Update on my dad


Recommended Posts

Just incase some don't remember my dad was having tests done to see if there was a problem with his heart. Well the doctor does feel there is some blockage and he is to go to see a cardiologist and have a heart catheterization. Dad says he will go for the initial visit, but doesn't want to do anything till mom is home and feeling better. The doctor said it wasn't an emergency but that he didn't want him waiting too long. I did't argue with him, I just figured get him to the first visit and see what the cardiologist says. Thanks again for all your prayers.

Hi Millie,

I don't knwo if you remember my post about my husband and his heart problems? Anyway, he went to the ER for something entirely different and his monitor went haywire. They were certain he had a heart problem...just not sure what it was....probably a blockage.....

He had to stay in the hospital for a few days (he went in before the weekend) and that monday they did the Heart Cath. They explained to us that if there was a minor blockage, they would use the balloon to remove it right then and there- if it were more serious then they would do more serious surgery at a later time.

Well, two hours after the cath and after 4 days of worrying like crazy...there was NO BLOCKAGE. there wasn't any heart problem at all. He was fine.

Didn't mean to hijack your post, I just wanted to let you know that many times, this procedure is just a precaution. That alot of times they do this just to rule something serious out.

I hope that is the case here.

Keeping your dad, mom and you in my prayers.

Hang in there.

Isn't it funny what passes as good news on a normal day?

You are so right! When we left the doctors I wasn't sure how to feel, a bit relieved that it was an emergency or worried.

Katie thanks for sharing your story. I hope that is true, but since my dad is pretty over weight and his father had heart disease I have a feeling they will find blockage.

Don thanks I will tell my dad!
