Dave spent most of the day at John C Lincoln Honor Health Hospital (JCL) having an angiogram done. A recent stress test showed some abnormality and Dr Kauffman ordered the angiogram to see if the problem was associated with heart plumbing. It was not. Dr Aquino, who performed the angiogram (Dr Kauffman had a back injury so could not do the procedure), reported that all the large and medium blood vessels around the heart had less than 25% blockage and some had little or none. We haven’t talked with Dr Kauffman yet but I have an appointment with him on Monday afternoon. We don’t know exactly what the stress test told him, and we will learn more about what he wants to do next at that appointment. Continue reading Nothing found
Today was the day for my inguinal hernia repair surgery at Honor Health John C. Lincoln hospital (JCL). Elaine took me to the hospital around 6:30 AM to get prepared for the surgery, scheduled for 8:45 AM, and she brought me home again around 12:30 with the surgery done and recovery completed. Dr Rodriguez reported that the surgery went well and got the job done. I suspected a hernia a few months ago, and the pain has increased over that time. Most of the time the pain levels had been in the 1-2 range but there have been several episodes in the 5-6 range. I am glad to have it done. Continue reading Hernia repair surgery.
We took Shauna to the airport early this morning for her return to her Green River WY home. We had a wonderful visit with her! Now that we don’t travel as much we don’t get to see kids often, and she had never been to our new place in Phoenix though she had visited our previous residence on Sweetwater Ave. Her flight went out at 8:40 from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, so we all had to get up before breakfast to get her there in time – we left home at 6:00. But all went smoothly. Continue reading Bye, bye, Shauna.
