So I’m back…

A long day at the hospital.

Sainted Irish Mum had a stent put in.

We were in at 10 AM but the hospital schedule is by necessity fluid so she was not in fact wheeled in until 3:30 PM.

Out again shortly before 5 protocol dictated that she remain under observation until 9 PM.

After dropping off some new scrips we finally made it home near 10:30 PM.

The “easy” angioplasty gave the Docs an opportunity for a close look at a major blockage that will remain untreated pending how she does with the new stent.

The risk of an “event” is just too great for what may be a negligible return.

Man I have been doing this a long time it seems, back in 2009 it lead to this incident – TGH – Toronto Generally Hopeless.

That piece ended up in the NatPo and the hospital actually did call and apologize.

How the years fly, I am grateful I am still called upon to see her through days like this.

Please thank Nightmouse, DB Cooper, Osumashi, Black Mamba, Frau and Denyse for keeping it all together for us.
