My 80 year old father was complaining of headaches and disorientation. My sister took him the emergency ward at the local hospital to get diagnosed. they said he had a 92% arterial blockage in his left carotid artery. The told him he needed fast surgery and said they wanted to keep him in the hospital until the surgery could be set up to remove the blockage. Scary stuff.
The doctor did his usual spiel about cholesterol, blah, blah, blah.
After the doctor left the nurse came in with dinner; Fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and some mushy booger colored substance on the side that maybe have once been green beans before being canned then boiled mercilessly for an hour.
I went out and brought him a gourmet omelet from the cafeteria. Visitors eat better than the patients.
My dad gave up eggs 10 years ago on advice from another doctor.
