Correction, it's ALWAYS time to buy a new gun!!
I'm with Terry, good thing to get the Doc involved! Better to be wrong and well than ignore and cause more sever problems.Thanks, Terry. I think unloading here helped me decide a good argument, and just lucky she then gave me a good time to use it. The hospital's message site shows she got an echocardiogram at 6 AM. Don't know any more, not even a room number yet. I left the ER at 2 AM, test was at 6, they never let you sleep.
Praying for you guys! Hope all goes well!Just got home from hospital visit. Final verdict seems to be 90% sure wife has a narrowed heart valve, I think the upper left. So they have a tentative surgery date for Tuesday to replace it. They need two more tests, and still to get more fluid from her swollen legs and feet first. I hope these high-tech valves are miracles, doctor acts like it's a routine thing. Years ago they actually used pig valves.....
She just started Medicare in December, and her supplement is called Part G. Supposed to beat the Parts A & B they constantly hawk on TV. I don't know, but she researched a lot before deciding. She says it covers everything that Medicare doesn't ; A & B have more exceptions.
Work has me on leave of absence until FMLA kicks in, I just got the forms today. There goes the paycheck, but I keep the job, which I probably won't go back to anyway. I'm 65 in November, so might as well go for retirement. I was hoping to work another 14 months for the bigger SS check.
Poured rain all day, and more until tomorrow noon. Sure didn't help my mood.
