No blocked arteries. WOOHOO! I spent all day in the hospital doing more tests today. So happy no blocked arteries, but now it means that angioplasty will not be my easy solution. Maybe a pacemaker or something else will help, I see the doc on Wednesday.
A crisis and a blessing happening...my dad was in the ER all night, night before last, mom and I were with him. It was mom's birthday. His lungs are filling with water from heart failure, so they put him on lasix and oxygen and sent him back to the nursing home. I was trying not to cry all day through my tests, wanting to be with my dad to comfort him, I don't want him to die alone, or be scared and in pain. I got home from my day of tests and was not even able to sit up or roll over, again thank heaven for my wireless keyboard and mouse on my bed. My brother goes there 4 hours a day, and mom goes in the evenings, so I wanted to be there the other hours, but when my brother got home, he said Dad had been sleeping the whole time...so it was a blessing that he was not scared or in pain or needing comforting, so that eased my frustration of not being with him. I will still try to be with him as much as possible but that's not much in the condition I am in. I don't want him to die alone...and it hurts me to think of it , more than thinking of myself dying alone.
