'Twas the Night Before Christmas…

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the lab,

Not a patient with chest pain, not even a stab…

The stockings were hung at the bedside with care,

And all of the cath lab technicians were there…

The patients were snuggled, our sheets were all clean,

As visions of a-fib danced over the screen…

Once in a while, my nurse would come by,

To say it was only a minor MI…

Soon I will go down the hall to a table,

Where if my cath lab surgeon is able,

To clear the blockage in a main artery,

The picture of health again I shall be…

He was all dressed in blue from his head to his toe,

The monitors beeped and emitted a glow…

Through my radial artery the catheter went,

Snaking through vessels to deliver a stent…

And when it was done and my clot was removed,

My health and prognosis immediately improved…

With a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye,

He said it went well and he wished me good-bye…

On his way out the door, he turned with good cheer,

Have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
