected.

I'm sorry to hear that. I had a similar experiance when my mom was in an accident with a semi a couple of years ago. I do not envy you, that's for sure. I am glad to hear your mom is okay and recovering.
