It's Time

We're starting to get our bag's packed up in Florida. We're going to be heading back to our NY home next week (God willing and the creek don't rise!)

Grandpa Bob saw the Cardiologist on Tuesday and he gave us some more bad news. After running a 24 hour EEG on him, he now has Ventricular Tachycardia. That means his heart is now beating fast. The doctor said it could be the heart is trying to compensate for the bad aortic valve that is not opening and closing well. He also said it could be from a blockage. Either way, it is NOT good! Typically when you have these two problems combined, the end result is a quick trip to The Bridge. Yikes!

The Doctor is not happy that any travel is involved, but he understands Grandpa Bob wants to get back to NY (it doesn't help either that Mr. Stinky Fish is helping to "fuel the fire" about getting Grandpa back to NY.) The Doctor put Grandpa Bob on some new medicine which we call Medicine #17. That's because he takes 17 different kinds of pills every day. He wanted to put Grandpa Bob in the Cath Lab but he said no. If anything is going to be looked at, poked, prodded, cut open, etc. it will be done in NY.

Mommy really likes this Cardiologist because he tells you like it is! He must have been a Boy Scout in his youth because he told us as we were leaving his office "good luck and be prepared!"

So, on Monday afternoon Mommy will go to the airport to pick up her Brother Bob. He will fly back home early Tuesday morning with Grandpa Bob. Grandpa Bob is (a) not happy he has to get up really early Tuesday, (b) that Bob has to "take time out of his busy schedule" to fly home with him and (c) that he has to wear oxygen on the flight. Mommy said it's about time he steps up to the plate to help out.

Mommy e-mailed Brother Bob all the Dr's notes (both cardiology & neurology) so he has them in case of an emergency. He called Mommy yesterday and talked to her for a half an hour which is very unusual. He just couldn't believe all the things wrong with Grandpa Bob. Mommy was like WTF Dude! She's been telling him all of this stuff for the past 6 months and now that he has the Doctor's notes he finally believes it????? Mommy said he's a dumb ass. He's flapping around like a Stinky Fish outta water because now he's really nervous about traveling with Grandpa Bob and also about having to watch him for 4 days. Welcome to our world you idiot!! Guess you're not such a big man on campus now, are ya!

They will both stay together at our house until we arrive. We will be pulling out of our FL driveway very early Thursday morning and should be home in NY by Friday night. I don't even want to think right now about being locked away in my prison crate for 2 days. It's a miserable ride for me. Muffin on the other hand loves it because she will sleep the entire way.

We've got our paws crossed that Grandpa Bob has a very safe trip!
