well, On June 18th I head for shunt revision, this time with a programmable one. (no magnets for me, means no MRI's anymore) woe betide. The other more important news is my hubby is doing swell.
He had a heart attack on May 16th or rather they call it Ventricular Tachacardia. Was in hobbithall for 12 days and ended up having a pacemaker/debibulator installed (no magnets for him either)
Our kiddies have been great, helping with driving as Bob is not allowed to drive until check up on the 18th. Ya ya same day as my brain surgery. Oh well. But it all is good and I have been quite firm in 'making him sit, stay and be quiet' His heart rate went up to 282 thereabouts. and much to his shock....he was zapped before they could sedate him. Even cutting off his clothes (one of which was his bestus Grundy Lake fleece zipped sweat. He was at work, up on the travel lift, (he works in a marina) he felt dizzy (no pain) came down, rested went back up came down, then one of the customers was wondering why Bob was not yelling at his staff as they were trying to move a big house boat and well, lets say Bob barks. This customer was a paramedic and immed called 911.
He came over to get me, telling me "Bonnie, I really need you to come with me" now at my age......havent heard that one in eons. hahah I did not know this man...but he saw my face, and immed said Oh my name is so and so, I am a friend of Bob's and he has been taken to hospital. You must come now.
MAN WHAT A SHOCK but I quickly grabbed stuff to wear, (important things like my WINTER COAT? duh...... and away we went. Had managed to call DD who in turn called her bro, and they all met us at the emmerg.
It has def been a May month I do not wish to repeat. This is why I have been silent. We still hope to go off into the woods and fight bears. Me with bald head, and Bob with strange metal thing in his chest. (now he has a larger boob) hahah
