Sounds like he is on the mend

"Well kids, I made it through the procedure OK. I had 2 big blockages, one that was fixed. I heard the number 7 mentioned as the number of stents put in me to fix the blockage.
I may be out of here tomorrow afternoon." from Facebook 4 hours ago.

Default RE: Ron Olson is the hospital..

Thanks all! I got back home late this morning and am mostly tired right now. One thing that you can't get in a hospital is rest.
If you haven't seen the other thread, here's a little background.
Tuesday afternoon I was getting ready ot head into work early and had to go to the bathroom. While in there I started getting bad cramps, sweating, shaking and my skin turned red like I'd been out in the sun all day. I yelled to my son to call 911 and get an ambulance here. In the meantime I had to pay another quick visit to the potty. I got to the ER and was getting treated for whatever I had and after being in there about 1-1/2 hours I started having a heart attack! Damn, talk about bad luck and good timing! I went to one of the best hospitals in the midwest for heart work. They had me in for a CAT scan to try to find out what was going on in my abdomen and found something else amiss so I'm going to have more testing done on that situation next week. Anyway, I was run into the Cath Lab Wednesday morning and not even messing around with a scheduled Cardio-lite stress test and had a lot of work done. One vessel was blocked and a bypass graft also shut down. I missed out on most of the procedure as normally you're fully concious but this time I got dosed with some really good stuff so I was half out of it.
I promised a few pix of the nurses but most weren't cooperative so sorry guys! All I got was a shot of my room.

That's just the remote for the TV, lights and to call a nurse.
I missed out on all of the fun up there as the week before the cops had to seal off the floor as some nut job tried to bust out a window and jump out. It's 4 floors up and straight down.

I'm doing good right now and finally got a couple of nights of good sleep. Finally got down to the toy room today for a while to work on the gas rigger.

Just an update.
I was supposed to go in Monday for an MRI but found out today that it's a no-go as I have an ICD (defibrillator) in my chest and the imaging machine will mess it up. Now I have to wait until at least Monday to find out their next move.
When talking to the nurse at my Cardiologists office the other day I found out only 4 stents were installed, not 7 like I thought that I was told in the Cath Lab. I was kinda out of it anyway in there as I don't remember a lot from that procedure.
It looks like I'll be going back to outpatient therapy again, treadmill, recumbent stationary bike and weight-lifting 3 times a week.

Yeah, I've got a pulse and a little brainwave activity!
I finished my cardio-therapy sessions last week and that part is looking good. The tests on my left kidney has been done twice so far and have another scheduled in July as 2 spots were found on my left one. They don't want to go in and do a biopsy unless they have to which is fine with me as my doc said that they can do damage going in there.
