I THOUGHT I Was Ready For Anything!

Last Monday, the 26th, I had a heart attack.
A bad one.
Bad enough to have to be transported to a major hospital around 3 hours away. (although the ambulance only took 2 1/2 hours)
Okay....wasn't expecting this !
It was an interesting experience. I was whisked into the cath lab, and I got to see my heart from the inside! They threaded a camera, a balloon thingie and a stent through my femoral artery.
I am now on 7 different meds (ack!) and have to start cardio therapy.
I am heading to Va to see my kids tomorrow. One of my sons is flying up to drive me down.
Other plans have been made, things are happening.
As usual, I was a smart ass throughout the situation.
In the cath lab, I got a little pukey due to them giving me morphine. It's how I react to most painkillers.
The doc wanting to stop this reaction was planning on giving me a pill...
He asked me, "Can you swallow?"
I told him, "Not until after the third date, hun. I'm not THAT easy!"

Never throw a straight line like that at me....


  1. Update on your health and anything else you can/want to share with us.

  2. I can't leave you on your own for a minute! A Heart Attack! What the hell, Lamb? I don't have enough followers left where I can afford to lose any more! You need to start taking better care of yourself. Eating healthy, quit smoking if you are, find your happy place and don't waste any more time grieving about what should of been! Quit worrying about goats and shit and just take care of yourself! You are a good person and deserve to be happy. You have friends who care about you!

    I am going down hill fast but I am still trying to live the best I can. I will be 65 in a few months and both of my legs are going numb!!!!!! I didn't figure on being crippled! I bought a used van to haul my fat carcass around but don't go much! I got to keep going, Mrs. Rat needs me!

    Guess I better try and read my blogs more often and keep up with what's going on better. YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Rat, baby, thank you for your concern. I wasn't planning on the heart attack. And I had already sold my goats. I am now out in Missouri, staying with friends.
      The heart attack interesting experience. My heart stopped for 2 1/2 minutes. Definitely gave me a new perspective on things.
      The doc got me on Nicorette gum, so my smoking has gone WAY down and I hope to be completely done with it by Yule.
      I had lost weight already...since July, I have lost 60 pounds.
      So, doing my best to take care of myself, okay?

    2. 60 pounds! You must be HOT as a firecracker by now! Buy a camera, post some pictures of your new HOT body! ha ha ha glad to hear about the smoking! I gained 50 pounds when I quit! It was a bitch! continue to take care of yourself later=


Because of a couple of rude people that left comments that included links to porn pages and such, I have been forced to start moderating comments again.
