National Chocolate Day 2020!

***CORONAVIRUS CASES ARE RISING!***
131,000 UNITED STATES CITIZENS ARE DEAD!
AND IT’S NOT A HARMLESS FLU!
Covid-19 attacks the respiratory system, and also causes damage to other organs, including THE BRAIN! CoronaVirus causes permanent and long-term illness.
In TWO WEEKS it will be even worse.  (and they are doing nothing to stop it)
Thousands more will die, and Tens of Thousands more will be sick, infected and spreading the virus further. And Trump/Pence think they’re doing great.

The “BAILOUT MONEY” went to corporations, friends of Trump, and churches.
Kanye West’s Yeezy brand got millions. A 500 BILLION DOLLAR GIVEAWAY!
Some people got $1200 – but WE DID NOT.
Some people got Government money and SBA loans – WE DID NOT.
We are very fortunate that we can “shelter in place” and “self-isolate”.
We are not an essential worker, (there are lots of job openings right?)
and we wouldn’t want to be one with the current conditions.

This Week’s Distraction: Trump wants to re-open the schools.
And the news media follows wherever he tweets….
TRUMP KNEW ABOUT THE RUSSIAN BOUNTY ON US TROOPS
AND THEN DID AND SAID NOTHING! HE IS PUTIN’S BITCH!

And every GOP Republican is GUILTY of TREASON for aiding and abetting Trump.

EVELhUkU8AEQxxM

TRUMP STILL WON’T WEAR A MASK!
This is all a Democratic HOAX right?
It will magically disappear. Cases are going down. We have it under control.
Drink the Bleach. And then he pressured Governors to re-open too early.
Spring Break and Mardi Gras led to massive outbreaks.
Memorial Day weekend led to outbreaks, spikes and spread.
(OUR CURRENT NATIONAL EMERGENCY!)
And 4th of July will lead to further surge, spikes, spread and new outbreaks!
Some states are SPIKING and are totally overwhelmed with new cases…..
There is no National Testing or Tracking!
There is not enough testing and there is not enough tracking.
THERE ISN’T EVEN A NATIONAL PLAN (and they are ignoring the facts)

AND THEY CAN’T WAIT TO GET PROFESSIONAL SPORTS OPEN!
They need the public distracted!
They are losing BILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
No games, no gambling. No ad sales, no sponsorships. NO FREEBIES.
NO KICKBACKS for the Team Owners! NO TICKET SALES!
NO PAY-PER-VIEW! NO CONCESSIONS! NO FANTASY SPORTS!
Professional Wrestling doesn’t count.
NASCAR is already back, but without fans in the stands.
Major League Soccer started play today! (and there was a BLM tribute for 8:45mins)
NBA and WNBA Players are “In the Bubble” at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
Major League Baseball is trying to rally for a short season,
but all minor league games have been cancelled for the 2020 season.
And NHL Hockey and NFL Football are trying to figure out how to play.
(BLACK LIVES MATTER! REMEMBER COLIN KAEPERNICK AND TAKE A KNEE?)
Other sports are also trying to work out how to re-open.
MANY OF THE TEAM OWNERS/INVESTORS ARE FRIEND’S OF TRUMP!
The military depends on professional sports for recruitment advertising.
THIS IS ALL JUST MORE DISTRACTION FROM OUR NATIONAL EMERGENCY!

We didn’t really eat much and we really don’t have an appetite.
NOTE: And we are never “not hungry”, except after a good meal.
We are just NOT HUNGRY. So we made a quesadilla with salsa and ate that and some red grapes around dinnertime. We also ate some peanuts and some pita chips during the day, and then we ate (S’mores flavored) pop-tarts and a grapefruit in early AM.

THERE IS STILL NO FEDERAL TESTING OR TRACKING!

Wednesday, July 8, 2020

 

We woke up early after not sleeping all night again.
We are mentally and emotionally exhausted.

