Life Is Happening

_Kage Baker subscribed firmly to the idea that life is what happens when you’re making other plans.

I had planned to go to a standard checkup with my cardiologist today. Then I planned to go home. However …

My heart is being eeird. I was having chest pains thid morning; my breath could not be caught. No, not thoigh I ran ever so fast. Ehich is a major bummer.

So I am now iin Cedar Sinai, waiting for a permanent bed. I shall be observed tonight and in the morning I get an angiogram. And iin the meantime, I sm laboriously typing all of you, Dear Readers, a note of rxplanation. On a much too tiny screen and a dsmndd virtual keyboaff that has responses like a hummingbird on speed …

I should go home tomorrow. Updates as required. Life is definitely happening.

    Sending serenity and peace to your hyper-active heart; best wishes and healing light to you, and fond hopes of a better than on-screen keyboard for your Cedar Sinai dispatches. Looking forward to your always amusing reports from the Hospital of Fish Tanks.

    Damn. That sucks. Hospitals are not fun places to be, with or without fish. I hope you feel better soon.

    I hate those tiny keyboards. I tried to use the voice diction option but that’s just as bad.

    I hope the rest and relaxation at the hospital (ha ha) do you some good. Get out of there quick and in a healthy way!

      Cynthia – I am home, and I do actually feel better. My doctor reduced the amount of blood pressure drugs I was taking, and lo! Not only did my blood pressure rise to a level indicating I might be alive, I’m not dizzy any more! One of the reasons I was shipped off to the hospital was because my blood pressure was so low, they were afraid I was bleeding from somewhere. As for the diabetes … well, I hadn’t even noticed any symptoms yet. That’s probably because Kimberly plans most meals to accommodate Ray’s diabetes, and I was sort of getting a free ride … anyway, I am now cool, better-informed, less drugged and HOME!!!

      That’s nicer for the hospital, too. I am a lousy patient.
