wow! I know you will tough it out, and get stronger so they can do the surgery. The Kevins need you
'See' ya in the morning. Have a good night.
Get well, man!
a mate of mine in the UK had to have his valve replaced. Fun fact - there are 2 sorts. mechanical and organic. The organic ones are from a pig (not even kidding). He was given a mechanical one - and when he's lying in bed at night, in the quiet, it ticks like a watch. he said it's rather soothing and helps him sleep....
I totally agree, I was there also but mine was Congestive Heart Failure.
@heltershelton , you got this my man, I can tell you are a tough son of a gun.....
Hope ya get that heart!
I used to think I was unkillable too.
Then I realized I was slydexic and I'm really just unlikeable.
I spent 2 weeks in icu with pneumonia and almost 2 liters of fluid in my chest about 8 years ago. So much that it was crushing my heart to about half its normal size. My heart rate at the time never went lower than 100. Ever. In bed 6 hours? 100+ bpm. I'm guessing it beat twice as fast to keep the blood supply going since it was only moving half as much. The doc said I couldve died at any time basically. They did a thorocotomy and cracked my ribs open. I had 2 chest tubes. It was hell and I've got to go back soon.
Praying for you. Get well soon! I have a pretty good idea what your going through. I'm afraid I'll probably have to do it soon. Been putting it off because I have a real fear of surgery.
Im in the process of quitting smoking, also.
thats terrible and pretty much whats happening to me, only the added fluid was cause by a 130+ heart rate.
not being able to breathe sucks, and youll do just about anything to catçh a breath. on the way to the ER i was literally on my way out.
they wasted no time.....an entire team went to work......it was like being a nascar at a pitstop.
before i knew it i was all wired up and things began to get better.
im terrified of open heart surgery too....but after sitting in this place a few days i found all thats in my head. yeah, theres some painful stuff, but then i remember kids who have it way worse and are tougher and it makes me feel like a wimp.
good look with your thing man, its not as bad as it seems.
It's 5:00 am. Getting ready for work.
Had to stop by and wish you a good day man
& Stop grabbing the nurse
Wow you're up early
Take it easy
theres no sleeping here. might catch 45 minutes or an hour from time to time.
all through the day and night they keep coming in checking vitals, giving drugs, taking blood, getting my weight, bringing food, and doing all the things they do.
one thing i find strange is they havent woken me up to give me a sleeping pill.
so yeah, im gonna be one tired puppy when i get out, which hopefully will be today. theyve taken me off the IV lasex and started giving it in pill form, which is an indication i should be out of here soon.
and the food is not bad.
They haven't woke me up for a sleeping pill
The video tour of a hospital room..
Man you going stir crazy huh?
How are the nurses? They treating you right?
RNs run the shop.
If memory serves well, they wake you up every hour to take vitals or something. You learn to cat nap at lot. I know are jacked in so they can monitor you from afar. Make sure they haven't installed a plug on the back of you neck. Gotta jump, work. Keep making progress.
Glad you're still kickin'.
I spent a month in a Kaiser bed one night.
Ya... that night felt like a month.
The staff wasn't bothering me, but the BP cuff was pumping up about every 15-30 minutes, and of course, I have high BP, so it was sounding the alarm.
well im here at least 2 or 3 more days.
just talked to the cardiologist and tomorrow they are going to look at my heart through my stomach, then later on they will do a heart cath.
depending on those two things they may kill me then shock me back to make my heart work right.....to get it to slow down so it can be stronger for a valve replacement.
this is much worse than i thought.
