Spin

Long story, but brief update....for what that is worth.

Dad, well he had 2 stents, was sent home, and then ended up back in the ER that night at 11:oopm.

His chest pain was worse. a 6-8 on a 1-10 scale. Little or no relief with nitro paste, morphine, etc....

EKG, normal, lab normal, BP high, pulse normal, enzymes slightly elevated, nothing crazy and that could have been from the heart cath...

He is now on on a new SLEW of meds, and we are monitoring him for hypotension now. A couple of days ago his BP was 70/40...holy crap.

Called the Doc, held the cardura for 2 nights.

I did manage to talk to his GP and get him a referral to the heart institute in Lincoln. Good news, medicare will pay. I just think we would all be better with a second opinion at this time. He needs a cardiologist here for acute situations..

His spirits are good, but he is freaking stubborn as hell, and is irritating at times.

DH and brother mowed his acre the other night, while I sucked up maple pods (yes he was in a snit about his lawn, and the damn maple pods....)

Yesturday he insisted on mowing the rental property.....even though I threatened to kick his ass.

Nothing like near death to bring proper perspective huh?


at 8'ish pm, I was in the back of his truck, with a pitchfork in tow, throwing grass out into the neighbors field...

Tornadoes, and rain here.....weather has followed me.

I am freezing, it is 73 HIGH today....BRRRRR


DH's Uncle was med evaced to a neurology institute in Phoenix, and had surgery, they are unsure on his status, or if, or when he will recover from his TIA's...

Have been trying to take care of a few debts, which is not easy when there is no internet....

Also trying to find a home, which is hard, since I feel as though I probably should be here right now....

The Collective are wild as hell. SR has began making a fortune off his Mom from starting a swear tax. 25 cents a word....I have been caught for Hell 3 times in the lat 24 hours...

I am pooped, tired as hell. Things would be smoother if I had computer access, as I am needing 15 hours of CEU's this month to "renew nursing license in Arkansas, and then I have to transfer it to Nebraska....

All of the banking I am doing seems to be complicated by going to town...

They only have freaking ethanol gas here, so I am having to pay 4.14 for gas....

puke...

OK...

there was the roundup...

If it sounds like I am scatterred and busy, well it is because I am...

My Fathers BP is better than mine right now...

In my head all I see is sand, and no people, and ocean....

Sending you well wishes. Deep breaths and a margarita should help some. I'll spot you a $10 as freebies for the jar. Some days it just makes it feel better.
