Tom's home and pretty soon life will be back to normal. Turns out he had 95% blockage in one vessel--everything else was clear. How strange is that? He says that must be the bacon artery.
He's stented and now has 100% blood flow in that vessel. Yay, Dr. Tracey! Tom should feel a lot better, once he gets past the tiredness from spending five days in the hospital. And how lucky is it that he got out in time to play poker this afternoon? (He's not allowed to lift anything heavier than 10 lbs. for the next week so I told him to limit his winnings. He says the most weight he'll probably carry is bringing the Biggest Loser trophy home. Yeah, they have one.)
And now I can get back to posting about funner things. I haven't even visited my studio for a week. Probably covered in cobwebs by now. Maybe I'll dig my way through this afternoon.
Ta, y'all. And thanks for all your good wishes.
