Please Lord, Let it Go Good Tomorrow

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I didn't get to blog last evening, but DH finally got approved for the heart cath and it was scheduled for this morning. He was given some medicine to help clear the dye from his kidneys and extra fluid in the form of an IV to help flush them out so we were very hopeful today would finally give us answers. But that didn't happen. The dr found blockage when he attempted to go in thru his right going so he had to stop and tomorrow he will attempt to do it from his left groin area and if that has blockage he will use the wrist.
Dr. explained to me that he can't do anything about this blockage until he knows about his heart. First they take care of that then move on to the legs. DH has never been a smoker and had no leg pain or swelling and when listening to the heartbeat nothing seemed amiss in his leg sooo not sure what is going on.
I spent most of the day making sure he laid flat and didn't move the leg or cross them. Luckily he had some sedation and slept most of the day. I did get away for about an hour this afternoon as I needed to pick up my medicine at Wal-Mart and take my payment in and I returned the microwave I had bought earlier in the week for dad and since his old one is fine, no sense in having a 2nd one setting aorund in our way!
Once he was able to get up to go to the bathroom and had eaten his dinner, I told him I needed to get out early tonite so I could be there bright and early tomorrow. Tech that brought him back told me he was scheduled for 10 tomorrow and Dr came in tonite and said 7 am so I am planning to be there about 6:30, just in case. I want to be there before he goes in.
Tonite I actually got home before dark so I got out and worked in the gardens for about an hour. I also got dad's new grass watered good since I haven't been here to do it for a few days. Then went to pick up Abbie and brought her home.
Going to get to bed a little earlier tonite as 4-5 hours a nite isn't good enough and I feel totally wiped out tonite.

    Praying for you and your DH. Be sure to get the rest and sleep that you need. Take care of yourself so that you can continue to take care of your DH. I have also added you and hubby to the prayer chains of our local churches. Hope that is ok with you...we can never have too much prayer.

    I can empathize with the sleep deprivation, as I remember going from my mother's heart attack to my father's brain surgery...ugh! Going back and forth to the hospital, home, and errands... and trying to judge the Doctors' time schedules is absolutely an added headache.
    Please take care of yourself and allow others to help, as they can. I wish I were closer and able to help. I am still praying for you. God is stronger and more powerful...and in control.

    Sending hugs and love :)
