Awake in the night 2
How on earth is anyone expected to get better in hospital when you can’t sleep! Yes I’m in a moaning mood today ☺️ Yesterday I had an angiography which is when they insert a wire through your wrist up towards your heart and inject a dye inside so that they can see all the arteries. If people have blocked arteries they can then put in a stent to allow blood to flow easier.
It was fascinating watching it on the big screen whilst they played 80s music in the background. My arteries appeared ok so that’s one plus. The surgeon came to see me afterwards and said that the images had been sent to the specialist heart hospital and he said he was waiting for them to tell them when they wanted me transferring across.
He explained that I would be having major open heart surgery to remove this mass that had filled one chamber of my heart. I will be in the next hospital for approx 5 days then it takes two to three months to recover at home.
After the procedure they put on this contraption, which has to stay on a couple of hours to make sure the bleeding stops.
I’m finding this all very bizarre to be honest,I don’t feel particularly unwell just really tired from lack of sleep. Hopefully I will get some today 😇 My granddaughter has suggested that I rename my blog the heart lady lol, but I told her that it’s not really something I want to dwell on.
Hope you are all ok and I will hopefully update again when I’m moving to the next hospital
