Got our call this morning and hubby is now scheduled for his heart cath on the 26th-so 2 weeks to wait. We have our instructions and now just pray things are stable till then. Waiting isn't either one of our strong suits!
He has no energy and even though he wears a c-pap mask at nite, he says he is tired all the time and it feels like he just can't get enough air in. I wish I did know what was causing this as he was doing good till about 6 weeks ago and it gets steadily worse. However, about 12 years ago he had something similar where he could hardly walk from our house to the mailbox and back without being wiped out for the day but that didn't last more than 6 weeks and they ran all kinds of tests - except for a cath - back then and came up with nothing. I don't know if this is related but until today, I hadn't thought of this so will make a call to the dr.
He didn't walk with us this morning as he takes my dad for coffee and donuts on Tues morning. We had been walking later, but getting too hot now so we walk about 6:30 in the morning to beat the heat.
He tried to help me paint some vents in the outside of our house and he was quite dizzy so had him sit down but again, it only lasted a few minutes and cleared up. Wish we could be at the dr when these episodes happen but of course it never does! But about 3 years ago he was in the hospital when he had one of these bouts of severe chest pain and they couldn't figure it out then either but again, they didn't go in to see if there was any blockage. Different drs, different hospitals, different towns-hmmm is there a pattern to this???
Thanks everyone for your encouraging words and prayers. They mean a great deal to us both. I am trying to back off and relax a bit-even read a magazine this afternoon!!
God Bless you my wonderful Spark friends.
