It's pretty benign compared to what I could go with but I promised I wouldn't.

Adding you to Team Zombie!

I have a serious heart condition, serious enough to be on the transplant list. Picture having your doctor take your blood pressure, get 92/67, and say that I guess that's the best that your ticker can do today.

Did you ever stare at a cardiologist in the eyes laying flat in a CCU bed who came in to tell you that he was going to put you out on permanent disability, and tell him point blank that you wanted a referral to Dr. Kevorkian if they wouldn't let you work? Told him point blank that I didn't want to live if I couldn't work and became a burden on society.

He sent me home to die with a central IV line and 24/7 heart medicine portable infusion pump. Had to do daily vitals at 5:00 AM every morning and upload to their mothership, including weight, temperature, blood pressure, pulse, glucose stick, blood oxygen, etc. Weekly home nurse visits (most at my office at work) to change the central IV dressing and do a full lab blood draw. Change IV bags and batteries every 48 hours on my own. Oh, and no swimming or showers!

After two years of me not dying, he decided that it was time to taper down the IV. As he put it, he is aware of only 10 patients who were removed from it...and 5 were still alive. This is the first time that I ever searched the web to see what was in those IV bags, mostly to see what the recommended step-down procedure was. Believe it or not, there was no procedure, because it was never approved or intended for use longer than 48 hours - except as a comfort aid in end-of-life scenarios. The home nurse and her company didn't even have a written procedure or paperwork to turn off the IV on a live patient! April 15th is the second anniversary of IV turnoff day, so I guess that the record is now 6 of 11.

Long story short, I still follow the vitals routine every single morning at 5:00 AM, entering it into the Health App in my iPhone for later reference.

Don't mock this temp-taker, because I am still an extremely high risk for COVID and am monitoring my vitals religiously and washing my hands so much that they are literally bleeding from dry skin.....
