    big brave cop in hospital

    last thursday at 0530 i had some bad chest pain. after receiving a sound bollocking from Bothwell i went to doctor office. he took one look at me and called sheriff dept. to send a cruiser to take me to ER stat. (he is our dept. doctor). so next thing i know i am in ICU. after two days of stress tests, radioactive isotope nuclear medicine x-rays, sonograms, blood work for enzymes which indicate whether there is a cardiac event, and everything but a pregnancy test they say i can go home. i get dressed and can't wait to get out of my imprisonment. then the on-call guy comes in and says "we think you have lung embolisms and could have a stroke any minute". he is lucky i am not armed. (you have to understand this guy has misdiagnosed me 4 times before). so they take me to have CAT scan. but they need to inject me with a dye. OK. well it took 7 tries to start an IV on me since my veins had collapsed at that point. SEVEN needle sticks up my hands and arms, all EXTREMELY painful. they kept apologizing. not their fault. but the big bad cop was now sobbing, the tears running down my face. i've been shot, beaten up, pepper-sprayed, tased and had a heart attack on the job....but this was worse. i was crying like a baby. they said "shall we quit?" i said no, i have to know the result. at 0300 the sweet nurse woke me up and told me i was OK, no embolisms. i am really glad to be home now.

    You've really been through a lot lately, lc. It might not feel like it to you sometimes but you've certainly got an incredible inner strength that gets you through. Take care.

    Re: big brave cop in hospital

    Hi venus...yes, i have a clue...i am NEVER EVER going to hospital again, EVER. i feel fine now, just tired. i also put it on record that the doc in question is never to come within 97 feet of me again. i have a good friend who was in hospital a few months ago...he wrote on her notes that she was obese and an alcoholic. she is tiny and does not drink!! he told me i had a brain aneurysm and scared the hell out of me, so i went to a neurologist who said the guy was dead wrong. but i spent months in fear. i think this guy spends all his time reading the AMA journal and imagining things. when he discharged me yesterday i told him i was going to give him a speeding ticket before he got out of his parking space.

    Well, if you think your behavior is gonna make me think anything less of you your dead wrong. You're still a big brave (good lookin) cop in my book!

    Note to self: LC's human after all!

    LC! God Bless you Hunny!

    Can you shoot effectively at 97 feet? I suspect yes! Poor doc.!!! hehehe

    Sorry you had to go through all of that. Tears are a normal human funtion. I have to admit I've shed a few.

    I'll be praying you recover quickly and never have to experience that again.
