I woke up, wrapped my house coat around me, put my slippers on and made a mad dash to the thermostat to turn up the heat….mmmmm…the warm air pours out over me as I position myself strategically under the vent. Until…..it didn’t…"Oh Crap"! Call the repairman, hop in the shower to get ready to head up to 2 appointments at the Florida Hospital Heart Center. The water is warm but as soon as I climb out it is crazy cold! “Oh Crap” I made it to the clinic, almost on time and the ICD is working perfectly but the incision site is showing some suspicious signs, my body is not liking the ICD “Oh Crap”. If you are counting…that makes 3 “Oh Craps” and it is not yet 10:00 AM. Monday morning is not looking good!
It is now late Monday afternoon, the repairman has come and gone, The heater is humming, the incision has been medicated and seriously taped up, my feet are up, bra is off and I am binge watching (and really liking) “Mozart in the Jungle”….The count is 3 “Oh Craps” and and 1 “Meh”. It was officially a rocky start, I never reached “Excited” but I am... after all… a gem!
