First of all I would like to say thanks for all your kind words, thoughts and prayers they mean more than you will ever know. Even got a smile out of Dad today when I told him that there were lots of wonderful people all over the country that he had never met that were praying for him! So I just wanted to let ya'll know the angiogram today did not give us good news. They were unable to fix the damage with stents or angioplasty. Turns out that he has apparently had 1 or 2 heart attacks before and either didn't notice them or ignored the symptoms. The damage is extensive but the blockage is even worse. While none of it is at 100% blocked it is in the 90's. So...Thursday morning they will do a quintuple bypass on him and hopefully fix him up that way. He is trying to joke that he hopes they use a new Homelite with a good sharp chain to cut open his chest but I knew he was scared when he refused to watch the informational video with me that explains the procedure and the aftercare that he will need. I caught him glancing a time or two but for the most part he turned his attention to CNN throughout it. I know he's in a great hospital (rated in the top 10 in nation) and has a surgeon with an impeccable reputation but I will admit I'm scared and damn worried here! And then as if the day couldn't possibly get any worse as I was pulling out of the hospital parking lot to head home for the night I get a call on my cell from my son and he has just been in a wreck two hours away! Seems a little old lady had her turn signal on but didn't turn and T-Boned his little Civic with a "big ol SUV"!! Thank God he is ok, shook up but ok, just his little car is not so ok!! So yeah it's been a pretty bad day around here!!

Thank goodness your son is alright and your father will be just fine too. Like you said before he's a strong man, and he will fight the fight to come back from this. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

My prayers continue to be with you and your family.
I agree with Y, although this is still a serious and scarey surgery. They now do it every day with an extremely high success rate.
I'm glad that your son is alright........
Make sure you get some rest too. Okay?
Hugs to you ,Prayers for you......

Sue's statement right there, would be the most uplifting news I would want to hear if me or someone I really cared about, were in the same situation! It just shows how far the medical field has come and its only scratched the surface of things to come for people! There's always hope!

I wish your father a speedy recovery and glad that your son is ok. Autos can be replaced.


May 30 @ 8:46AM  
I hope all goes well.

Just keep your chin up and don't forget to take care of you so that you can be there for him k? Prayers will remain in effect til you tell us he is home and doin ok.

My 88 year old granma just had hip replacement surgery.. and she is doin great.. your dad will do great too.

So sorry to hear about your Dad and your son sweetie. I'm glad that your son is okay and your Dad will be as well. He will be in my prayers as well and I don't blame him one bit for being scared. I'm not scared of much but let a doctor come at me with a knife and I'll wet my pants LOL. Stay strong sugar but take care of yourself as well.

May 30 @ 11:52AM  
Oh sweetie sorry to hear about your son glad hes ok....

And your Dad is still in our thoughts and prayers... We wish him a fast and healthy recovery...

My father in law had it done twice now and at 71 he is doing real good

I just wish Mr hotbox would take it easy as well... He also has 90% blockage and a leaky heart valve to boot... He had a heart attack and age 36 and he will be 40 this year... God I wish he would stop smoking

We will pray extra hard on Thursday...

Lots of love hun
