Just a little News

So sorry I missed Pink Saturday this week. Had a health emergency with my Hubby. As I have let you know before we live out in the country, pretty far from everything, About 100 miles from our doctors and hospital. On Friday, He came in after going to the Barber with slight chest pain, After a while and a couple baby aspirin I decided to check his blood pressure and it was very high, 190 over 112, he never has blood pressure problems, I told him to get ready as we were going the 100 miles to the hospital. Stopped at a local clinic for her to get his pressure and it was high, she gave him aspirin and told me to take him on. When we got there they put him in the trauma unit, EKG was normal. Blood test showed heart enzymes high so they admitted him, Saturday morning had a heart cath and had to have a stint in for a 95% blockage, This makes him four stints, We have been so lucky and every time got him to the hospital before a heart attack so no damage to the heart. God is so Good to us. We are back home now. He has lung disease so I worry so much about any surgery he may have as it would be hard on his lungs.
Hope to be back in the grove for next Saturday.
Hugs,
Judy

Judy, so happy to read that all turned out well. Sounds as if you were on top of it. Good for you! You and hubby take care of each other. God bless and He does doesn't he!

Your husband sounds like mine to a certain degree. We live a hour and 15 minutes from our hospital and doctors. We have made it with gods help each time.The last time they put in a stent. We know that he has another blockage. They won't do anything until they absolutely have because he has a bleeding disorder among other things and you don't know if he will clot or not. I really understand where your are coming from. Take care of yourself and hubby. I will keep you in my prayers.
