I have a flock of zebras. They don't play nicely with others and the horses often kick them.

Not normal, but not dangerous
I have been sprung. Me and my buddy, Hep-pump are officially separated. The stress test showed once again that my heart is far from normal, but there are no deadly blockages going on. This time they were concerned about the inverted T-waves, but since that is far from a new finding they aren't getting upset by them. There was no evidence of the once Anterior Lateral Ischemia and the doctor seems to think that the appearance of it in the past spoke more about the still healing state of my chest from surgery than from any actual heart damage. They seem to think that being mildly hypokalemic along with some thickened blood not yet a clot is the probable cause of the symptoms that I was having. I don't think I've ever heard the term blood sludge before. Kind of has me scratching my head and wondering if this is a fancy way of saying "We really don't know." But I'll take this expensive mystery theater for what it is and be gladly on my way home. Someday my body is going to need a break and I'm going to go on a cruise rather than a night in the hospital. Aetna won't pay for it, but I'm sure that I will have a lot more fun.