12:30pm: We tried to watch the CoronaVirus Task Force Press Conference this morning, but it was just Pence LYING and boasting and patting himself and Trump on the back while failing to address and/or acknowledge the rising numbers and 131000 US DEATHS!
We had to turn it off.
They want to take away your healthcare and protection for pre-existing conditions.
They want you and your family to die for Trump’s economy, so he brag about it.
The Supreme Court just upheld Trump removing mandated birth control coverage.
Trump has done everything possible to undermine our Federal Government!
He has destroyed years of Government Protections and Restriction that protect us!
Trump has stolen and funneled public money to his campaign, his companies and his friends and donors. They have given Billions of Dollars in tax breaks to corporations.
(and they changed the tax code to fuck the poor and the working class)
IF YOU HAVEN’T FIGURED IT OUT YET, THE STOCK MARKET IS BULLSHIT!
The economy is in ruins, with 40 million unemployed, and there’s no problem right?

108819028_10218225505852452_8788750554945332482_n

Just watching California Governor Gavin Newsome’s daily TV address/CoronaVirus update, and IT IS THE SAME EVERYDAY! There’s no good news. Shit is not getting better, it is getting much worse. And in two weeks we’re really fucked. And the only solution is a total HARDCORE LOCKDOWN and QUARANTINE with TESTING AND TRACKING….
and it may already be too late, which may be why they aren’t doing a total shutdown.
TRUMP and PENCE THINK THEY CAN IGNORE IT AND IT WILL DISAPPEAR.
TRUMP and PENCE THINK NO ONE WILL REMEMBER 131000+ US CITIZENS HAVE DIED BECAUSE OF THEIR TOTAL FAILURE!

65 NEW REPORTED DEATHS IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY TODAY!

6:15pm: The gardener came today. We took an afternoon nap while he was here.
We woke up and took care of the dogs (and we ordered dinner) and the dogs got fed.

On The Menu: Chinese Food delivery! Kung pao chicken, sweet&sour chicken, broccoli beef, steamed rice and chicken egg rolls. And leftovers for later tonight and tomorrow.

We ate, we posted the 6:15 and On the Menu, and then we fell asleep for an hour.
We woke up and took the dogs outside, and now we are all back chilling in the office.

We watched TV and surfed the interweb and played with the dogs for the rest of the night. We just don’t remember anything noteworthy about last night really.

The Ivy League cancelled all of its collegiate sports for the rest of the year today,
and they will honor the scholarships and grants to student athletes that are affected.

Tulsa, Oklahoma, reports a SPIKE in CoronaVirus cases following Trump’s Rally. DOH!
Plans for the in-person Houston Texas GOP Convention haven’t changed, except now Republican leaders will only be appearing via (livestream) video address! HAHAHA!

7:30am Good morning! We were up early early. The dogs went outside and…

A dead rat in the little yard this morning.
Must have fallen out of the oak tree and died on impact.

We took the dogs back out into the big yard and then they got fed.
And we bagged and disposed of the dead rat in the yard. We f*ckin’ hate rats.

107384310_3819572158069322_6782448052720653619_o

Too early for the Sun, but here’s to the cement pond!

We made an espresso, but we kinda lost our appetite for breakfast….
and we were hungry too.
The dogs went out again, then we went back into the office.

“I CAN’T BREATHE!” – George Floyd

99252529_10220260301009419_2506625420267356160_o

George Floyd is dead. He was murdered on video.
Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin killed him.
Chauvin was aided in this killing by three other Police Officers.

100646466_10163695445965241_3927334467877732352_n

All four were fired as soon as the footage aired. After three days of protests and three nights of rioting in Minneapolis, Chauvin was finally arrested and charged with 3rd degree Murder and Manslaughter. The other officers have not been arrested yet.

A black CNN reporter and his crew were arrested by Minneapolis Police today.
This was a TARGETED ARREST In a clear violation of the FIRST AMENDMENT!

There are reports that an “Agent Provocateur” may have been involved in smashing windows at the AutoZone and starting the vandalism. And he may have been a Minneapolis Police Office! There are pictures and posts and tweets, so go find the truth.

