|amazing - my husband's heart|
Great News! No stents or bypasses needed. They can treat his "lazy heart" with medications.
|My husband's heart|
His cardiologist showed me the actual video of his heart pumping. Freaky.
He had to stay all day at the short stay - LONG boring day. They brought in a guy, a few years older than my husband- his test didn't go too well. He will get 3-4 bypasses on today. His wife was hysterical. I felt sorry for the man. The wife called their sons and the husband didn't want to worry them. She was on the phone telling everyone. It was her way, to vent off the stress - I get that but still felt for the man. He was helpless. Then he told her to go home and get some rest. (He wanted to be alone) and she said, she would go get something to eat and come back. He kept trying to convince her, to just go home and he would see her in the morning. She wouldn't have it. Oy vey!
As an introvert myself, I felt for the guy. He needed to be alone, to process and anyway, it isn't about her - I could tell, she was an all-over-the-place kinda wife - won't let him do anything. You could tell they both cared for each other - she just was smothering the poor guy.
Yeah, we dodged a bullet this time - He goes next month for another test at his cardiologist. Soon, I will demand to check out my heart. My doctor is laid back - he pretty much expects his patients to be their own advocates, which is good. He doesn't send you off to get a bunch of tests if there are no symptoms. But with my history, I need a baseline checkup.
So much fun, getting old.
