The good news is that Sweetie's heart has no new blockages and the stents that were installed a few years ago are nice and clear. We were able to pack the patient up after a couple of hours and bring him home to sleep in his own bed. As nice as it is to go away, it's even better to come home.
Of course, now that we know there are no blockages the question remains what is causing the symptoms Sweetie has been having for awhile. After today's experience I have complete confidence in the VA doctors and facilities. I think we'll find the answers we're looking for.
Today has been all about feeling gratitude ...
For all the people who prayed for and surrounded my Sweet and ME with positive energy
For the doctors and nurses who took care of him
For the kind people at the VA who pointed me in the right direction every time I got lost
For cruise control so that I didn't get a speeding ticket
For XM radio
For Linda Lu taking care of Dad and the cats while I was gone
For the hand of the Divine Healer that down and pulled us close
