    More in depth update....Friday was the most terrifying day of my life. The initial surgery went well and I was alert and in the CICU when I started getting nauseous, dizzy and everything going black. Turns out I was having massive internal bleeding, so they had to rush me into emergency surgery early Saturday morning to get that under control, which they were luckily able to do.

    Wow UKMF, that was close.

    I am sure I speak for a lot of us when I say I lost sleep thinking about you.

    Wow. Glad they were able to fix that, but it sounds incredibly scary.

    Here's to hoping you continue toward a full recovery.

    Yesterday was another rough day. Was woken up at 5 am and told I was on no food or liquid because they wanted to do a cath due to me having an episode overnight of consecutive irregular heartbeats. They wanted to check my coronary arteries to make sure they weren’t kinked and causing stoppages in blood flow. If they were, I’d have to be opened up a third time and have it repaired.

    Unfortunately the medication I now have to be is an anti clotting medication so they had to get my clotting factor back within normal to do the cath. What they initially thought would be a procedure done around noon, didn’t get done until after 6 pm.

    Very long and frustrating day without food or drink, but thankfully the results came back that my coronaries were perfectly clear and all is well.

    This morning they came and removed my scar covering and the last of my chest tubes so I’m finally not strapped down to tubing and wiring! Everything seems to be pointing to a discharge this weekend!
