I will always turn up....
I have been away a fair bit.
I experienced a small heart attack. No pain really, just a tightness in the chest and some arm and back pain. I was at work, and drove myself to the emerg. (not the best plan) Ya..... As Dr Prole said. OMG! That's so YOU!
anyhoo. All was fine on the EKG but they ran lots of bloodwork and six hours later the enzymes were elevated. Blah blah.
No going home for you! I was hooked up to machines that go PING!
After a few days of waiting in the hospital, making the nurses absolutely crazy and complaining about the food (Anyone who knows me can imagine how this went. It wasn't actually food, more like reconstituted kibbles'n'bits with less salt. That may be another blog post, I have pictures to share) I was shipped to another hospital for an angiogram.
Now, I don't want to frighten anyone, but that test? Holy shite.
They clamp you to the fucking bed to close the femoral artery afterwards.
Seriously. Totally fucked up.
Good news. My heart is just dandy. No sign of heart disease. YAY! ME!
Bad news, I am just a stressed out git who decided to blow. Stress thing.
I need to get the blood pressure down for good now. The meds make me feel really wonky because I am used to operating in the high ranges.
Anyway. pale lives! MWHAHAHAHAHAA!
I have many holes in my arms, my leg hurts like crap from the angio. I will be home for a while it looks like. Not because of the original issue, but from the fucking test. I lost a few pounds from the lack of food.
And that's my story.