And Trump Tweeted. Rage tweeting on drugs. He has nothing positive to contribute, just more lies, slander, and self-serving propaganda (while 101000+ US Citizens have died).
Only today, he quoted another WHITE SUPREMACIST RACIST and threatened violence.

100593722_4627597343917874_7698166228774289408_n

Today’s Disgraceful Trump Tweet:
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” tweeted Trump early Friday morning. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” 

100088646_137004467962562_3909855832178688000_n

And Taylor Swift tweeted! And so did a lot of other angry people.

101956344_895265940900942_378877516359663616_n

NOTE: Well, we started watching the protest at about 4:00pm PST and didn’t eat dinner until after midnight because there was so much anger exploding all over the USA to see.

“The Pinch” in Downtown Los Angeles 5-29-2020

There was a protest in DTLA last night that turned into a six hour riot and looting party. You might not know it, because most of the network TV stations didn’t cover it live on TV, instead to get the real news you had to go online and search. And there were “protests” in many cities besides Minneapolis last night.

Escaping the LAPD containment through a Construction Site 5-29-2020

Okay kids, the event started before the sunset and went on until long after midnight…. yes there was some reporting and live coverage on network but really? There were 500 LAPD officers in DTLA and it was a tactical clusterf*ck. Six hours after the looting began, there were still cars and Metro buses driving through the chaos. People were running into buildings and through buildings to avoid the police. By the time the cops reponded to a location being looted, the crowd had already moved on. And they left their cop cars unguarded on the streets, so there was massive vandalism to numerous police units! The longer it went on the more people showed up to join in the anarchy, and there was no sense of urgency or coordinated response when the protesters moved onto the freeway early on… after two nights of rioting, why weren’t they prepared for this?
(THIS IS EXACTLY HOW THE 1992 L.A. RIOT STARTED!)

And then SATURDAY HAPPENED. (See our next Blog Post)

TRUMP’S RACIST AND DIVISIVE TWEET from April 17, 2020

A message from Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey:
“What started as largely peaceful protests for George Floyd have turned to outright looting and domestic terrorism in our region. We need you to stay home tonight….Governor Walz, at our request and in partnership with our city and Mayor Carter, has just fully mobilized the Minnesota National Guard. MPD and our fire department will be assisting tonight as part of this operation.” 

AND THIS TOO! READ THIS! YOU NEED TO READ THIS!

Police Brutality Protest in San Francisco in 1968! (photo by Jim Marshall)

“Let the photograph be one you remember-not for it’s technique but for it’s soul. Let it become part of your life-a part of your past to help you shape your future.” – Jim Marshall

IT IS THE YEAR 2020!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE AND PRISON REFORM!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE TO STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK CITIZENS!
Every Police Officer who has been accused of brutality, racism, or a civil rights violation should be FEDERALLY INVESTIGATED WITH PUBLIC OVERSIGHT and when found guilty, terminated immediately and prosecuted as necessary.
THE ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REFORMED TOO!
One system of justice for all.
There can’t be one for rich white people
and another for people of color and the poor.

STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!
STOP RIOTING AND LOOTING! STOP BURNING THINGS!

“I just want to say – you know – can we all get along?
Can we, can we get along?”

CORONAVIRUS! Part 6 (Fri-Sun)

 

10000+ PEOPLE ARE DEAD FROM CORONAVIRUS! (as per the known data)
The Government is STRAIGHT UP LYING to the Public!
The HEALTH SYSTEM IS FAILING ALREADY and the pandemic hasn’t even peaked.
TRUMP IS LYING MORE EVERYDAY OF COURSE!
NOTE: EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

“The whole epidemiological community has been warning everybody for the past 10 or 15 years that it wasn’t a question of whether we were going to have a pandemic like this. It was simply when. It’s really hard to get people to listen. I mean, Trump pushed out the admiral on the National Security Council, who was the only person at that level who’s responsible for pandemic defense. With him went his entire downline of employees and staff and relationships. And then Trump removed the [early warning] funding for countries around the world.” – Larry Brilliant, the Chairman of the Board of Ending Pandemics

Jim Inhofe (R-OK)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Trump and his grifter family and friends all knew too. 
Who else among the administration and their Mar-A-Lago friends knew?
If this is a “War”, then they are “War Profiteers”. Hanging is too good for them.
They are guilty of CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY! LOCK THEM UP!

