In case you’ve been worrying and fretting and gnawing your fingernails –
PZ got a stent, and is enjoying the drugs, and will be going home tomorrow.
Only *one* stent? Sheesh! Five years ago I got one of those ultimatums from a Doc who said (and this is a direct quote) “We’re not going to do it before the sun sets today, but we’re surely going to do it before the sun sets a week from today.” They put in three stents. One stent is nothing. :)
Just so, hence it’s good news. Sympathy about your three count them three!
Well, being a competitive sort, I have to inform you that I had FIVE stents. Neener neener.
Boast boast boast. Very well, you win; I’m totally jealous.
Can you believe the tone in PZ’s comment/update? What a dick! (tongue in cheek)
Indeed, especially when he ought to be floating on a benign druggy cloud. The guy is incorrigible.
Very well, you win
Actually, I think we win, now that PZ has been treated and is on the mend. Thank modern medicine and the good sense PZ had to seek help for the fleeting discomfort he experienced that started this 5-stented ball rolling.
I’ll bet PZ was sticking his tongue out when he wrote that.
5 stents in one session ? Was the cardiothoracic team on annual leave ?
Were the stents blessed before use? The way to tell is if there’s a burning sensation in your chest.
5 stents, you greedy bastard!
Glad you’re okay, pee-zed.
I don’t know you, PZ, except from regularly reading about you @ B&W. Nonetheless, I too would like to wish you well after your 5 stent implantations. Incidentally, I was with a lady last week who also had stents, six months ago; she has been flying it ever since. So have Heart!
Does this mean that you’ll be setting off security alarms when you pass through scanners?
