Tinplate Art Is Having a Cardiac Event!

Hope Arnold will let me post this here. For the last week, I have been treating what I fully thought was heartburn. In a way, I was unknowingly playing a sort of Russian Roulette with my cardiac health! I am in the ER and am stable, and will be monitored overnite. l already have five coronary artery stent placements, and likely will visit the cardiac cath lab in the morning. At 76, and with 14 years of dialysis under my belt, I hope I am still tuff enuf to lick this latest medical issue. LOL! Please keep me in your thoughts, guys, and THANKS!

Original Post

LANDSTEINER: Saw my GI guy before going to the ER, and he guessed cardio involvement. Center line angina with no radiation, no nausea or sweating, mod BP elevation, normal pulse, and no shortness of breath. Elevated T enzyme, also not unusual for ESRD dialysis patients.

Fred: dank je wel! Dewey: GREAT to hear from another original forum member! Norm: THANK YOU! I am sitting on the edge of my hospital bed with a higher BP, than I or my nurse would like, with some mid-line chest pain, and a headache from that durn nitro drip! My lovely wife is on her way, bless her soul, so I am trying to feel better. These hospitals and their protocols are just like the Army: hurry up and wait! I am so glad some of you fellows are online at 4:30 US Central Time!  I have not slept a wink this night!

Can't sleep?  I get that, and all to well.  I sleep when I can now; no opportunity is passed up anymore. The time of day or night has little to do with it anymore. More sleep helps me sleep more regularly it seems.

  If you want someone to ramble at while there, or want a ramble to read that just may bore you into sawing logs, my mail is listed.
