A Day in the Hospital

On Wednesday morning my wife checked into Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos for a surgical procedure on her heart.  She has long suffered from irregular heartbeat and tachycardia, and this procedure was to see what was going on and what, if anything, could be done about it.

She checked into the Short Stay Cath Lab in the basement, and was awake during the procedure, viewing her own heart on a television screen as the doctor talked to her about what he was seeing.  It seems she had a second heart node that was likely the cause of the rapid heart beat.  They cauterized it, and hopefully that will end the problem.

Before we arrived at the hospital, we went to Oak Hill Cemetery in San Jose to finish preparations for our final expenses, just in case.  More about that in the next post.
