Wednesday's Ramblings or About My Mum's Aniogram


 Guess what I sound awful, croaky and like I am losing my voice but in myself I feel better than I did yesterday also I have an ear ache in my left ear running down to my jaw but not so bad that it is unbearable…………Anyway Little Leo has conjunctivis but the viral type not the bacteria type so he doesn’t need drops for it and can go back to day care tomorrow, although Jessica has taken him over today to have his photo taken. 

I had to go and pick mum up to go and see nan today as she can’t drive till maybe Friday, because yesterday she had to have an angiogram done for those of you who have no idea what an angiogram is, it is this:

A coronary angiogram is a special x-ray of your heart using an injected contrast dye. The angiogram looks for heart muscle or heart valve abnormalities. It can also see if the coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked. An angiogram can also diagnose heart problems including aneurysm (abnormal ballooning of the heart wall), heart arrhythmias (irregular heart beat) or birth defects, such as a hole in the heart.

It showed that mum had has heart disease but what happens next we will find out when she goes back to see the specialist. With mum they went in through the arm.

Like all procedures there are risks involved but mum said when the doctor came to get her to sign the consent form she couldn’t help think you tell me all these things that could go wrong and then say sign please. Possible complications of an angiogram:
·         Allergic reaction to the contrast dye, including hives and itchy skin
·         Bleeding from the wound
·         Heart arrhythmia
·         Heart attack
·         Stroke.

Also I want to get more organised yes you read that right I want to be more organised, I know many people already think I am organised but lately I haven’t felt like it so I am thinking I might start making a list of everything I want or need to do in a day and make things off as I go along. It can’t hurt to give it try right…………
I want to set aside time to write blog post and save them for when I am too busy to write something or when I have an idea that I want to write about and feel it is better to do it while it is fresh in my mind, I also need to set aside time to write letters and then of course there is the everyday housework and stuff.

Back to Leo and his sticky eyes this morning I told him he had to go to the doctor about them and he was sure the doctor would make them worse and when I drove him over to Tasha’s place to wait for his mum to pick him up and take him to the doctors he says to me as we pull up “are you sure this is the doctors? “It looks like Tasha’s place”…………….funny kid.

Tim also had me change the sheets on the bed because he doesn’t want to get conjunctivas so I really should get off my bum and go and get the sheets on the line, thankfully Jessica helped me change the sheets. Ok sheets on the line and second load of washing on and I am wheezing something terrible………..lol  

One more thing before I post Dawson’s mother had her baby at 3am this morning  7lb 03oz  she has decided to name him Landon Alister

  8. Jo-Anne! I finally found your blog! I discovered I have two google+ accts. and I'm going to try to combine them. I think I connect w/ you on one and you follow me on the other...it's nutty. Anyhoo...that sore eye looks so sad. :-( Hope that little guy gets feeling better. It's hard to learn that parents have health issues. Hope your mom gets good care.