No-Bid Contracts, Corporate Bailouts, and Croneyism
is the GOP solution to this Public Health Crisis!
They want to bail out CORPORATIONS!! Airlines, Cruise Lines, Hotel Companies (Herr Trump’s companies of course), and give each American a pittance (of course Congress can’t agree on anything), while everything is completely shut down. Meanwhile, old hospital buildings are being rehabbed, stadiums and schools are being repurposed, hospitals are establishing “triage spaces” and tents for social distancing sick people.

They are even housing sick people in RVs at Dockweiler State Beach in Malibu,
no joke!  So, seriously “stay out of Malibu” Dude.

HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING! HAPPY SPRING BREAK!
(technically the Vernal Equinox was just before midnight, but today is the first day)

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens

The Network News loves the clip of the wasted Spring Breaker saying
“If I get Corona, I get Corona, it’s not gonna stop me from partying”
AND NOW HE’S THE FACE AND VOICE OF THE STUPID GENERATION!

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – Wash them often
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it
4 – SPACE – Keep safe distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – Stay home if you can (or if it’s mandatory)

Mother Nature is pissed
Wants to kill us all

The Saturday morning (Gaslight) Press Conference:

90796106_1179399085738668_1462623461653348352_n

“I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig.
You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”
 – George Bernard Shaw

Saturday Afternoon Bullsh*t! (or “Facebook thread with a Trumper”)
We pretty much “unfriended” everyone who supports or defends Trump long ago.
There are a couple of exceptions, and this is one of them from facebook:

CLICK ON ANY SMALL PIC TO SEE A LARGER PIC AND VIEW THE GALLERY
AND THEN CLICK AGAIN TO VIEW THE PIC AT FULL SIZE!


We rarely engage with them because of the old “You can’t argue with a pig” joke.
(“Never argue with a pig. It just frustrates you and irritates the pig.”)
But since we’re trapped at the Home Office with the dogs,
we wasted an hour online while watching TV and working on this Blog Post.
Then we “unfriended” them an hour later for ruining our Saturday afternoon.
NOTE: We normally BLOCK all Trump Supporters too.

Two Press Conferences on Sunday! Just more Propaganda and Lies!
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS FAILED TO PROTECT THE UNITED STATES!
Now, how many people will die because of their incompetence, ineptitude, ignorance, willful disregard, stupidity, and racism? WHO WILL REMOVE THEM FROM OFFICE?

Trump was briefed about Coronavirus 3 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, ignored it and of course, lied about it!
A TOTAL REPUBLICAN FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

A TOTAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FAILURE!
“Instead of a public health system, we (in the United States) have a private for-profit system for individuals lucky enough to afford it”

Republicans in Congress can’t agree on the funding bill to help the public without a “Bailout” and another GIANT GIVEAWAY to GIANT CORPORATIONS (Airlines, etc.)
Meanwhile individual private citizens, small and large businesses, and government employees are waiting for some Federal relief and leadership that isn’t coming.

Trump, Pence, Pompeo, Mnuchin, McConnell, Graham, and the rest of the GOP
need to RESIGN NOW AND/OR BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST!

Another rambling Press Conference with the Liar&Thief in the evening……
And the stock market DROPPED ANOTHER 900+ POINTS TODAY on SUNDAY
before trading opens on Monday morning and the Stock Market really crashes!
And Trump said they’ll be another Press Conference tomorrow morning.

NOTE: The daily Press Conferences have replaced Trump’s Rallies as the way to stroke his fragile ego and feed his raging narcissism, while promoting his lies, racism, and agenda to the scared public and his brain-washed right-wing followers.

