Awake in the night!

I never thought I would write an awake in the night post in a hospital bed but I am! I was admitted to hospital on Thursday with stomach pains and around eleven pm they gave me a CT scan. At 12.30 am a specialist appeared at the bottom of my bed to tell of the findings. My stomach was ok 👍 but they had noticed something showing up in my heart so I was to have an eco scan.

The eco scan revealed that I had a Atrial Myxoma in the right hand chamber of my heart. Suddenly I became a celebrity 😳 They had never seen it at the hospital before and had to get in touch with a leading heart hospital to ask their advice.

I was transferred to another hospital for more tests which I waiting for now and then I will be transferred for open heart surgery because they have to remove this thing attached to my heart. To be honest I’m not really worried about it because they tell me that I should feel well again after I have this operation.

They also said the surgeons will all want to perform this operation because it’s basically a one in 250.000 people that actually have this problem and it amazing that they found out about it.

Obviously 🙄 I always knew I was special but not to this extent. I’m thinking I might be selling tickets soon and signing autographs 😏 I will let you know more as and when I can. This is just to let my good friends on WordPress know where I am.

P.S. Was it a coincidence that I painted a tree with hearts on recently 😇

    • I agree Raili, perhaps I need to start trying to raise money for the British Heart Foundation 😳 the specialist came again today and said he didn’t think I needed both the tests I’m down for due to such a clear image. I asked him how big it was, he replied it fills the chamber it’s in. Joking I asked if I would lose weight when it was removed. He replied well you will be able to move and breathe better. He definitely thinks this is the reason for my liver damage. It’s a angelic intervention that it was spotted on the CT scan 😇😇😇😇😇
