Goin' back on the table today

Today they are going to redo my stent procedure. The goal is to add a second stent and also to place the first one in a better position. It is HURTING me. In a big way. The nurse said it's possible they placed it right on an area they had surgically cut, so it's riding up against the wound. I hope this time they get it right, because right now I can't function without Vicodin.

Other than that, things are good. Mom is visiting. Kids are happy. Weather is sunny. Summer is summery.

Wish me luck.


  1. Good luck Shelly! Thinking of you. When you are up to it, please let us know how you're feeling. Hope you get some relief soon.
    XOXO, Meredith
