Now that the boiler is operating you will need to open the windows.


Well, yeah, that's how we regulate the heat here.

I cracked, which is to say that I found my glasses and the thermostat instructions. The house is nice and warm now, but it took (a) the wife threatening to call a tech and (b) about 20 minutes of teeth-gnashing as I deciphered an awful owner's manual at 3 AM. Funny how motivating the prospect of a $100 service call can be to a cheap-ass like me.

I gave in over the weekend. My wife and I were going to be gone from Friday until Sunday, and we couldn't leave our 22 year-old cat in a cold house. If we had stayed home, she would have been fine, cuddled up with one of us.

I finally turned the heat on this past Friday. The endless cloudy days did me no favors.It was a consistent 58 degrees at most inside.

She's made a 100% recovery. When she first came home from the hospital her hearing was really sensitive and the vision in her right eye was a little wonky, but that's worked itself out. They did a procedure on her last month where they shocked her heart back into sinus rhythm and she's been good with that ever since. Her final follow up was last week. Vitals all looked good, ticker ticking away like it should be. Her doctor's have been amazed at the completeness of her recovery. She's actually been discharged and doesn't need to go back to the hospital unless she starts having any problems again. Chances are that we'll probably have to go back as there's a pretty good shot that she'll go back into Afib at some point (which is what caused this in the first place), but now we know what to look for if it happens again

All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Like I said, earlier, thank God I happened to be home that day. The docs have told me that getting her to the hospital so quickly (under an hour from the time it happened) was key to all of this happening the way it has

Thanks........scary as hell, but really, really glad we got the outcome we did. That still doesn't change the fact that hell isn't warm enough for her. I cleaned the flame sensor on the furnace yesterday because it popped a code and shut down. So I called home today from work and asked if the house was warm and she said, "Yeah, kinda....". Which is the new , "Yeah, the heat if good and everything is fine"

If I had a nickel for every time I had to answer the question, "Is it cold in here?", I'd be a rich man :D
