Back after an unintended short break from blogging

Checked into the ER with chest pains on Friday.

The bad news - it was a heart attack. The good news - the attack was minor.

An angiogram showed the five previous stents were fine and no new ones required.

The problem arose from not taking Plavix for five days prior to a spinal steroid injection for sciatica.

Ironically, the sciatica stopped last week as suddenly as it began in early March so the injection was not needed after all. Needless to say, it was a very, very long four and one half months.

It's all over now, however, and we have much to be thankful for!
