Room 444

Play that number!

I had my catherization today. It just wore me out. They picked me up from JFK this morning at 12:00 am and brought me here to RWJUH...Kept me up asking questions that were already in my files. By the time I finally fell asleep it was time to go to the Cath Lab.

I do have some blockage but it can be treated with meds and I will be getting a pace maker down the road.

I have yet to speak with a new neurologist for my brain stuff.

Now for a nap!

Keep it coming DOM. Enquiring minds want to know! Best wishes.

Grace said...

Let them ask questions - that why there's a good chance they'll get it right. Naps are good. Take care, get better, come home.

Well, you are in a great hospital for all the stuff you need done. You'll be rewired and back among us in no time. We're thinking about you and praying for you every day!

Stacie's Madness said...

((hugs)) again.

Joel Klebanoff said...

As long as you're able to answer their questions, that's got to be good sign. Get better soon.

Sandee said...

They make it difficult to sleep don't they. Always something that needs doing. Try to get some rest Crotchety. Just get well. You hear? I thought you did. :)

Don said...

Hell, just go to sleep. If they keep waking you, go crazy on their head and claim it's because your old neurologist messed up the meds. Sorry.

Deb said...

Hospitals are the worst places to try to recover from anything.

Glad the cardiac cath went well and your prognosis is good. Scratch that off The List of Evil Things To Be Done To Crotchety.

Look forward to your updates as always.

PJ said...

thank you for the updates, i'm happy to hear that things are going well. you will be back in no time. healing still being sent your way.

ettarose said...

Hi doll face! Cardiac Caths' are fun aren't they? My hubs has had three, also 7 stints, in his legs and heart, just saying you will be fine. I posted about you and made you a sign. Make sure you scream loud enough for them to hear this; "Leave the anus alone!" Cannot wait for you to be back at home ordering the Mrs around. Lots of love!

thinkinfyou said...

Well that good news. Meds aren't that bad.Hell if I remember correctly ,I think Viagra was created first for heart problems...so maybe you've got some GREAT side effects to look forward to!!!

Swirl Girl said...

really hoping your feeling better sooner than later!

dizzblnd said...

Thank you for the update. I won't have internet for a while, but you are always in my pryers

Lipstick said...

Hey Crotchety! I am happy to hear from you! That has to be some type of good omen or something to be in a room with the same three numbers.

HR Diva said...

Joe, it was good seeing you, I hope you were able to nap, you need your sleep.
If you need anything i can help you with, please call me.

Hugs, MB

LL said...

Just fill your mind with thoughts of young hot nurses and your rest will be a pleasant one.

Still wishing you the best.

Janna said...

As always, we're worried about you over here.

And when I say "we," I mean me and the cats.

I think that last series of meows was asking you something about nurses and pork rolls, though it might also have been about me needing to scoop the litter box.

Get plenty of sleep and get well soon.

Quirkyloon said...

Aw DOM! Wishing this was a done deal for you, but ever so grateful for the updates.

Prayers and good wishes being sent....NOW!

FishHawk said...

Oh, you just gotta get to feeling better soon. Did you hear the news? TONY ROMO AND JESSICA SIMPSON HAVE BROKEN UP!!! YAHOO!!! Yep, my Cowboys are headed straight to the Super Bowl to win it all AGAIN for sure now.

In fact, there is no need for any of the other teams to even break training camp this year. That is, of course, except for the one team from the AFC that picked the short straw. For my Cowboys will have to actually play against somebody to make it official. It's in the rule book. I looked it up.

Lauren said...

You must be on a lot of meds. Picked you up from JFK to go to RWJ...WTF?

nipsy said...

Why is it that when it comes to the important stuff, they always wait until you are either drugged out of your gord, or half asleep before they ask? Glad the cath went well, I've done a few of those in my time, always wincing in pain as I did..its one of those acts you wouldn't wish on anyone other then your worst enemy.. Now hurry up and get better, I don't like having any particular blogger on my mind this much..

Kathy said...

Glad to hear from you Crotchety. I agree with Deb, the hospital is the last place you can get any rest or recovery. Get home as soon as you can.

Prayers and good vibes coming your way!

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

Keeping you in my prayers.

Keep writing and maintain that positive crotchety attitude!

memphisdonna said...

((((((Joe & Mrs.))))))
You've reminded me to be grateful for all that I have and not take any of it for granted.
Glad to see that you're headed in the right direction ~ just keep getting better.
Lots of folks holding you & your sweetie in their hearts.
Never forget how much you are loved!

Pricilla said...

GET A GOOD NEUROLOGIST. I can't stress this enough.

I went through some bad ones before I found a good one. At least RWJ is a good hospital.

If, god forbid you need a good neurosurgeon I can give you a recommendation.

MikeWJ at Too Many Mornings said...

All I can say is OUCH! I don't even like thinking about catheters. But who does? And tell them to leave your brain alone, the mofos.

Sheila said...

God Bless... will keep you in my thoughts..

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

Thanks for keeping us up to date, Crotchety! The Nanny Goats say hello! Take care and get well soon!

Jason said...

Great site man. I was wondering if we could possible exchange links. Let me know what you think about my humor blog.

Bee said...

What the hell? What's with you getting all wonky while I;m gone?

My thoughts are with you, Joe.

Jenn Thorson said...

You're getting a pacemaker down the road? Shouldn't you be getting that down the chest cavity instead? :) I know those nurses have been messing with all the roads, lately. But still.

Get some rest, Crotchety. You've been through a lot. Plus a little bad TV and infomercials should help.

Collette said...

Glad that the blockage can be treated with meds. Good luck with the new brain doc! He'll never figure you out if we can't by now! Get well soon!

lot 2 learn said...

Great to hear from you.
I was in the garden this evening picking a few tomatos and thought about you.
Figers crossed down here for a speedy recovery

Marie said...

Shit, we've got to get you out of there before they kill you!!!

I would love to talk. I will cheer you up with funny stories. As soon as I think of some. lol
