Good News

Just got back from seeing Dad. They actually plan to discharge him tomorrow, and already have him up and walking around. He looks great - everyone is feeling very positive.

Regarding medical details, he did have two stents put in - one was for an area of 70% blockage. One more has yet to be put in, but they will have him come back in a couple of months to do that after his new medicine has kicked in and he has recovered a bit. There was some moderate damage to the heart because of the lack of oxygen to that muscle during the attack, but the doctors feel pretty comfortable that the new medications will compensate. Praise the Lord.

I want to thank you for all of your kind words, email, comments, and prayers. I am truly blessed in so many ways.

So glad that your dad is OK. Sounds like a frightening time and a very stressful weekend.

You and your dad continue to be in my prayers.

Travis and I love you guys very much and were glad we were able to do something, even if it was just sitting in the hospital with you guys and keeping you company for five plus hours. :o) I am so glad dad is feeling better. Travis said he had a nice chat with he and mom when he went to visit dad today, and that dad looked great. We love you, and as always, we are here 24/7 if you need anything. Love ya, Stephie and Travie
