yeah, yeah, I’m procrastinating!

1 Comment

At this time, I really don’t want to write about my medical procedure! I’m not saying I won’t- just that at this time. I’m not going to! I’m having some emotional issues where this is concerned and I don’t like being this vulnerable! So until I get some of my emotional strength back. Ya’ll take care!

Hey Ya’ll!

It’s about that time!

Tuesday- pre surgery stuff, I’ll be going in for last minute stuff. And we’ll be staying at the VA family hotel!

8/23 Wednesday- Showtime! Surgery!

I’ve been informed it’ll be 6 to 8 eight hours and my brother texted me, he and his wife will be keeping Patrick company! Thank you very much!!! JiJi will be home alone-no pets at VA hotel! 😦  After surgery, I go to ICU for hours and then after I pass the tests there, I go to my room? I’m confused about that stuff. I will be in the hospital for a minimum of 7 days doing strength building exercises, recovering and other PT stuff. The PT stuff I’ve asked for is to color. It’s my personal therapy! I’ve been informed that I won’t be discharged until the doctor says so! Patrick is able to stay at the VA hotel the entire time! YAY! Free of charge! but no JiJi. He’ll be checking up on JiJi too, and sending me pix of him! I’m still concerned about gas money! So we’ll have to see how often he can drive back and forth! 😦

I’ll be off Social Media from Wednesday-surgery day, until probably late Thursday? if not Friday!

To all my tweeple and friends- thank you! Big Hugs!

Tweeple; don’t let up the fight! Keep resisting and giving them HELL!

I’ve scheduled Stargate Rewind posts for this Friday, next Friday and September 2nd. I hope to be home to do the next one!

Okay, think that it’s it for now!

I’m just going to start! On July 22nd I started having chest pains and other symptoms. I asked Patrick to take me to the Marion VA ED-he knew it was bad if I was asking to go to the ED! So we get there and they take me in quickly and then I get berated (!) by coming to MY Nearest VA ED! they can’t do a fucking thing so they call an ambulance to transport me to MGH ED! well, there’s a complete asshole on there (ambulance) and I ask to not deal with him! We get to MGH and he’s still yelling at me! what the fuck ever asshole!

Finally, I know the ED staff at MGH! Yay! for working with them on a nightly basis. lol, They do their best to stabilize me! But they don’t have what I need either, so while sticking me on a Nitro drip in my IV they contact an ambulance to take me to St. Vincent’s heart hospital. so, I’m going to bitch here for a sec! Ambulances-what, no shock absorbers? and a 3-hour fucking drive? really? WTF! **This past week we’ve been going this route and it’s less than 2 hours!

Anywho I ended up staying in a little room in the ED there however it was quiet and the doc on duty said I’d speak to the surgeon in the morning and probably be in surgery! Patrick had gone home from MGH to check on JiJi and get some sleep. He came in early in the morning and the surgeon talked to him and me about the procedure. I signed the forms. Next thing I know I’m in a room and Patrick said that they finally put a stent in! “You had a 100% block! We were lucky!” He really likes the ST Vincent’s Heart Hospital, “they are competent and saved your life!” Plus other factors: how they included him in my treatment and treated him like a person, not a burden!

Timeline so far: 7/22-heart attack, 7/23-stent placed in surgery,  7/25-discharged from St. Vincent’s.
After I was discharged I’ve had appointments on a daily basis with the Indy VA! I’ll forego the discussion I had at work! (still a sore topic w/Patrick & I)

There have been some wicked cool moments in between the appointments! Like getting the new iPhone 7 S+ and saving a ton of moola with the best buy mobile dude, Xavier! Seriously, he saved me over 100.00 a month on my bill and the phone is only 27.00 a month added in. I’m still paying waaay less and I finally have a new phone. My last one was the iPhone 4! yep! lol

Anywho update with the VA cardiac surgeon! I like him, so does Patrick! He talked with us, not at us! Very Important! He listened to our concerns and discussed them with us. He told us the years experience he has at open heart surgery! I think 22 years! So Yes, I go in this Thursday 8/10 to sign the consent form for surgery! I completed a lot of the pre-surgery tests this past week and the Doppler on my veins was completed Friday!!

So for those that want to know, I’ll be having open heart surgery on 8/23! I’m hoping members of my Family-(cause Patrick’s isn’t all that!) will come down to the Indy VA to sit/keep Patrick company for the 6+ hours I’ll be in surgery! Thankfully the VA has a place for Patrick and me to stay the day before and he’ll be able to stay the entire time I’m admitted to the hospital! Apparently, I’ll be admitted for a week maybe longer depending on my recovery time! I’ll be exercised on a daily basis to get me back to strength as quickly and safely as possible!

