Duvet Day after meltdown.

Obviously it had to be a heart painting ❤️

I’ve come to the conclusion that meltdowns are good for a would be artist although thinking about it I would have preferred a large tin of black paint to throw around and then roll in it. …… Hmm that sounds a bit weird so I better stop there, but you get my gist.

The reason for my meltdown……. On Tuesday I went to hospital for an echocardiogram before my appointment on the 18th December with the surgeon after my heart surgery in May …….

The young lady who performed the procedure told me to get undressed and began to probe me with the ultrasound probe thing …… she probed for 25 minutes then said she was going to check that the images were clear enough. Then she came back in with another lady and they both began to look at some of the images on the screen, WHISPERING 😤

The older lady left and the young one said she just wanted a doctor to take a look at something before I left. Five minutes lady she came back and said I was free to go …… I asked her if there was evidence of another Myxoma, she said those magic words….. “ I’m sorry I’m not allowed to say” and I would hear something from my surgeon.

I came out of the appointment feeling a bit shocked, scared and apprehensive but I managed to pull my positivity back. I know they wouldn’t have let me go if it had been anything bad, after my last echocardiogram they kept me in various hospitals for three weeks.

So the reason for my MELTDOWN……. all the digging and probing has obviously disturbed the last seven months healing and it hurts like hell. I’m wondering if she broke some ribs 😳

Anyway I’m having a duvet day, watching TV, painting and googling broken ribs (joke) ☺️

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a day in bed, I’d forgotten just how nice it is to have a duvet day.

Enjoy your day 😇


  1. Keep up the positivity, Elaine. You’re doing the best thing by resting – I’ve gotten quite used to it over the past few weeks myself. Whispering isn’t very professional though, is it? Although the younger person may just be new at the job…

  2. Hi Elaine, I think it’s very inspiring for others like me, putting your thoughts and frustrations into words like you’re doing here. That being said, I hope your appointment on the 18th goes well and that everything’s all healed up!

  3. You know, I wonder sometimes if these medical people have ever been on the other side, so to speak, or are they just heartless with their comments and looks? Waiting two weeks is ridiculous. They know right then and the poor soul they’re working on should know too.

    The system here isn’t any better and going to get worse. I just received a bill for a cancer check I had done in the spring! I am fine but these necessary tests should be paid for by Medicare. I brought this up in response to Fandango’s question a while back and was told I should look into their advantage plans. Sure, if you can afford the $8700+ deductible. . .what? If I could afford that I would not be on Medicare at all! Sorry to rant, but insurance and medical costs are just climbing and it’s not right!

    Any of us who have ongoing health concerns or needed tests to keep us healthy, such as mammograms, prostate checks, etc, should be provided them free. Take the money out of the pharmaceutical profit rewards given to candidates running or already in office. Ok, done.🤨🙄

    1. Yes, I thank God that our healthcare comes out of our taxes! I can’t complain about how I’ve been treated, I knew she wouldn’t tell me anyway. Although saying that when I had the first echocardiogram which showed the large tumour the man who did the procedure did tell me when I asked, but I think that’s because he was so shocked. 🙄 Now it costs more for Mia’s vets Bill.
