I have to say - it felt rather lonely coming home late last night all by myself.
Louis Dean adds so much interest, richness and excitement to my life.
I admit to being a little bit melancholy with him in the hospital and me at home.
That probably accounts for why I did not sleep much over 3 hours last night and since I had only had around 4 hours the night before - I have been really tired today!
So has Louis Dean!
Not only did he have a chemical stress test along with additional blood work - but he was given a flu shot and a pneumonia shot! The flu shot gave him some side effects of aches and pains today so he was not the happy camper!
I HAVE to tell you about his stress test, though!! They did it in two parts and he was already down in the radiation lab when I got there this morning. He was wheeled back in my two sweet CUTE nurses and they were all laughing. What happened was - they parked his wheelchair smack dab in front of the treadmill. In front of the treadmill was a screen with a beautiful forest scene and a path.
Louis Dean said, "I hate treadmills!!"
The nurse said, "Well, there's going to be a picture of a naked lady running in front of you and you are going to RUN as fast as you can to catch her!!"
HE said, "I gave up chasing naked ladies a long time ago!!!"
Those Baylor Angels have a wonderful sense of humor!!
The tests were all run and all the results were in but ONE!
Everything was looking good but we couldn't go home until the last test was read.
This fellow was REALLY wanting to go HOME!!!
So was I!!
By this time I was pretty worn out so I hopped up in the hospital bed - since HE wasn't using it - and ended up taking a tiny nap! Earlier, LD and I were BOTH propped up in there! That kind of surprised the nurse who came in to take his vitals!
There's always something interesting to see so matter where you are.
Lots of pigeons flock around the tall hospital buildings.
I noticed this fake owl and wondered about it.
One of the nurses explained that the pigeons do not always realize these are windows and go swooping down through the corridors.......
and smash right into the glass!!!
At long last Louis Dean was released!!!!!
His heart is GOOD!
He has follow up appointments with two doctors next week but his cardiologist told him he had been working TOO hard for TOO long causing lots of muscle cramps/pain/whatever!
The first thing we did when we got home was to take up our spot on the driveway and prop up our feet!!!
I can't tell you how relieved I am!!!
It's good to be home and it's wonderful to know that Louis Dean is a strong man with a strong heart!
He just needs to remember he's not 65 any more!
I have read him all the comments, messages, and emails and it has been so much fun to watch him smile and laugh! He knows who YOU are and said to thank you so much for all your prayers and kind words!
Now we are going to continue to watch back to back episodes of Alaskan Bush People and then
GO TO BED!!! We are both so very TIRED!!!
