Wednesday afternoon Sylvia stated that she had some discomfort in her left chest and left jaw. She refused to see the doctor in the clinic here in Benson. Thursday morning the pain was still there. Glenn was able to have her see the doctor. Problem, the clinic is closed on Thursday. We went to the emergency room, after lunch.
The emergency room ran the EKG and discovered a difference from the old EKG that we carry with us. The emergency room doctor transferred Sylvia to the Tucson Medical Center by ambulance. In Tucson, she was admitted and observed. Friday morning the Doctor reviewed the EKG and decided to look at the heart with an angioplasty. He found two blocked artery's. He installed two stints. The doctor says that the heart was not damaged. Sylvia had a restless evening as she had to remain on her back for 6 hours, the back pain kept her awake. The nurse gave her a muscle relaxer then she was able to sleep.
Today, Saturday she was released from the hospital and is now home in Benson.
The care and attention we have received while in strange towns has been terrific. The Doctors have been top notch and the Hospitals have been very accommodating.
This is a great life "on the road".
