An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Yep…I had the heart cath this morning. Yep…there were blockages. Nope…didn’t get any stents. Doc said they aren’t big enough. Wonder what they call ‘big enough’? Is there were the entire vessel is blocked, and you’ve already succumbed? *shakes head* Well, that’s the good news, at any rate.
The bad news? I was awake through the whole procedure and lemme tell ya….IT HURTS! I was supposed to be knocked plum out! I was the last time they did one. This time? Pfft! Oh, they said they gave me plenty of meds so I wouldn’t feel anything. They lied! I felt EVERYTHING! Ever had a serrated knife shoved in your groin area? I doubt if that would have hurt near as much. You’d think she could have sent me home with a few pain killers while this hole is healing, right? Oh HELL no. Not only did they not believe me when I informed ‘em that I was feeling every single dig into my bod, they evidently don’t think I need anything after for the constant pain.
So now, I’m suppose to ‘take it easy’ for a couple of days, not life anything heavier than 10 pounds (she obviously didn’t weigh my purse before we left), and rest. Well, I can do that! Heh. In the meantime, I’m going to be sprawled out on the bed, watching movies, or reading, or generally being catatonic with the other cats. So, if ya don’t hear from me until tomorrow night, or even Thursday, you’ll know why!
And yes, I did hear that Rick Santorum dropped out of the race. I find it rather odd that he got more people votes than Romney, yet is WAY behind in the delegate department. Somehow, that just doesn’t make sense. I’ll have more to say on the subject in the future, but for right now….I’m going to play potato!
