kitkathi Posted February 25, 2005 Share Posted February 25, 2005 If you all recall a few weeks ago he went to the ER for SOB etc. They ended up doing angioplasty on a completely blocked artery. They were going to wait a little while until they took out his pacemaker and put in a defibr. He just hasn't been feeling much better. On Wed he had to go to his ONC to do bloodwork before his last chemo cycle (precautionary). The nurse saw him get out of the car and almost fall so she rushed to the parking lot to help him. His blood pressure was so low that they had to send him to the ER. They ended up doing some sort of scope procedure to see if there were any blood clots around heart; but nothing. After the procedure his BP went sky high so they had to put him in ICU. Now he is having the defibr. put in this morning. I wonder just how much more his poor little heart can take? It seems like every week I'm getting a call from my brother that Dad is in the ER. If his cancer returns I just don't know if his body can take anymore treatment (although this time round he has tolerated it extremely well). It seems like he could use a new heart but we all know that would be totally out of the question. Anyway, sorry for complaining...really just looking for a few prayers for Dad today. I know that the prayers are being maxed out lately with so many people needing them.......Thanks kitkathi ------update---- Pop's made it through the surgery okay. I'll be able to talk to him tomorrow when he is in a normal room.. Thx for the prayers!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
