This is the foot of the bed and my feet in hospital sox (with grippers :-) passing the time by watching the ballgame (Tigers lost!) I spent 24 hrs. in the hospital, because on Saturday I responded to a "perceived" stressful situation with distress--and experienced a tightness in my chest area and throat. Being of the
age that I need to pay attention to symptoms, I told my Best-Half about it, and he would hear of nothing until I went to Emergency to get "checked out." You don't just get checked out in Emergency--you get "Checked in." Then they do stress tests, blood work, etc., etc, etc..... Anyway, I passed the stress test with flying colors (thanks goodness for the fact that we excercise regularly at the "Y") and got to go home 24 hrs. later. I spent a lot of time pleading my case to go home--and fast! I happened to have a w/c brush, and a limited little box of paints (no yellow! :-( and also a little w/c postcard pack in my purse--so I amused myself by sketching as best I could while watching tv.
