I tried to post from the hospital, but had a lot of operator error.
Thank everyone for your kind words. I will briefly recap the events.
On 1/20/12 I went grocery shopping. The check out girl asked me if I was ok, I said I just didn't feel well. I got home and started unloading the groceries and I thought I was going to pass out. I composed myself and got everything put away. My heart would not slow down, it kept racing. I waited all night, no go. Too long I know. At 6am (01/21/12) I called myself a ambulance. I had to walk out to it because they went to the wrong apartment. I was in room 8 and my ex-daughter in-law's father (oldest grand children's grandfather) was in room 4, he had a stroke. We both got shipped up to Washington Hospital Center. He was released before me to rehab where he had a heart attach and did not make it. Anyway. On the 23 they put in 3 stints, then sent me to Echograhm. There they found Aortic valve stenosis
. The disision was made to do open heart surgery so they did a bypass on the stints that were just put in. On Wednesday they found fluid building up around my heart. They were going to intibate me and put in a drain. I asked to have it done under twilight, as that is easier on me. They said NO until the next day and said they would try it. It went smoothly. Within hours I was back in my room eating dinner.
I have a long way to go to be fully rehabbed.I still feel worse then I did when I walked to my ambulance. But is it is so good to be home.
