Why, the jolly guy in red gave me a heart attack for just after Christmas! Otherwise known as the Nightmare before New Years. What a joy! I’m peacefully asleep in bed and…….uhhhhh chest pain, both arms pain!, Jaw killin me!- I guess this is what a HA is like….wait a sec… it REALLY is a Heart attack! So, i get up- take a couple asprin and drive to the hospital(7 miles), walk up to reception window, asked why I was there, I reply “thin I’m havin’ a heart attack”. And so begins a (kinda) scary new oddesy in my life. I have NEVER had so many blood tests in my life(My lifetime total before this week is maybe 10-12 times) OVER 35 individual blood tests in 3 1/2 days! Man, them nurses must hate me. After 20 or so BT I began to revolt! Did’nt do any good, They tackled me before i left the ward! after that, i was a little more tolerant of my (mis)treatment. Had one of them new fangled stents put in, made out of cobalt?(is’nt cobalt radioactive?)The doctors make you stay awake for this “insertion” no matter how often or loudly you say “put me TO SLEEP for this”!But NO, they need ya to see(on the new 10 gazillion dollar color monitor) (btw, they can only take B&W pics of this procedure, Go figure!)what them docs are doin’ in yer innards WHILE they are doin’ it! Ok, all done. What, already?? this whole dealie took tops 1 hour!- no pain, no drugs( other than topical) and 5 days rest(they let me go after 2) and off ya go, See ya!- take it easy(yeah right), no straining, light exercise, eat right, no salt!!, steer away from white flour(NO MORE BISCUITS N GRAVY?? Shit I’ll Die!)-no more bread! no more pasta, what , no meat, no dairy, no no no no- what am i supposed(allowed?) to eat? WTF , heart attack or starvation? at least a heart attack is quick!Wish me luck with the diet, I’ll need it!, damn, I’m hungry…………Willyo.
