Home and Yet Not "Home"

Yes, I'm back in the states but not really home. I actually did make it home for one night in my very own bed.

Well, here's what's happened.....

We landed on Monday, August 10th around 2:30 in the afternoon and waited a bit to deplane. It got warm and on the walk to Customs I was feeling really lousy, partly just from having been up since 5 a.m. Florence time and then we were rushing to make each of our connections after our first train to Rome. Anyway, as I approached Customs I told my brother I really wasn't feeling well. My chest was hurting, I was very thirsty, and short of breath. I saw an agent and told him I wasn't feeling well, needed to sit down, and needed a drink. Security came right over. I was given a chair and water and I told them, "Yes, you need to call the EMT's. I feel I need to be checked out." So the long and short of it I was taken to a nearby hospital. I was not happy with that hospital and signed myself out A.M.A. and had Paul pick me up. I won't even go into the details. The next day I called my cardiologist's office and told them what was going on and they called me back and told me to get back to the hospital and go to the ER that my doc uses -
so here I am. I've had a bunch of tests and will have a cardio cath. on Monday. I was having some difficulties in Italy when I was walking around and needed to be checked out. (Not a word of this to my dad.)

I'm doing this from a connection the hospital has where a keyboard plugs into the TV channel changer. Sorry no pictures until I get home. Matt, the Web Dude will post this for me and send it out.