I’ll be posting a link to my PayPal as well because I’m not working and neither is Patrick! so we’ll need gas and food money!  If you can donate please feel free! I wouldn’t ask if we didn’t need it! I don’t know when I’ll get FMLA payment from work either! 😦  ***Edited: the link doesn’t work- on Facebook or Twitter please PM me and I’ll give you my email to send/donate to me-Thank you in advance if you can!

so, for now, that’s all that’s happened and is getting ready to happen!

Take care of yourselves! Peace, love and hugs!

It’s Party Time aka it’s my Birthday! Woot!

raw

it’s official 

I am now the third shift Access (crisis) therapist!

I applied for it and after they adjusted a few – un nuh ain’t doing it changes. I reapplied and accepted the position. And it’s official, my first day will be August 1st!! I was supposed to start on July 31st, but after reviewing that I’m working two weeks straight without a break, my Boss had the start day re-adjusted too! Woot!

SO! Sunday through Thursday I’ll be on the overnight shift! Nine pm to Eight am, except on Sundays when I start at Eight pm. YES!! I get my Fridays off again!! and most Saturdays-I’m still on the On-Call and holiday rotation schedule. Bonus though those are Access Hours!! (means more moola!! 😉 )

honestly after speaking to my doctor who keeps informing me I NEED to get my stress down, we agreed that a third shift would be beneficial for my health, and I’d finally be able to make my appointments!! Yes, I do speak with my provider. 😉 And most of the time we agree with each other. LOL

So this week, I’m still on 8am to 5pm.

So yesterday I took ALL my Monster High dolls, and ALL my collectible Barbies and Hubs put in some of his collectible stuff too. And we went to Kokomo Toys and WooHOOO! We made a pretty good deal and so now I can afford to get him his eye exam and glasses.  Which while in Kokomo, we found a much better deal at an optometry place in the mall; exam and two pairs of glasses right under $100. I need to cancel that eye appt at Meijer’s. 😉

And while we were at the Store, hubs took a photo me with Cobra Commander! lol very candid. I didn’t even check out my hair a mirror. LOL 😛

and yes, I asked permission first if I could take a photo with him. Always better to be well-mannered and polite. Some places do not like you to just start taking photos of stuff! ya know!

Kokomo Toys is an action figure collectible geek’s dream store!!! OH YES! They have pretty much anything you can think of and a few I’d never heard of. lol They even had some figures from the Stargate Movie. I wasn’t there to buy yesterday, but to sell. And I managed to stay on track with that! 😉 okay mostly.…they did have a Kimmi doll for under $10, and hubs talked me into it. I just sold ALL my collectible dolls, so a little Kimmi for under $10 yeah, I buckled.

Her official name is: Sorrow

A bitter sweet symphony, a catching melody that sweeps you off your feet and transports you to a deeper world. (from the official website link above)

But I do like the description of her name. Kind of fits; the transportation into a deeper world. 😉 I just love the boots with the plaid skirt! 😉

And now onto the work week! 😀

Ya’ll have a great day! and if you’re in Central Indiana be sure to check out: Paul Poteet for your weather information. 😉

Who’s a type A?

TypeATypeBCartoon

I’m a type A! LOL 😀

so what to do while you’re on call for twelve hours, well if you’re me, then you get the start of your documentation for the W H O L E week ready to go! Yep!! That’s me!

This is helpful for multiple reasons, one I can sleep in a bit, not have to get up at the crack of dawn, to get in and get it done early in the morning. Ta*Da it’s started already! And two I feel better being prepared, takes my stress level from an eight to a two!!! Yeah! That is the most important!! Stress level! 😉

and um… I’ve been painting my fingernails too. lol 😉 looking cute I still have to do my ring finger’s at home, I forgot that nail color. Yeah, I usually do my ring finger nail’s a different color! I’m just different like that.

Now then, my Type A personality is waaaay more laid back than a TRUE type A, or as I’ve gotten more mature it’s mellowed out. I don’t get as angry as I used to, or if I do, I control it much better!! If I have an issue with something or someone- I confront the situation or them as logically as possible. Emotion has no room in this – Philosophy 101! 😉 But I am a time person-I still arrive places an hour earlier than scheduled, still a bit of a perfectionist, even though I’ve learnt to stop correcting people on their spelling, punctuation, and pronunciation. OH YEAH! I used to be really really bad about all of those!! Ask my friends that remember when I’d reply to their emails and I would red the corrections to their emails. 😦 yeah… I’m not embarrassed by it, I think it’s humorous now.  But my friend’s would smack me when they saw me. Still humorous! 😀 AS to my stress level and the chances of Heart issues, um yeah, no friggin doubt!! TIA’s-4+ including one as recent as two weeks ago, Strokes-2 and a Cardiac Arrest in 2010! all before I was forty-five! So I’ve had to learn to relax some of my stringent ways and go with the flow!!

Also a big thank you to my spiritual beliefs and my love of artistic endeavors which has helped me with my logic skills, patience, mindfullness and keeping me busy with different ways to relax! 😉

Wormhole of my heart, why yes I am a Gate Geek! 😉
