As a result, my heart was working too hard, and I was having a hard time staying conscious. So while I was in the hospital, they ran all kinds of tests, and adjusted my meds accordingly. They even checked my blood vessels to see if the five stents I had were still working. I am in good shape there also.

I am home now and all is well. I went in Saturday and came home today. I really feel good. I even lost some weight. Lesson learned. Scared the heck out of everyone in the building though. Anytime a heart patient here in Boston calls for an ambulance, they always send two ambulances. One for backup and one for the patient. And If there is a lot traffic, the second one is used to create openings for the one with the actual patient in it. When they saw two ambulances, they though there had been an accident somewhere. Nope, just little ole me.
Oh my!!! Take care, I have yet to take an ambulance ride...it's faster for me to have Shrek drive me, just a one way trip, since the ambulance comes from the hospital... I don't even want to think of my stent quitting working and I don't think Shrek can handle another emergency heart cath.
