I was not taken for an echocardiogram the previous night, so I assumed I had misheard and I was programmed in for 8:00 a.m.
The EP came to see me at 9:00 a.m. and told me that it should have been done the previous night, but they were still waiting for an appointment. He was not expecting any issues, so as soon as I had the echo I could go home.
After several prompts from the nursing station they finally brought a portable echo station down from the ICU at 3:00 p.m. and used me as a teaching aid for a medical student. I finally left at 4:15 p.m.
