My stress test came out fine. The doctor said he didn't see anything wrong with my heart and wrote an ok for my surgery.
Yes my water heater broke and they still have work to do.
The next day my a/c broke and they had to put a new motor in it.
The third day a car broadsided me and my car is in the shop and I have a rental car.
I will wait until they do the repair on the house before going in. A friend said he would pick up the car if it isn't finished yet and I will turn in the rental car as I won't be using it.
I like how the Amplified Bible draws out this verse: “Establishing and strengthening the souls and the hearts of the disciples, urging and warning and encouraging them to stand firm in the faith, and [telling them] that it is through many hardships and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.”
And the Message Bible puts it this way: “putting muscle and sinew in the lives of the disciples, urging them to stick with what they had begun to believe and not quit, making it clear to them that it wouldn’t be easy: ‘Anyone signing up for the kingdom of God has to go through plenty of hard times’.”
So we will have hardships but my preference is to not have them all at once. Nevertheless let the will of the Lord be done in all things.
Some of us have had a discussion about being put under or being numbed from the waist down.
After the anesthesiologist asked questions and found out that at the last surgery where they put me under they were going to take me to my room and I told them I couldn't breathe they told me I could. I kept telling them I couldn't so they put oxygen on me and what a difference it made. She realized I did not need to be put under so chose the numbing. I feel good about that. I will be more in control of how I feel.
Several of you have told of your good experience with this. She said she would keep me comfortable. I really like her.
She used to be an anesthesiologist for cardiology and loves my cardiologist. Now she is working with her husband. That makes me feel even better about her.
You asked and asked the date of my knee replacement. I so appreciate the kindness and concern of all of my Spark Friends.
Today I saw the anesthesiologist and she asked me questions, I asked her questions, my friend who is my health power of attorney asked questions. We both liked her very much. I told her one time I had surgery and they were going to take me to my room and I told them I couldn't breathe. They said you are breathing. I said, no, I can't breathe and they put oxygen on me and kept me in recovery a while longer. The oxygen did miracles. This lady told me I did the right thing.
She told me they would not put me out, that they would numb me from the waist down and not overdo it on the anesthesia but she would be right there to take care of me.
Now the 16th I see the cardioligist for a stress test and he has to fill out some papers if I can have the surgery or not, then they will give me a date.
