Just a heart beat (general discussion)

away from cardiac arrest. I seen the films and it looks like a metal junk yard. Doc says that 5 or 6 more stents would not do the job. He said if I insisted on more stents he would refuse because in 2 to 4 years I would be in the same boat I was already in. Said he could get me on the OR table Thursday. I said no thanks that 2.5 million pesos (about $48,000.oo) was just more money than I could beg bower or steal in the next day. He use to work for the VA so he knew what I was up against. We checked out Thursday noon and I left the hospital feeling worse than when I checked in. Home now knowing that my next breath could be my last. I need to start, tomorrow, getting my shit in order so there is no fighting over all this junk I will be leaving behind. I would have to dig one hell of a big hole to take it with me. I just hope that the final heart beat isn't to painful. I am service connected for my heart condition. My VA rating is a full 100% permanent and total. Now the VA is requiring me to pay up front for all my medical needs. I believe that they knew damm well why they changed that and what effect that would have on us vets. Anyway Im still breathing and bitching. Our staff, handyman and house keeper, shared the duties of house siting while we were gone. I am really grateful for the both of them, very good people.
