I'm happy now because I am finally checked in at the urgent care office. I've been having a lot of trouble breathing. Stressing me the fuck out.

Not good. Maybe some sort of allergic reaction?

Turns out congestive heart failure is a real thing. Do not fuck with it.

Well, shit, V...:(

They weren't just trying to scare the shit out of ya like they do sometimes?

glatt 05-17-2017 02:16 PM

wow. I'm sorry man. That sucks.

What about treatment? Are you going for the traditional blood letting; or, should we start saving our leaches for you?

I suppose there are other ways to bring your systemic pressure down; but, they won't be as much fun.

Lets see, my Pacemaker/Defibrillator combo was $43,000 (plus installation:rolleyes:) and keeps everything working together. Plus if my heart stops it gives me a big shock. That hasn't happened so I don't know how big but I was warned if someone was touching my... uh, touching me, they'd get a big shock too. Gotta get the battery replaced every five years or so, but other than that, merrily I roll along.

I think that's the worst case scenario if you stay on top of it, so don't freak out and stay proactive on this. You can do this.

Well shit BigV! Do what the doc says. You'll get through this. x

This is not generally the type of thing I come to the happy thread for, but I won't give you shit because your heart might not be able to take it. :( Hope the symptoms are relieved soon.

Point well taken.

The initial post was simply true, and the follow up posts were here because it was easier to maintain the continuity through my phone in technologically and logistically difficult circumstances. I closed the loop just now, again, on *happy* point.

A new, different thread is due.

"Earache My Eye" is playing on the radio as I post this!:devil:

Today a dentist named Dr. Sager is making me very happy! He's in Bozeman, MT and I will be singing his praises for YEARS at this rate.

My "difficult" root canal turned out to be way worse than expected. The root of the tooth in question forks deep in the upper jaw bone, but the nerve canals in mine didn't follow the normal route. Turns out there was also a not-supposed-to-look-like-that partial THIRD nerve path connecting the forks! When he hit that part and it hurt, he put a Novocaine shot directly into my hard palate, not gums but the super-thin tissue on the roof of the mouth.

In under 24 hours I could no longer feel where that injection went in! He managed to get enough anesthetic into that terrifying spot for an injection without leaving any bruising--and I know there was Novocaine in the needle because the partial nerve path immediately went numb.

I'm approaching 72 hours out from the procedure. The bone around that extensive work no longer hurts AT ALL. And in a couple of weeks I get A REAL CROWN, since it turns out I have the fancy-a$$ Medicaid dental that doesn't put a cap on annual dental work costs and WILL pay for a porcelain crown or two a year.

Plus on the way back I got to visit the Mineral Museum at Montana Tech, where among other spectacular exhibits they have a full Siberian cave bear skeleton (his name's Boris)!
