update...

Well hubs went for the angioplasty this morning at 7:30 and they found out that one of his arteries was 95% blocked, however all the other arteries were in great shape!!

So he had the shunt put in and all is well ;) He comes home tomorrow morning!!

Dealing with the stress has been hard!!! I so wanted to either eat or have a glass of wine last night, however i didn't ;)

And an NSV this morning after leaving the hospital i phoned the bus # and it said the next bus would be in 25 mins. I thought about it for a minute and then thought, you know what i bet i can beat that bus to the terminal just by walking fast ;) And off i went and yep i beat it!!

So now to get ready for work.

I just want to take a second to say how wonderful the nurses and the doctors were. They listened to anything my husband and i were asking and took the time to tell us exactly what was happening!! They are the best ;)

  11. New reader to your blog and while I was saddened to hear you and your husband had to go through this, in retrospect, how lucky that they found the blockage and were able to resolve the problem! Three years ago my Mom wasn’t feeling well (nausea). It turned out she was having a heart-attack and needed 3 shunts. I feel tremendously lucky that her minor heart-attack actually saved her life :)

  13. So glad to hear the problem has been found and dealt with. Good luck on helping him change his diet/lifestyle in whatever areas that applies!

    My FIL had a minor heart attack this year as well - revealing major blockage resulting in 2 stents. Thank God for those minor attacks!
