Drama Averted

Scott’s doctor attempted to inject some drama into our otherwise humdrum existence this week by dramatically aborting his EKG stress test and declaring he’d seen enough to know that Scott needed to hie himself to Nashville, post haste, for a heart catheterisation procedure to discover what sort of blockage there might be and fix it as necessary.

So a day or two later we were spending the night at Seton Lodge which is a little hotel on the grounds of St. Thomas Hospital which is known for its excellent heart unit. It was very convenient since the appointment was at 5 AM. They have a shuttle to take you right to the entrance of the cardiac outpatient clinic. I really cannot say enough good things about the kindness and professionalism and excellent facility there at St. Thomas. The heart cath revealed no blockage, thank God, and so we were soon on our way again.  Drama averted.  It was nice to get so many calls of concern and all, though!

We do have to figure out what IS causing Scott’s symptoms, but having “heart” crossed off the list may turn out to be the best medicine.

    Wow! That sounds like enough drama to last for quite a while. So glad to hear that his heart is officially okay! I’ll be praying that the two of you and his doctors have wisdom to discover the source of his symptoms.

    I read this several days ago. . . and have been rejoicing at the good news (and praying for the health issues to be clarified) since.
