I trust everyone had a beautiful Valentine's Day. My husband and I went out to dinner on Saturday night and spent a wonderful, quite day at home on Sunday.
Yes we did hear from the stress test the very next day. I did not want to post about it until after Valentine's day as my husband did not want to think about it for a few days. It did not go well and we as well as the doctors were not expecting this. You see this was just a precaution before the bypass on his leg could be schedule. They knew he has two insufficient blockages in two insufficient arteries and wanted to make sure they were still okay. Which they were. You see what blew us away was this was his best check-up in 13 years. Cholesterol was 7 points from being perfect. Blood pressure was good.
They found a new blockage in the front of his heart. They are very concerned. His appointment was set up today to 1:30 Monday. My friends there were no warnings. He has had no chest pain.
This all goes back to a test he had a few years ago. 4 drops of his blood were taken and tested. He was 99.5 percent predestined to have heart decease. Both of his parents were gone to heaven when he had his first heart attack. (both from heart attacks). His Aunt said when he was small he would turn blue and pass out. He was taken to many doctors and no one knew. So he has always had these problems and they started showing up when he was 45 with his first heart attack. As you all know he has stints in his heart, neck, groin areas, Ilka arteries and one kidney. He has 5 more blockages in his left leg. We were scheduled to go to the doctor Feb. 23rd to talk about scheduling his leg bypass. Of course this will be put on hold for now.
Please pray for him, for his doctors to make the right diagnose and for them to have the skills to repair his heart. Please also pray for me as he relies on me for so many things. I pray for the Lord's leadership and wisdom in the days ahead as we have many decisions to make.
I will post on Monday and give you an update. Thank-you all for your love, and prayers.
