Prayers for TexasCowboy!
TexasCowboy has been using his hip injury as an excuse to prevent his friends from shooting his new riot gun.
Well some of us offered to take a look at it for him and he decided both a proffesional and sober opinion might make more sense.
So he found a coupon and now he is going to let some old saw-bones cut on him.
Probably a better idea than letting us do it, but a few folks feelings are still hurt!
Please all say a prayer for our Cowboy that he is back in the saddle again real soon.
I am SO dead come morning.........
Then you will be more than fine through the valley. Praise God!
The hitch in my EKG's gitalong or the chemical they put into your IV to make your heart race like you just finished the original Marathon?
They never told me what the hitch was, apparently nothing important, since they let me have the surgery. I'm just "different" I guess.
As to the chemical, I'll have to look that up, although there are several that they use for that, as there are several radioactive cocktails that that they also put into your veins. (That part was kind of cool, and they did it both before and after the stress test. You can read about it at Centenary Cardiology
The common chemicals used to speed up the heart without the exercise are Dobutamine, which is similar to adrenaline, and Atropine, which may be given with the dobutamine to increase your heart rate. There are others as well, and to tell the truth, I don't remember which one or ones, they used on me. I just remember it being unpleasant in the extreme, but thankfully short.
Night, Lady Jarhead, er Gyrene, er, Marine! And thank you for your service to our country in its time of need.
WHERE do you get your awesome graphics from?
Fascinating, the things yew said behind my sleeping back..:(
Yer wurdz hurt,
man galz... *LadyX pauses for a very quiet sob..* ..
and to my mind comes part of an old song:
"Please don't talk about me when I'm gone,
Though our friendship ceases from now on,
If you can't say anything that's nice,
It's better not to talk at all,
Is my advice,"
Speaking of advice prompted the memory of an old mysterious vegetable compound, its ads bringing blushs to young gurlz and wimmin of yesteryear -- perhaps you two would benefit from use of it, 'stead of geritol??
The Famous Mrs. Pinkham's Cure:
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
You two, too, could look like her!!
Two too? tutu?? --
'kay -- yew two could look like this!!
Come to think of it,
Sometimes laughter *is* the best medicine..:))
Good Morning Lady X!
You go girl,tell 'em what is what!
Good Morning TC!
My prayers are still with you!
C'mon now, Man...are yew some kinda Yankee dude??
In Southern Speak, y'all can mean "all of y'uns" - or "all of JUST yew"..:))
Be more considerate of the fact this thread is for a Gen-u-whine TEXAN!!
Go get 'em Big Guy!
Google for night shift. G of B will take over the night shift tonight? I'm going to be outa town and computerless. Annual Conference. Blech...
"I've learned a lot. Maybe someday God will put me in a situation where I can use that knowledge to help someone else."
Listen up, Cowboy. You're teaching all of us GOBS of good stuff every single day. You've set the high mark for how to be a cool, calm and courageous patient. And, I thank you. BIG TIME!
Little secret. I mentally took you along with me for an anteriogram/surgery number I had done a few weeks ago. I figured you'd weather it like a champ, so I did my best to emulate you.
Whole business was 100% successful, practically pain-free, and amazing. My surgeon used nine (9) computer screens to observe his progress. Kind of like being operated on by NORAD, but hey, it worked!
Hang in there, kiddo. Monday's practically around the corner. Prayers and love continue. You can bet on it.
