My dad...mixed news...

Heading to bed now...but first a quick update.

My dad had three blockages in his heart.  2 were stented, but one was not able to be, due to difficult location at the very bottom turn of the right coronary artery and the fact that there were already 2 stents in that artery.

So, depending on his ekg and if he has pain he may be home tomorrow.

BUT, in two weeks he will have stress test given by his cardiac surgeon.  If he shows any signs of "problem/stress" then it will be off to open heart for bypass surgery.  IF, he makes it through the stress test with flying colors then he can just not do it, but the next time, and there probably will be a next time, he will HAVE to have the bypass/open heart surgery.

So, we shall see.  He will definitely now have to be on more meds than he has been, which he is not happy about, but he will deal with it.

Thanks for the prayers...keep them coming please.  I am exhausted physically and emotionally from the stress and worry.  I have been crying constantly since I got home at 8pm.

Be well - more tomorrow,

Dawn
