We had to get up so early so I could walk the dog before we went to the hospital for Rays Angiogram. I didn’t take my tablets last night and today so as to be able to be there for Ray. And I have had terrible pains. My toes and hands and fingers I could cut them off. But Im also shocked at the pain in my rib cage -its amazing I didn’t know it was there as I have taken pills. The shoulder pain so I now know what Debbie has been going through. Ray keeps asking why Im so quiet I don’t want to worry him and the tablets will be taken and start masking this pain. Oh what a disease, its a night mare !!! Everything is hurting and my thyroids in my neck has been giving me a dull ache and a choking feeling.
The Dr at St Barts was worried about the swollen ankles, but I have had them for over a year and Im waiting for the blood results to see how much damage has been done to my kidney.
I dont usually moan or mention pain so you know how shocked Iam to find I have so much and I will get those tablets back on an even keel again.
Dave our next door neighbour knocked dead on 7.15am so off we went.
It was a lovely ride down to Margate in the sun, we were soon there.
Ray has written about the day and it is his day so I will put the link on here for you to read. All the other men there so sweet and we all had a laugh as one by one they changed into their gowns and dressing gowns.
He was asked lots of questions about past health.
This is the state of him when he came back and was able to get up. It was on back to front for goodness sake, He said they did it in there –yeh right!!
I have never seen him show so much of his body to so many people.
I thought he would come back like this
Well I can dream cant I!!
Where has everyone gone
He did soon recover after he came back.
He was soon through it all and we could come home. I did go out to tell Dave we would soon be ready but I go lost and was heading the wrong way so I cam back.
When Ray and I came out we went in the wrong lift and it went up but it wouldnt go down so we had to find another one which did get us right down. Dave was there waiting bless him and we came home where ray has been resting.
He has a blocked artery that they will fit a stent into. I stupidly said great not a serious op, meaning not a Zipper open heart surgery. The surgeon said “I wouldn’t exactly say that , It s still serious. ” Silly me.
