So I will get to replies as soon as I can. At least pics for the next update are all uploaded.

And thanks to everyone for your concern about Denny. He is doing well. Mostly he is just freaked out a bit and I don't think he'll fully relax until he sees the cardiologist here.
UGH! Thinking of all your parents that is a lot and see a hint that there is drama about the June trip? When will Denny see the local cardiologist? I can see where he would be anxious for that.

Oh my word, Mary Ellen! That is not the kind of vacation adventure any of us are looking for!! Good for you for "standing up to" to ER doc and insisting Denny be admitted. Thank you both for sharing the story. Scary but important to remember.

And more drama on the horizon for June?? I hope it is resolved quickly.

Cynthia - I'm always impressed with how much you can pack into a day. . Hate departure day but agree a later flight is a nice way to ease the pain and hurrah for not having to check out of the room!

Oh MaryEllen, when it rains it pours doesn't it?

I am sorry about Denny and although I'm very glad he's doing well... that must have been really frightening for both of you... especially being away from home... The irony of what you do and who you work with... just adds an extra element of frustration to the whole thing...

& your mother-in-law and father...

Sending you good thoughts and wishes for a better week ahead...

Mary Ellen - you are having a tough time at the moment.


Thinking of you and hope all the parents are doing okay and any other dramas are sorted quickly for you.

Take care

MEK, what a scary situation with Denny and I am glad you persisted in having him checked out further. I went through that with Mark and it is not fun.

I will pray for continued improvement for Denny.
Thanks Kathy! I know you have been through this because I remember you mentioning it. Denny is doing fine. He is just a little "gun shy" right now. I think he will feel better after he sees the cardiologist here which is scheduled for tomorrow.

So glad they were able to handle the situation and you could still enjoy some of your trip!!!
I really hope that never happens to anyone. Really. I am pretty sure we just would have been back in the ED. But I would hate to think that we would be back with an actual heart attack. I knew he wasn't haven't a heart attack. He was having angina, so to send me out of there meant nothing.

I am so happy we were there late at night and took the time to get all those pictures. I think that was my first late EMH. I always figured it would be much too crowded, but it really wasn't. It was perfect.

I love OMD and my younger son loves it more than I do. He could seriously spend 90 minutes in there looking at every detail. It's truly a wonderful place and its sad its not more popular. I think the film is a must see.

Not the best time to need a stent, but it could have been so much worse so we are very thankful!

When I read your comment a few days ago I thought to myself "Thank you!" I have an 11 hour drive home with a man who is having exertional chest pain and I have to get on the phone and find someone to stress or cath him then pack up a villa that I've been in 36 hours. Doh!

And quite honestly. I don't think I acted anxious. She hasn't seen ANXIOUS! I would call it forceful and tactful. Errrrrr! She was young, that's the only thing I can say in her defense.

Good for you, but how unfortunate that you had to do that. I always try to listen to someone who has been dealing with a chronic disease. They have the most experience managing it and at that point its "textbook versus real life". I feel like the ER really has this mentality of treat em and street em. Sometimes it was too obvious and these are both good examples.

Thanks! I am glad he was admitted and everything worked out without the added stress of having to leave and return.

I guess if you somehow don't inherit the genes you are in good shape, but it you do get the coronary artery disease gene you really have to pay attention.

I am very happy that he only needed a stent because the alternative was very terrifying. He may need heart surgery at some point in his life, but HHI definitely wasn't the time.

Thanks for your support.

That worked out really well and I just finished uploading all my photos. I certainly made up for lost time. I think I took about 750 post stent.

He had one stent and, yes, I agree that he bought himself extra time. He is just upset because he was the "first" out of his 4 other siblings and he is the one who exercises the most. Bottom line is - they don't know what their coronary anatomy is and now he does.

I don't know why communication is poor in health care. Sometimes the provider is a poor communicator, sometimes their knowledge is lacking so they are afraid of having to answer too many questions they feel unprepared for, and sometimes its literally a time crunch. Give the minimal and move on.

Accepting the "new normal" is a good way to phrase it.
