    Oh shit
    I hope you get out of there before you catch something, or they kill you with the food. The crap they feed you in the cardio ward is especially horrible

    Blood is behaving. Value of 1 is a negative result. Last week I was 5.4. Had increased to 6.7, now is 5.0. Looks good.

    To have to ask for a couple of Tums...sheesh

    And canceling breakfast. That sucks.
    Tel them you want bacon and eggs.
    Troponin is a shitty protein as a diagnostic. You want
    Brain natriuretic peptide - Wikipedia

    Which is more in tuned with pissed off heart muscle.

    Seen the cardiologist. Levels more or less “normal”. BP May have been low yesterday. Look like I get to go home after the spaghetti Special.

    I am glad you are okay. Be well.
    Years ago, my step-father came home from hanging blue board and plastering all day. He sat down, felt a little light headed. My mother decided to take him to the ER at Winchester Hospital.
    He had been having a heart attack. two arteries were >90% blocked and two more were substantially blocked. The doctors were at a loss to explain why he had not collapsed earlier in the day. Quadruple bypass that day.
    He lasted another decade before dying in his sleep from cardiac arrest. Even then he was walking 4 miles a day. 100 sit ups and 100 push ups a day.

    No cheese on the pasta, no butter on the beans, no salt on the crackers. There were 3 meatballs.

    They ran over for treats, then went back to their naps. On the way home, went to my local PD station and got my Walther back. No real hassle, but it took a long time with paperwork. Never had to do that before.

    Switched back to my Detective Special; it's a much easier carry and I don't get poked by the barrel.

    I went to my neuro-opthamalogist today. I knew something was wrong besides being unable to see the target when I shot the byf43. I did get a new script, but it turns out a heart attack messes up your vision. When he was adjusting for my prisms, the double image kept moving; left, right, and back. Good thing is that it will get better, eventually; bad is that my vision sucks right now.

    That I did not know. When my car got hit a few years ago, I did not notice until I got to the doctor that I had vision loss. The day after the accident I had around 66% peripheral vision loss in my right eye. Three months later it had improved to 30% loss.

    Glad to hear it will recover. I'm never quite sure whether the human body is an incredible organism that can seem to heal itself quite well or something much more fragile; somewhere in between, perhaps.

    We had our nails trimmed today. Full grown now, came in at exactly 20 pounds. See if I can find a soft tape measure; she’s close to 36” long and maybe ~18-20” around the middle.

    I sometimes joke about making rabbit stew with our rabbits but yours would do much better! [devil]

    We still have the Xmas tree up without decorations because they just loooove being under it. The lady got stuffed rabbits for Christmas and ours love them and cuddle with ‘em. Weird little critters.

    Plumber has a hernia; construction pushed back to March. Maybe we’ll be done by my birthday in June.
