In common with most MS “sufferers” I get aches and pains from time to time, I always just put it down to MS and move on. After some pretty intense chest discomfort recently I was persuaded to go the doctor, I was referred to a cardiologist and scheduled for a coronary angiogram. I was dreading the day and imagining all sorts of horrible suffering with things being shoved into my heart!! Yesterday I had it done, I felt quite silly by the time it was finished as it was completely painless and not even uncomfortable. 🙂 The NHS staff at Kettering hospital cardiac unit were the most delightful people and made the experience almost like a nice day out. 😀
I created some entertainment for myself when I returned from the procedure. The man in the next bed was constantly complaining about everything! I discovered when I was cheerfully chatting to a nurse it appeared to annoy him? the more it annoyed him the more cheerful I became, it was the most fun I have had for ages, I will have to go out more often.
The outcome of the angiogram was that my heart is in great shape, just 2 tiny areas of plaque that are not obstructing blood flow. I guess it was a good idea quitting smoking 12 years ago and stopping eating animals 15 years ago. I was given strict instruction when leaving hospital, things not to do so as not to open the artery in my wrist, these included not using my crutches (wheelchair bound for a bit) no housework or lifting for 2 days so I am being pampered. 🙂 I may have accidentally told Julia that it is for much longer than 2 days? 😀
Midnight is about a year old and is looking for a home. Midnight is a little shy at first (who isn’t) but very playful when he knows you. He likes other dogs and cats and is just fine with slightly older children.
