    Will be here ‘several’ days as bleeding is stable, but not stopped. No transfusion quite yet. Wait and see.

    Hope it's something self-correcting,
    e.g. a tiny nick exacerbated by a surplus of blood thinners.

    In the meantime, lay off the calisthenics;
    and keep paying attention to whatever your body is telling you -
    don't dismiss more dizzyness as a bad clam.

    That sucks, what method did they use after they removed the sheath? I had an angio seal after one procedure, it's like a collagen plug. Best one was after my first procedure after I had my heart attack, I had this super hot nurse at RI hospital applying pressure to the area for like an hour, I was like "what heart attack".

    You re on the short list when they take the needle out. Can I send you a pizza? I'll toss in some for the nurses if you give me the floor number.

    FINALLY had my situation explained to me. My original hemoglobin (red blood cell) count was 16 good/high) prior to the several heart meds including cumadin. I bled out to an 11 in the vicinity of catheter damage into my belly. 11 is still acceptable; 8 is transfusion. I will eventually climb back up, but I can be discharged at this amount if it stays constant. I have stayed constant 2 days since off the blood thinners. They will probably let me go tomorrow. Obviously I have to have my red blood count checked once on new meds.

    Looks like everything is moving in the right direction now and you will be out of there before you know it. As a bonus you will finally be able to get a good nights sleep for a change as well. Sleeping in the hospital is damn near impossible.

    I agree with the sleeping. Especially when you have the unfortunate 90 year old guy down the hall who had a fall and doesn’t know where he is, and is yelling “HELLO?” Every 30 seconds.

    For lunch yesterday, they offered the guy in the other bed pizza, among other things. When my turn came, she did not include pizza in the list. I asked if I could have pizza like he did. She said no. :mad:
