This place has been a part of our lives way, WAY too much in 2015. But we are thankful. It is our #1 option for health care.
Yesterday was a tough day for the family. He was wheeled in to have what we assumed was a stent put in to take care of whatever blockage he had. He came out with nothing done other than a canned diagram showing a heart and 4 blockages…1 vein was 95% blocked at the top and 100% blocked at the bottom which left the possibility that the lower area of his heart was receiving no blood which meant it was damaged, dead and scarred…but there was hope that the 25% blood getting through on the other half had saved it enough to warrant bypass surgery. And…thankfully…that is the story. It is comatose right now with enough blood to keep it alive. In the grand scheme of things – this could not be better news.
They are transferring him to Saint Luke’s on the Plaza this afternoon where he will meet with the cardiologists and surgeons to make a decision which route he is going to take. Stents or bypass. Our referring cardiologist said there are decisions to make but we need all of the facts to make that decision. Due to the locations of his blockages, this is not a get him in – put the stent in – send him home. She called it a little more complicated, thus the cardiac center on the Plaza.
Everything is not perfect yet, but we have hope.
To those who pray and those sending the positive thru the universe, we thank you and ask you not to stop doing what you are doing.
Much love from us to you.
Until next time….
