Good/Bad News

Monday, May 25, 2009

Today I talked with Shelia (Jack's wife) and he went through the heart catarization test fine but did have 2 blockages (80 and 95%) and had 3 stints put in. He is staying in the CICU for observation tonight and if everything is fine, may come home tomorrow. The good news is that everything went fine and the testing is over. The bad news is that he has been diagnosed with corenary artery disease. I hope and pray that this will be a wake-up call for them to start eating healthier. You can tell I am not medically inclined as I know I have not spelled things correctly, but hopefully, folks will understand what I am saying.

Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts. (((HUGS)))

    Hi Linda Kay
    Poor ole Jack,bless. I am glad he's on the mend and like you hope he's sensible from now on.
    Sometimes it takes a jolt like this to make people realise how important lookng after yourself is and how important those around you are to you.
    I should think the hospital will give him a post op pep talk about diet and exercise. The rest will be up to him.
    Sending positive thoughts for his recovery

    I will put Jack in my prayers! Hopefully he will take better care of himself from now on,like you said. It is good that his operation went well. It is good that they have a friend in you.

    Only time will tell. I'm sure the doctor's are giving them the best advice and would be surprised if a change of diet wasn't one of the suggestions, including exercise.
