    :) been having a private pity party here. LOL.

    I had a very "mild" heart attack last month. They insisted I needed an angiogram.

    My heart is fine, I may have some very rare disorder they think where I just kinda blew. a spontaneous dissection.

    But when they did the angio they managed to give me all the worst complications that are listed as possible risks. A pseudo aneurism in the artery and a massive blood clot all the way down my thigh.
    This was at a hospital that is deemed a world leader in Cardiology. I have no idea if it was just a bad day there?
     Been in and out of hospital for weeks now. Can't walk. Amazing pain like I have never felt before.

    I feel like I have one foot over a cliff, as one of the clots could just move into a lung or something.

    While all the medical stuff is paid for, as I live in Canada, the wages that have been lost are not really. Ill get some, 55%, back through EI when it kicks in. My husband who is self employed, won't. And he has been working half time because someone needs to take care of our little girls.

    This is going to be a harsh holiday. But the heat is on, and we have food.

    I am not yet 50, BTW.