THIS IS NOT “BUSINESS AS USUAL”
and THIS IS NOT “THE NEW NORMAL”
The “media frenzy” is driving public panic and panic buying. 24/7 Coronavirus!
The amount of stupid sh*t coming from celebrities on TV/Twitter is unbelievable!
The morning “news” is having “haha” fun with this disaster and shilling for Trump.
He lies. He lies all the time. They broadcast soundbites that make him look good.
Fox News is trying to put a positive spin on the pandemic, comparing it to the flu,
(like it’s no big deal) and ALWAYS shilling for Trump….

THE STOCK MARKET (Dow Jones) DROPPED 3000 POINTS MONDAY (that’s 13%)!
The Stock Market dropped 2200 points at the open and trading was immediately suspended! It was another really bad day on Wall Street,
the biggest one day loss in history…. you might even call it “HISTORIC”
Screen Shot 2020-03-17 at 00.38.45
And then there was another Press Conference…..
(remember how he praised the stock market on Friday, Saturday & Sunday?)

“WHITE WASHING”

The longer Trump talked, the more the stock market dropped on Monday!
And why do all the doctors behind him look really scared?
But, someone must have slapped him awake, because he didn’t mumble today.
3000 points! Hannity and his Money Men must have called.
He said “maybe a recession” and BOOM. (Someone must have spanked him!)
“It’s not under control” and BOOM. And then more incoherent rambling.
MORE LIES, MORE PATTING HIMSELF ON THE BACK, MORE THANK YOUS,
and “We’re going to have a big celebration.” BOOM!

They’re talking economic relief for the airlines, hotel and cruise companies,
even the casinos are asking for a government bailout today!
Bars, clubs, restaurants, retail stores, and other businesses are closing.
Some won’t be back. Some will be bankrupt. Employees won’t get paid.
There weren’t any retail executives or corporate shills at the conference today.

And California is closed, Washington is closed,
Oregon is closed, New York is closed, and more states are closed.
Curfews, Executive Orders, State and Local Regulations for the Public Good!
San Francisco is on LOCKDOWN for 3 weeks! People can’t even go outside.
MGM and other hotel/casinos in Las Vegas have closed, but some are still open!
(Open: Caesars Resorts, Treasure Island, Tropicana, Venetian/Palazzo and the Strat)
Walt Disney World had a big closing night party with a huge crowd! BOOOOOO!
Ohio Health Dept cancelled the Tuesday Primary Election – postponed until June!
Canada and Europe instituted TRAVEL BANS (but not on US Citizens of course).
The Royal Shakespeare Company cancelled all shows! (London, Stratford & touring)
The 146th Kentucky Derby postponed from May 2nd to September 5th, 2020!
Most everyone else cancelled or postponed events today, if they hadn’t already yet.
Trump ordered “health screenings” at the major airports without a plan!
Huge Crowds! People were lined up for hours at the airports in close proximity! 

AND THE UNITED STATES IS NOT PREPARED FOR THIS CRISIS!

How many people should be allowed to gather together?
1000, 500, 250, 100, 50, and now 10. The number should be ZERO!
Anyone you contact might already be infected!
The Coronavirus is contagious before the host shows symptoms!
Nobody has been tested…. unless they’re already really sick!
You might just get a mild case, but you might infect someone who might die.
STAY HOME! STAY HEALTHY! DON’T PANIC! REMAIN CALM!

It’s the 25th Anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake!

41324143_668005780250323_8778177618399723520_n

25 years ago, on January 17, 1994, we woke up in the dark at 4:30am to the 6.7 magnitude Northridge Earthquake shaking and the sound of things falling! As I opened my eyes, the TV fell off the stand in the bedroom with a crash and the sound of glass breaking could be heard as things fell out of cabinets in the kitchen of our 4th floor apartment in Glendale, California.

