my kids took everything great...my daughter has been my biggest help....the extra kids in the house are useless....but they will be history as soon as i can get them out of here....drs are loving the progress.....i am up walking as much as i can take....did some leaf raking over weekend...tho not a lot.....still have to see the cardiologist 5 weeks after surgery.....but all is good....
Well been talking g to social workers...hospital personnel and so forth.... Seems they lime to get u off the vent asap...within 6 he's after surgery if possible. Also...the update the family each major step. I'm in the room I will be in after surgery... Love the nurses and all..
my last day of work was Thursday.....had to stop working due to the fact that i was just too tired by the time i got home. it was starting to worry the kids i was looking that bad ....i can really feel how my heart is effected now....which worries me. Cant wait til tuesday when i see the Dr next. so i can let him know whats going on. I sure hope they do the surgery soon...i am so tired of being exhausted. have been prepping all the kids (even tho they are adults ....they are young) on what to expect when i get home.
i dont know how well my kids will handle this.... My son is only 21 and my daughter is 32 (emotionally she is not really all that stable). If they see me with all those tubes connected to me i know it will scare the hell out of my son. we just lost my stepdaughter 3 years ago Feb. and she was connected to a lot of tubes.... I am usually their strength and courage. but i will be the one who is down. I can only hope that things go well enough i am not on all those tubes long. I will have my adopted daughter and one of my closest friends with me there at the hospital. I also have 2 extra kids who want to be there but emotionally not sure they can handle it either. They belong to my other adopted daughter. They came to live with me last summer.
I know leading up to this surgery i find every day i get more and more exhausted easily... I am not used to that.
i really dont know much about this, only that i have been facing this surgery for the last 4 years. and the day is finally here. I go for my angiogram on March 17th 2015, and they will schedule surgery from there. i have no clue what to expect. but i do know the surgeon and cardiologist i am dealing with are the best in my area with out having to travel a couple hours or more. they say i will be off work 6-8 weeks....but wonder if they will think differently when they realize i am not in a typical job for women. there are many questions i have, like about driving after the surgery and so forth
