Maunie & the hospital

Maunie has been in the hospital recently..She might have to get a Pacemaker or take some sort of blood thinner medicine..She is not crazy about the blood thinner, neither am i...Isn`t bloodthinner medicine the same stuff that they kill mice and rats with in mousebait? I would not take that stuff personally..Would you take it?I think i would rather have the Pacemaker if given the chance...Her heart problem may be the problem why she fell down in front of a store the other day, we really don`t know right now...She is a little sore from that incident..She is at home resting right now..She had to get out of the hospital before she tried to strangle any hospital workers or family members...Take care Maunie...

Thank you for letting us know Kim. Oh, I'm so upset. I was just writing an award post nominating her for A Million Dollar Friend Award and thanking everyone here at the Blue Ribbon Bloggers, so I stopped to get the link. Do you know how to get in touch with her? I can't find Maunie's blog address or e-mail add. and I would like to send her my best wishes.

Also, every Blue Ribbon Blogger has been nominated for the Million Dollar friend Award on A Nice Place In The Sun, so congrats. The post should be up within the next few hours. (Sunday night)

Get well soon Maunie, we need you~

thank you all so much...not a very big deal, my a-fib got away from me again and because it happened twice in one year I have to make a decision about medication or a pace maker...will speak to both doctors today but if I go the coumadin route I have to get blood tests once a week for a month or two...and there is a problem with bleeding. I feel too young for either one but ya goota do whatcha gotta do...thanks so much for your well wishes. I'm off to Arizona to murder Kim.

Maunie ... how does Warfarin help a fib?? As far as I knew, it was more of a thinner and anti-clot blood agent.

Need more info ... Speedy

Just read up ... because the blood flows slower through arterial vessels with a fib there is a greaster chance of blockage.

I say try the meds first, and go back in later for further investigation and tests. Make sure and pound the doctor for info ... they always leave to quickly. MORE INFO = Safer medical.

God bless Maunie :-)

Hey Speedcat ~ Are you going to eat the award or post it?

If you're gonna eat it, can I have a bite of the inside ... no breading for us ... but once in a while we can't resist Oscar Mayer's faire. Sp?

And Maunie:
I agree with Speedy. My reasoning is this: Medicine is less invasive. If you start with the MOST invasive procedure you can't backtrack to the LESS invasive procedure.
Meds first. See if you get satisfactory results and then monitor how you feel on them. I know that some meds require some research/testing to see what the right dosage is for you. So be sure to give the doctor lots of feedback and feel free to demand changes.
#1 recommendation: ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF LIKE NO TOMORROW!!! Who cares if they think you are a squeaky wheel? They'll grease you first. And in medicine that's a good thing, I think.

Good luck.
