Whew . . .
I just got out of the CVCU last Friday, late. I was there for observation and testing after not doing well with a chemical stress test. I found out that I was being released when I came back from the rest room. J told me I should get dressed and that he thought I had been there long enough. Everyone laughed at my "Huh" face and we got outa there but in due hospital time.
The most fun was taking off the oxygen monitor from my right forefinger. If you ever have to wear one, put it on your non-dominant hand as it has about ten inches of wiring and a plug that dangle from it when it is disconnected from the large machines.
I had many, many little connector-patches stuck on to my chest, shoulders and abdomen. Everybody who needed to use a set of sticky connectors seemed to require a different kind and left the other ones stuck on just in case they could be useful. There is a stubborn rectangle of adhesive near my waist that is slowly yielding to shower gel, body lotion and just plain oil. Whatever was used to adhere that one could probably have been used by NASA to stick heat proof tiles on the space shuttles.
The cats seemed glad to see me and I was more than happy to see their furry faces.
