Two Down, One To Go

Thank you to each of you who have asked about Mr. P and his status. He's fine and we appreciate your concern.

The heart cath revealed three blockages (and one "iffy" one) in his heart. Two stents were inserted in two of the blockages and he'll have to go back and have one more done in about 3 or 4 weeks. It was a relatively simple procedure, as such things go, and went well. 

I won't say he was a happy bear all day because it's hard to be happy when you have to lie completely flat for four hours in the ICU while your TV is stuck on CNN coverage of the Haiti situation. He was a tad ... er ... grumpy, to tell the truth.

I just kept knitting, on the ubiquitous multidirectional scarf (all the in the right direction, thank you) and on an Opal toe-up sock. An annoying monitor beeped loudly every 7 seconds, relentlessly.  He complained. I knit.

By the time grandson Jake showed up in the evening, he was sitting up, fed, combed, color back, and in almost every other way, Mr. Pug As Usual. I went home. My work was done.

Altogether, a good day.

Thank you again for caring.

Four hours of Haiti!?! Bruce got stuck with FOX news in the cardiac ICU. Cuddly Hubby & I have discussed appropriate viewing choices should one of us ever be stuck. Be sure to have this important discussion with your next of kin.
