Being sprung as soon as paper work is done (nurse says could take a couple hours). Doc says good thing I came in when I did, as artery was practically shut, HOWEVER all the other arteries are in great shape surprisingly he said just the one was bad and that was enough to kill you. But I have dodged another bullet! Would have been a heck of a note to have died of heart disease after surviving the original cancer prognosis!!
Thank you all, each and everyone for your kind words and encouragement, although that study stud of a male nurse never showed up! Love you, my cancer family!

Darned if I haven't breathing troubles and a burning pain lately. So here I sit waiting on an angiogram in the morning, stress test showed abnormalities. Well, don't that bite?
Anyhow any crossed fingers and toes etc. would be appreciated.
Winter Marie

Not too bad news, was diagnosed with unstable angina. They did a stress test and ultra-sound and said that's abnormal and that's abnormal. So was scheduled for an angiogram this morning (Monday morning, I have already lost track of time here,) at any rate they did the angiogram and had to balloon and give me a metal stent. I am doing fine waiting for the daylight hours to get here so I can go home. It appears the incredible pain that I've continued for the past few months in my right arm has gone away since they put the stent,, go figure it was due to my heart and not cancer (thank goodness!) I am doing well thanks to all those good vibes, crossed appendages and prayers. Thank you so much!
Winter MarIe (ps Still waiting on that handsome nurse!)

Not going home as promised, looks like one more day here. Nurse gave me a shot in the stomach after swearing it wouldn't hurt. She lied, I now call her Nurse Rachet, so in return she sweetly asked " You do know you get another one tonight? ARG!!!

    Oh, it is hard to be

    Oh, it is hard to be patient! I will hope and pray that you will soon be resuming your life and this will just be a bleep in the screen. Hang In. After a cancer diagnosis, we all default to worse case scenario until we remember that our positive attitude and strength has served us well. When we can't access those resources, we can lean on the strength of others here.

    We'll be waiting to hear how you're doing.

    Seems she is been operated and placed an stent somewhere (in a
    vein I suppose as she was talking about chest pain) it seems surgery was successful ,I have seen it on her FB.
    Let's pray for a complete and fast recovery.
