A Quick Update

Just have a minute before we head over to the hospital...

My dad is going to the cardiac cath lab this morning.  They are going to do the angiogram and then put in stents into any artery blockages they find, if they are able. 

Please pray that they can and that is all that will be needed.  Otherwise, we have to talk about open heart, and we are really hoping to avoid that.

The odds are good, my dad only has 2 stents right now, and the doc is optimistic that he can add a few more and avoid open heart this time as well. 

I am guessing that next time we won't be as lucky, but we will be happy with just this one.

To everyone who left me comments and prayers already - I feel them.  Thank you so very much.  You are all wonderful and I remembered each one of you as I drifted off to sleep last night, counting my blessings.

I will update more later.

Be well,

Dawn
