The doctor only gave me an excuse from work for the two days I was in the hospital. Both my mom and I agree it should have been longer, because the meds they prescribed haven't really had time to do whatever they need to do. I'm going to attempt, yet again, depending on how I'm feeling, to return to work tomorrow. I'm a bit woozy-headed still at the moment, and my vision is still blurring from time to time. Not sure if that is from my health problems, or the meds. The blurriness didn't really start until I started on the meds.
Speaking of the meds, apart from the aspirin a day they told me to take, I'm also now taking Plavix (geesh, EXPENSIVE!), Pravastatin (generic for Pravachol), Metoprolol, and on an "if-needed" basis, Nitroquick, in case those chest pains return. Feel like I'm turning into a walking pharmacy!
