The Day

The Beginning:

Today is my scheduled coronary angioplasty.

I arrived at the hospital 30 minutes early... much too early I hazard a guess because the surgical department responsible wasn't even open. Eventually when it did I was led, along with other patients, to beds prepared for us.

The doctor came to speak privately with each patient and have us sign a patient  consent form. Risks, concerns, etc were addressed prior to signing and questions addressed.

I was given one of those awkward hospital gowns, the kind that has your arse exposed and feeling cold.

Also disposable underpants!

After changing, I am sitting and waiting on the actual procedure. Nervous a bit but still confident!

Next: The Procedure.