50416206_1221191174697327_8869848369573396480_n

Damage at home was pretty minimal and we had earthquake insurance that covered most of it! Our storage unit in Northridge was another story however (yellow tagged), and we had to rescue our trapped Grandmother (of blessed memory) from a destroyed condominium/apartment in Sherman Oaks.

figure-01-seismo_lab-news-web

Our friends lived on Woodman near Burbank and they could see daylight through their apartment walls! The whole neighborhood to the south and west suffered “liquefaction” and there was more damage to most of the buildings in that area. They also had to wait in a line to get into their building to try to recover their stuff when the building was “yellow tagged”. Our Grandmother’s third floor apartment in Sherman Oaks was completely destroyed and she had to be rescued because she was trapped inside.

And the aftershocks in Sherman Oaks and the mid-Valley were just plain scary and went on for days! A pic of the Northridge Fashion Center after the quake:

The Northridge Fashion Center After the Northridge Earthquake

We remember the 57 people who died (and the thousands who were injured) in the Northridge earthquake, a smaller number than might have been killed, because the event happened at 4:30am when most people were in bed……….

A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!

TWO WEEKS AGO:

JUNE 19, 2017 2:00am
A Trip To The EMERGENCY ROOM!
(Not the kind of traveling you want to do)

So how’s your Sunday night going? We had a a fun Father’s Day BBQ Party and then I fell asleep early around 10pm. I woke up at midnight and went online and then did some other late night work in the home office. Around 1:30am I felt a strange (not normal) pain in my chest and 10 minutes later it hadn’t gone away. I took a Bayer aspirin and then had to make a serious decision about my health.

17309131_1852391144787443_1747713814228109722_n

Chest pain (not normal) so a trip to the ER: better safe than dead.
Didn’t want to take any chance that it might be something very serious, so we made the call and got dressed, and drove over to the hospital.

The drive over was excruciating and there was a lot of anxiety and stress along the way.

Not exactly Dr. Kubler-Ross’ “Anger, Denial, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance”, but there was a little bit of soul-searching and “what if?” thinking in that 20 minute car ride.

NOTE: No, I did not drive myself to the hospital. I was lucky enough to have someone available at 1:30 in the morning to drive me to the ER. BIG Thanks for the ride! And they know who they are! I’m also very grateful to have pretty good medical coverage. THANKS OBAMA!

So, the ER Waiting Room was not very busy on Sunday night. There were some other people waiting as I checked in, most noticeably a woman who interupted the guy checking me in because a catheter was stuck and she had to go!

Medical card, ID and method of payment please? My health insurance will cover most of the costs, but there was a big deductible/co-payment required and most likely another bill later. I was taken into a small exam room for an EKG and Blood Pressure/vital sign evaluation (with the door open, because there was only one tech on duty at ER Reception), given my ID wristband, and then I was returned to the Waiting Room.

I was then called by a nurse and led into the working area of the ER. There wasn’t a clean room, so she had me lay on a cart in the hall, and then she turned me over to another nurse and went on dinner break. The second nurse stuck an IV needle in my arm and drew blood for testing. The ER Doctor on duty came and evaluated me, asked me questions, got information from my computerized files and decided which tests to run.

2:15am (see the picture above) Emergency Room at the hospital, evaluated and laying on a gurney cart in the hallway waiting for the exam room to be cleaned. Waiting for test results. My EKG and vitals are ok, but I’m still having the chest pain. The second nurse left me laying on the gurney cart in the hall and when the first nurse came back from her dinner break, she apologized and finally moved me to a clean room about a half hour later

19732363_1875384029154821_7054587357051182136_n

After a short rolling trip, I moved from the gurney cart to a bed in a private ER exam room. They put on the automatic Blood Pressure machine and vital signs monitor, put me on an IV drip, gave me some drugs and an oxygen feed while I waited for test results.

3:16am In a room now being monitored…
waiting for the shift change and X-rays. vital signs good

NOTE: Modern Medicine and Technology is amazing! No need to go to the X-ray room, the machine and the technician come right to you! The guy wheeled in a portable X-ray cart and took a chest shot without me having to get up and/or move.

