I didn't smoke over it!

Wow it has been a while since I checked in, In that time a lot has transpired. 

 

Last Monday I was feeling chest pressure and it continued steady all day, but of course I was in denial about it. The next day it persisted. I went to ER and of course that starts a whole new ballgame. They put me in for a cardiac cath. and determined that I was having a heart attack. But things were different, my coronary arteries were clear and I was not having other symptoms of MI. They had me stay overnight and the next day I fell in the bathroom because I was so dizzy. My abdomen also hurt a lot. They determined that I was bleeding internally and I had to go in for emergency surgery on Wednesday which happened to be my sort of birthday, February 29. The cardiologist who "has done a million of these" nicked a vessel to cause the bleed. I needed two units of blood,I went through anesthesia twice. I hurt and I don't feel very good, but I survived! AND I DIDN'T SMOKE OVER IT!!!! 

 

Turns out I have what's referred to as broken heart syndrome....

 

It was losing my precious baby kittens. It just about killed me the day I took them to the shelter... I put so much Love into those kittens you wouldn't believe. I was inconsolable, except when I saw my RoRo (grandson)!  

 

There were other stressors leading up to this and happy but major events like becoming a grandmother to a wonderful prematurely born individual that I Love with all my heart.

 

I have determined that fostering kittens is not a good idea for me. Hazardous to my health!

 

On a happier note, one of the kittens, Bagheera, was adopted from the shelter. He was the one we worried about being less adoptable than the others.

 

I guess the moral of this story is YOU DON'T HAVE TO SMOKE NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH!

 

God Bless all you happy quitters out there!

LuLu Loves you!!!
