Matters of the heart

This afternoon my Dad suffered a mild heart attack.  They found three blockages and placed a stent in one of these.  They will have to place the other two stents separately in the next few months.  Barring any set backs, he should be fully recovered within three months.  He will be in the hospital for the next two evenings. I am hopeful that all will go well and he will come home Friday.

I wanted to let everyone know about this so you wouldn't wonder why there may not be any new updates for a couple of days.  I will be up at the hospital quite a bit of the day tomorrow I would imagine.  Keep him in your thoughts just like you have with Sweetheart.

Sweetheart is still doing fine by the way and is on track to be spayed Tuesday.  Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and I hope I get my Dad home safe and sound for Christmas.

Love to you all.

  5. I'm sorry to hear about your dad!

    I come from a long line of heart had three heart attacks, a quintuple bypass and another heart attack, then four strokes! Mom has had two heart attacks and a quintuple bypass, my brother had a heart attack, and a few months ago, I had a very mild one.

    These days, medicine is so advanced that your dad may never have trouble again. I wish him well in his recovery!
