It's getting very close to time for my hospital transport to pick me up to take me for admission to Royal Blackburn Hospital today. They told me to be ready for any time after 06:00 to be there for admission at 08:00! I've been up since 4 this morning (Didn't sleep too well as I let things "play on my mind" a little)
Although I have total confidence in the doctor who is going to "treat me" but even so I am now starting to get a little "twitchy"!
I was told when I had the angiogram that they were going to be able to treat me with just a couple of stents (No more difficult for them than a mechanic doing an oil change on a car engine) but when I went last Wednesday for the "pre-assessment" they told me that before the doctor puts any stents in he wants to pass a camera through as the left main stem of my heart which has two restrictions that he want to look closer at from the inside first as well as another one in the "Left Ascending Artery". I don't mind admitting that being told this has got me a little worried.
Anyway, I am not complaining as the damage/disease done to my heart and arteries is mostly self inflicted by years of smoking and not taking care of myself and I know that I have no-one to blame bar myself!
I'm pretty sure that all will go well so here's hoping that I will be able to get back on like soon and say how things went.
