Herb’s Blog, Herbdate 22211 – 765:
Here’s the haps:
The good part first followed by the equivocating “-ish”.
The stress test, as I said previously, had an abnormality on it. Several professionals looked at it and said, “Yup. She needs an angiogram.” So today they did the angiogram, not realizing the power of prayer, of course, and found nothing at all wrong. Nothing wrong with her heart. Period (for those of you on the other side of the lake or underneath the lake, full-stop). End of paragraph.
Now the -ishy part. As they were deciding that she should go home, her oxygen kept dropping. In Colorado, the minimum reading is supposed to be at least 90. She keeps dropping into the low seventies. Why? We don’t know. Because. Well, hmm…It’s her oxygen dropping that’s causing all these other problems, maybe. What’s causing her oxygen to drop? Umm…maybe all this stuff happening? The bottom line is that they decided she could go home…with oxygen and an appointment with a lung doctor, again. A bruised up arm from having the angiogram thing-a-ma-jig (Sorry, I only know the technical term, but a thing-a-ma-jig is a lot like a whatsit if that helps) run up her vein into her heart. She has to wait a few days before she can lift too much with the arm.
So now we have an oxygen concentrator and tanks and such like paraphernalia at the house, and, of course, Mrs. Herb, which brings us back to the good part of the report.
I will be back a bit later to answer comments but I do want to thank you all for your prayers and kind words.
fingers crossed. hugs and love..
Fingers crossed it’s nothing serious and good that the stress test didn’t show anything, could just be one of those age anomalies. By the way, oxygen dropping is one of the problems with covid, so your wife is probably in the risk group now. Here in Europe they’re recommending vitamin D for preventive measures, which also works for other diseases. So if you can afford to, try to take up to 2000 vitamin D units per day for a while, just in case. Everyone we had in the IC unit here was vitamin D deficient and it’s one of those vitamins we apparently don’t get enough of in regular life, even if you’re out in the sun a lot, so it can’t do anything but good.
Well, thanks. I think D is one of her supplements already.
That’s great! It’s a year for supplements I guess
Every little bit helps, I think.
Thanks for the update.
That is wonderful news about the heart – and we’ll just keep praying for the rest!
God answers prayers! Will continue to pray on the “ish” part.
Thank you ever so much!
We are still praying Keep Laughing when you van
Thank you so much. I can laugh in van, sure.
Well Sometimes I cam type sometimes not
Keeping y’all in my prayers 🙏☺️
Thanks so much!
Good-ish news to here. Thing-a-ma-jig is a totally adequate description for medical equipment.
I always think that ooh-ja-ma-flips are much more worrisome. So pleased to hear the good news. May every day bring new improvements.
Thank you so much! Ooh-ja-ma-flips. I have to try to remember that one.
My gift to you 😊😊😊
This year just keeps happeing … All the best!
Thank you so much!
I’m just getting caught up. Sorry about Mrs Herb and I hope she is getting better. Sending up prayers!
Thanks so much. She is “stable” at this point with a plethora of appointments coming up.
Good news on stable… yuck to appointments. Hope all turns out well
Prayers indeed for Mrs. Herb, you and her health care team to be guided by the Lord and resolve her medical issues.
Thank you so much!
Oh my, you’ve had some scary days. Praying that her oxygen saturation improves and all is well soon.
Thank you very much!
Said a prayer for Mrs. Herb.
Thank you so much!
