Update on my hubby...

Well it has been a long day today but a good one. We got to the Heart Hospital at 8 am after all the paper work and prepping for the "procedure" he got in the heart cath lab at 10:30 but there was still one person in front of him so the doc didn't actually begin until a little after 11 am. By 11:45 doc came out to visit with us and told us that he did have some restriction of blood flow in the lower arterial, however the problem was an area above his stints. There was a blockage that wasn't there the last time they went in the day of his heart attacks. He said that he thought this blockage was caused by all the trauma and everything he went through the day of the heart failure so they stinted him today. So he now has 6...yes that's right...6 stints. He hit the recovery room and shortly after that I went to sit with him. He was able to get up and move around about 7 hours after the procedure. I called to check with his nurse tonight before this post and she said that he is resting and doing very well. As long as everything goes well tonight they said I will be able to bring him home tomorrow before lunch!!! Wooohoo!
Thank you for your sweetness, thoughts and prayers. This time things went so smooth! I feel very good about things this time around and I am very positive about the outcome.
Thanks for checkin' in on us. Hugs to you all!

I am glad everything went well. Tell Mike he needs to stop adding spare parts. Love to both of you.

You know even though I wasn't there this time...my heart was with you.

ROFLMAO at LB's comment about spare parts.
