Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Quick update

Tomorrow — my scene report, with videos. But for tonight, an update on John.

His angiogram went well, as I mentioned in the comments on the last blog. The coronary arteries are clean, no blockages. So now, he can move forward with researching the heart valve replacement. Unfortunately, even though they can laparoscopically repair bad valves these days, John’s is too far gone for that, so it will have to be replaced.

John is one of the toughest people I know. For the test, he had a local swab of lidocaine for the puncture, where they inserted the catheter. And that is IT. They had put an IV in his hand for Valium to relax him and dull any discomfort, but then he asked if that was optional. When they said yes, he declined the Valium. To be fair, all types of anesthesia and tranquilizers make him sick, so he avoids them whenever possible. But if someone were threading a catheter from my groin to my heart and injecting dye, I would take any drugs they offered and deal with the nausea later!!

So, as a result, he didn’t have any after-effects. He had to remain lying still for a few hours after the procedure, but he felt fine. They gave him a sandwich and some water to drink and he was comfortable. I picked him up at 2:15, and the nurse wheeled him to my car. Once I got him home, I put him to bed and he crashed for a few more hours.

It was a quiet weekend. John was very tired, but otherwise OK. I was still coughing and hobbling around with my sore back, so between the two of us, we were quite the energetic pair. No driving, no lifting, no bending over for 48 hours, but by this morning, he could resume all activities and went back to work. 

Probably needless to say, but I am hugely relieved that this weekend is behind us. I know I probably made too big a deal about this test, but I can’t help it. I worry. I guess I always will. When his heart surgery comes around, whenever that may be, I know I will deal with it. I’ll be a nut case, but I’ll deal.

Oh… and because this still is a kink blog, despite all the OT drama of late, here’s a link to a Spanking Tube preview of the audit video I did with Lily and Robert. 🙂 

Fun stuff tomorrow!

  2. So great to hear that John is recovering well! I had the pleasure of meeting him at SL and since we exchanged some war stories, I'm not surprised he was able to forgo Valium 🙂 I, however, am one step shy of having to go the sedation dentistry route… I guess I only enjoy certain kinds of pain 🙂 Looking forward to your post, tomorrow!xo,SC
