Above video demonstrates procedure my mother just experienced. Her doctor used the “rotoblator” method, then inserted 3 stents, or wire sleeves, that expand to keep the artery open for optimal blood flow.
Mom was awake during the procedure, rested about an hour in recovery, then moved to a private room for overnight observation.
Leesburg Regional Medical Center is an amazingly good quality hospital with an excellent cardiac unit. The doctors and staff take time with patients and family.
What is equally amazing is the quality of soup in their cafeteria! Hey, Doc, get a grip woodjaa??? Your mom just had heart surgery and you are discussing cafeteria food?
Iknowiknowiknow. But, I became a huge fan of LRMC cafeteria’s soup during my dad’s surgery and stay in 2008. For $1.60, you get a 16 ounce bowl of home-made soup of the day. They usually have two varieties. Changes daily.
This Wednesday’s special was a spicy chicken gumbo. Yum-ME! It’s part of their “Soul Food” daily offering. The photo doesn’t show the chunky goodness and the spicy andouille sausage that I dredged up from this 3PM sampling.
The garden patio is a welcome refuge from the clinical environment. This rainy afternoon provided a perfect soup environment experience. If you ever visit Leesburg, Florida, MUST LUNCH at LRMC.
Back to mom…Sprung her from “jail”, exactly 24 hours after admittance. She is now relaxing at home with new puppy, Cody.