Everything was fine. All my vital signs and both EKGs were normal, the X-ray and the tests didn’t show anything to worry about. I was able to post to facebook and called my ride and sent them home, knowing it would be hours while the enzyme test was run.

The Doctor on Duty came back and followed up and then I waited. Another Nurse Technician came in and took more blood and gave me some more drugs intravenously. The pain in my chest finally began to go away.

So I used my iPhone to keep busy, but reception was terrible.
So I just deleted a bunch of emails and then tried to rest.

I got a bed (that wasn’t plugged in) when they moved me to the private exam room. It was just really uncomfortable with the IV in one arm and the automatic BP cuff on the other. Also the vital sign monitor was clamped to my index finger and there was a cable attached and it was attached to a digital display (that would “ping” if and when my heart rate dropped). And every so often, the automatic BP cuff would inflate around my arm to the point of almost pain just to remind me that I was .

Don’t like hospitals and waiting sucks. Tried to sleep, but there was too much noise. Finally told them I just wanted to go home. I’m supposed to do a “stress test” but everything else was pretty normal. No explanation for the chest pain, so I’m going home because everything here got really busy after 7am

 

6+ hours and I just want to go home now. No news is good news I guess. They’re running more tests and I’m just getting annoyed with the machine that goes “ping”

19702342_1875383965821494_742480103389851688_n

The Machine that goes “PING!”

That thing sucks! It was the worst part of the visit.

Everything was okay (with just a few exceptions) until the 7am shift and I was handling it really well. After the shift change, they got busy and had a critical patient in another room, so everything else (like the other patients) got lower priority for attention.

I went home because I wanted to and because it was getting too stressful at the ER. I wanted to rest but the heart monitor kept beeping, there was too much noise in the hall, and it was really uncomfortable laying on the gurney with the IV in one arm, the automatic blood pressure cuff on the other and the heart rate monitor taped to my index finger. Decided I can follow up later with the stress test.

They gave me the bill, took my credit card payment and also made me sign a “released against Doctor’s order” waiver. My ride came and picked me up and drove me home.

11:22am

Home again. Feeling okay. After 8 hours in the ER, the next day is a beautiful day!

Thanks again everyone! All the tests came back clean and we are feeling fine. We didn’t want to chance whatever it was that was causing the pain, so we made a trip to the ER to be safe. We are so lucky to be able to get good urgent care! Don’t mess around and get checked out if you’re having a health problem!

NOTE: The royal “we” as in Me (and my shadow)

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks to everyone for your concern, kind thoughts, good advice and words of wisdom! I am home and I feel okay. I had some chest pain at 1:30am this morning and had to go and get checked out (better to be safe). So 9 hours, 2 EKGs, a little medication and a chest x-ray later, we are a huge co-pay poorer and everything appears fine. My vital signs are excellent and nothing appears to be wrong. Big thanks to all the folks (Doctors, nurses, techs and staff) at the emergency room and special thanks goes out (to you know who you are) for getting me there and picking me up! So, all is well and we will be “takin’ easy for all you sinners” today.

THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU! Thanks Again! Came home and went to bed, woke up and had some food, feel fine with just a little residual pain and a slight headache. Was outside with the dogs for a little bit, but it’s too hot for humans (and pups) again today in the valley…. and it’s only Monday.

Glad to be alive.
Thinking of all my friends with serious health problems!
BE WELL! If you have a health problem, SEE A DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY!

TELL THE USA TO DUMP TRUMP!

http://www.facebook.com/usadumptrump

The United States has elected a CRIMINAL CON MAN with no morals or ethics. Trump is ignorant and can barely read. He doesn’t know history, politics, world geography, science or correct grammar. He surrounds himself with the worst people. He has ties to Putin and Russia. He is guilty of treason, fraud and sexual assault. Trumpsters take your victory lap today, because the future doesn’t look good for people who won’t wear a red cap and everyone else. Trump belongs in prison not the White House.
