Unbreak My Heart

July 13th, 2023 at 09:10 am

Yeah, I'm being flippant with my title, but I think I am allowed to be, and I thought it was more appropriate than Total Eclipse of the Heart, which was a strong contender.  Today is my heart procedure.  My check-in is at 1:30, so less than twelve hours.  My procedure should start around 2:30, but will probably start later, since everything always runs late at any hospital procedure or surgery I've ever been to for myself or anyone else.

I don't know how long I will be in recovery either.  It can be six hours.  I am going to try to sleep in until noon.  I have to wake up and take a pill at 6:30, but can hopefully fall right back to sleep, so I don't have to worry about feeling hunger from fasting all morning, and then I have to take two pills at 12:30.  These are for the surgery.

I am a little scared, because, you know, wire in the heart.  And then there is the fact that I woke up from anesthesia last time in pain and I remember it, so I really don't want that to happen again.  But the insurance is going to cover the whole thing, so at least we don't have to worry about the money side of things.  I hope it is easy and they can fix things with this procedure.  I just want to get my life back.
