Sending lots of love!

I put a call into Nurse Orly Taitz (yes, she's a Dr. but she's a nurse too)... If you see her at the hospital, she's just there to help you. If she tries to put a birf certificate in your hand on the way to the OR, just ask her to wait till later, she gets excited. But imagine waking up to /s and /s.... "It es feenished realone, you es fine unlike usurper who used forged social security num...." (by then the meds should kick in). Wouldn't that be something?

They'll probably go in through an artery somewhere via a small slit. No big deal. Enjoy the fine dining and get well soon.

Not sure what to say after seeing Nurse Orly other than I hope you duck realist when /s/ and /s/ get close.

My hope for a quick procedure and a not too uncomfortable time with the weight on your femoral artery. :thumbs:

I’ve tried to be as helpful as possible though realist has resisted my attempts to keep him in bubble wrap the last 6 weeks. So mainly I go to the vascular surgeons, neurologists etc and cry. We are fortunate to have some of the best doctors in the country. Our GP even dropped by the hospital after teaching a class at Johns Hopkins and gave some input about the cardiologists, vascular surgeon etc. Calmed me down a little. I will admit that between this and my father having a stroke Thanksgiving week then passing away last month and changing jobs a month ago the holiday season was not the greatest.

It almost drove me crazy that the surgeon wanted to do surgery ASAP yet his own schedule turned ASAP into several weeks. But I’m confident in the surgeon and realist is a fighter (well, not with me) so I am going into this very optimistic. I will of course be at the hospital crying all day because that’s just what I do. His youngest daughter flew up yesterday to help and she’s very capable.

But certainly we will gladly accept any good karma credits to get him well.

I had a heart cath 20 years ago but they found no problems fortunately. Turned out I had severe gastritis that was causing the chest pains. I take a proton pump inhibitor daily since. Most of the time the docs who do those have done thousands.

Glad they found your problem before you had more severe issues. Get well soon!

:bighug: :bighug: to you and the Princess, realist. :bighug: :bighug:

I'm so glad you have great docs and so much support from all those who love you, including us virtual ones.

On the good news front, my dad had the same thing done when he was 77. He definitely had a TIA - brief episode of word salad was the tip-off. Docs said the carotid should be like the thickness of a pencil and his was the thickness of dental floss. He had some recuperating to do afterward, but came back strong and I'm sure you will too.

Take care and hang in there! :kiss:

Sending healing energy to both of you! The way you discovered this is far preferable to finding out at 3:00AM at home, so you are already ahead of the game.

Doctors rock, nurses rule, and don’t forget to take care of yourself, Princess.

See you on the flip flop, good buddies.

I am NOT a rogue member here. :fingerwag:

But, umm ... yeah. I can't run this little raucous playpen without realist's superior judgment. Our classified top sekrit system is, he makes the important decisions while I just fiddle with the knobs and dials.

Princess when you have a break from crying, tell the doctors and nurses we need that guy to be healthy and happy! :blink:

My only fear is that through some freak accident, Realist comes out a birther and sovcit! Watch everyone going into that ER carefully. Do any look Moldovian? Or like Orly Taitz in a costume? My fear is he'll be listening to old Orly tapes for days on end, taking notes. Please don't let that happen, Princess! The World is at stake!

Surgeon just came by and said everything went fine. Even better, they let us see him for a minute as he went into recovery and since he had the stent put in without anesthesia he was awake to say hi.

And if you didn’t know how much of a badass realist is , he had a stent put in through the groin all the way to behind his ear with only local anesthesia. 😳

Good to hear! They'll probably want to keep him overnight to see if it sticks where they put it, but odds are he will go home tomorrow.
