"...wE mUst bE thE chAnGe wE wiSh tO sEE iN thE wOrld..." K.G.


hi peeps... just when i thought things were going ok and i was on vaycay for 4 months... the shit hits the fan once more in my life. last Friday when i saw my new doc that i like, he had ordered a stress echo test for me due to intermittent tightness and shortness of breath I'd been having. well, i had that test this morning.

did you know they sandpapered the spots on my chest where the leads go to monitor my heart? hell yeah, baby.. i said WTF you doing, bitch... hey what is that, it kinda hurts a lil and the tech showed me that she had sandpaper and i said well, please don't sand my tan off.. then once my skin was nice and raw she wiped it down with alcohol. that fucking burned like fire. it stung a lil...

i lasted one and a half minutes on the treadmill until i felt faint and winded... turns out i have a blockage in one of my arteries, mild atrial stenosis in one of valves, and i am having a heart cath. tomorrow morning @ 1000. if the blockage is too big, or not in a good spot to repair, i will have to have a C.A.B.G. which is open heart by-pass surgery.


the doc said he wont know if its fixable or how bad it is until he gets in there tomorrow. if he can place the stent, i will have to spend the night in the ICU unit for observation... i said, WHA? do i look THAT cute when i sleep that they wanna watch? weirdoes..

can you fucking believe this is happening to me? i can't. it has literally been one thing after another and this just tops the cake. i will deal with whatever happens after this but come on, man... enough is enough.

i want to ask you peeps to pray they are able to fix my blockage tomorrow so i don't have to have my chest opened. fucking open heart surgery will just ruin my delicate cleavage..


[yes, that is moi]

i have such anxiety about the procedure tomorrow that i asked the doc for some ativan. he thought i said buy me a mini van and said, sorry but no. kiddin. he gave me a script for some... which i will take to sleep tonight and in the morning. I'll be brave once i get there, it's the waiting that is always the hard part for me.

i just want to continue my vaycay without any other problems... THIS is what I'd rather be doing...

[moi again]


or this


[ordering pizza]

or this


or even this...



but please, just PLEASE don't cut me chest open!

bloody hell woman. This is ridiculous. Fingers and toes crossed for you but it's good that they found this out isn't it?
Good luck.

Oh my hell. C, I'm so sorry you just keep getting shit thrown at you. I can't even believe this. My family, on BOTH sides, have had MAJOR heart issues, so I'm all too familiar with what you're having done tomorrow. I will be praying that the stent will fix things. Oh, my sweet friend, this whole situation makes me so sad. I'll be anxiously awaiting an update. As a matter of fact, you should have Diane post one, since you probably won't be in any condition to do it, but you can't leave us all sitting on pins and needles, ya know. Good luck tomorrow.

Awe NO! Hot damn and pile o'shit!!!

I'm so sorry you have to go through this hell... wish i were there to visit you and hold your hand.

you'll pull through, you've had enough piled on your plate as it is - you deserve a break!! On the bright side at least the problem was discovered before it lead to a heart attack, oui?

That corgi :) said...

Oh C I am so sorry! but I'm glad that you are getting it taken care of and went through with the test etc! hugs to you........Lord watch over her and protect C and we ask that you give her comfort and peace as she waits for the test and we also ask that everything would be able to be fixed without having to have open heart surgery, in Jesus' name I pray......


Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh C, this is so scary. I am sorry you are having to go through this.
BUT on the upside: At least this Dr. found the issue BEFORE it really hurt you. Right? I mean, a blockage can kill you with little or no notice.
I will be praying for a good outcome and a full recovery. I will also pray that your cleavage stays nice too.
Hugs to you....

ps. I know your family will take good care of you when you get home too.

Jude said...

C, I'll be thinking about you all day and sending good mojo, thoughts, prayers...good everything your way. It's going to turn out a-ok, I know it cause nothing is going to change that perfect cleavage!

I hope we hear from you soon.

hugs and luv

ChiTown Girl said...

jo.irish.rose said...

Jason, as himself said...

Yikes! That is terrible. I am so sorry you're having to go through this. I hope the next post is good news!

Sending good thoughts your way....certainly wouldn't want to mar that awesome rack of yours! :)

More shit for your books. Sorry, but glad they caught it though. I had a once had a long period of time where I thought that crap was all that I was handed. It really was, and eventually it ended and I think it will eventually end for you also. I got your back and know I will be there with you in thought.
Love ya.

Tracey Axnick said...

C, my friend, I am just now reading this. What a scary 36 hours you have had! I'm thankful to hear that everything went well and the stent is all that was needed... I will keep you in my prayers for a full recovery.

Thankfully this was caught early... I guess that is the "glass half full" way of looking at this.

Keep your chin up, girl... things are BOUND to get better!!!!

ps... and I'm glad your boobies get to stay fabulous. ;)
