Everyone has been so nice and supportive so I wanted to let you know the status of Tom’s Cardiac Catheterization today. It turns out it is a very good thing this was done because he had a 95% blockage in one place and a 75% blockage in another. He was most definitely headed for a heart attack. They did a balloon angioplasty in one location and put in a stent in the other location. It was a very involved and lengthy procedure this time because of the location of the two blockages. He was admitted to the hospital and we are on a wait and see basis as to whether or not he can come home tomorrow.
I want to thank everyone for your very kind and helpful comments, good wishes and prayers. I kept reading over them on my phone the whole time I was waiting to hear the results of the procedure. Even though I was waiting alone all of your kind messages helped me to feel a little less alone. I responded to some comments last night but not today, however I do want you all to know they helped. I probably won’t be posting or commenting for at least a few days as we get everything sorted out and get him home. I just now got home tonight after being at the hospital since very early this morning. I am going back early tomorrow morning in hopes of catching the doctor on his rounds. In the meantime, I only want to get something to eat and crash with my two sweet cats. Thank you all again!
