Why am I not surprised???
Apparently, his heart (well, it IS a muscle) is beating irregularly and they are going to apply an electrical current to him. I think this is where (at least on TV) they put the paddles on his chest and everybody shouts CLEAR.
Not sure what exactly is clear, except that they are gonna mini-electric chair the person, but what the heck.
I wonder why a 36 year old guy would have an irregular heart beat that needed to be shocked. Maybe it has something to do with him having so many other medical problems these past 4 years, who knows?
And I wonder why they had to fly him back to Houston to get this supposedly common shocking done – I mean, every ER and doctor’s office has those shock paddles. Maybe they want him seen by some famous cardiologist at St. Lukes?
But honestly, I’m exactly expecting real too much from Hampton. I’m just worried about who they would put in the rotation when, I mean IF, he goes down. I have this terrible sinking feeling it would be Paulino. They luuuuuvvv the guy the way they LUUUUVVVVED Zeke Astacio a couple years back.
