Update on my hubby

Mike is doing so much better! He had the balloon pump removed the day before yesterday. This was under his aorta and helping to supporting his heart as it was over taxed by the heart attacks. They also backed him off the IV meds and started giving his meds to him orally. He was able to get out of bed and stand; his legs were very shaky as he had not used them for 3 days. Slowly, he was able to stand and walk around his room. They got him to sit up for several hours and he started eating solid food. Today they removed the rest of the IV's and is able to get up and walk down the hall. During this process he developed fluid on his lungs so they have begun giving him medicine to help reduce that. He has passed the 72 hour "window of worry" and they are ready to put him out in a regular room on the hospital floor. They think that he may be able to come home on Wed or Thurs of this week! I want to tell everyone thank you for praying for us I know that he is here because of all of the prayers. God is so good! I didn't leave his side for 3 days and all of the emotions of everything caught up with me yesterday. I had only had about 10 hours of sleep in 4 days and thought since he was stable I should go home and get some rest...spend some time with my kids other than just seeing them in the hospital. It was good that I got away. I feel much better today. I need to stay positive; we have a lot of changes a head of us with diet and exercise. I can do anything through he that strengthens me! Thanks for checking on us! Keep us in your prayers.

Everyday gets better and we are all here for you and Mike both. You are stronger then you think and you will make it through this. Think of what you have made it through in your life...remember last week we were just talking about GOD won't put us through something he knows we can't make it through. Have faith.

Fabulous news; I'm so excited for both of you! However, I can only imagine the fear that enters your hearts and Satan loves that. Keep leaning on God; he'll take you every step of the way. Thinking and praying for you!!!
