Hi everyone~Just as I was trying to get back to blogging after being away for so long with my mom’s open heart surgery….we find through a series of everyday tests, that my 50 year old husband Steve was having heart problems as well. After tests and seeing a cardiac doctor he was urged to get an angiogram, results were….by-pass surgery! WHAT, how can this be happening? AGAIN….
You just never know which path you will be asked to go down, and the lessons learned are always so welcomed and gratitude pours from your soul. I have always believed in everything happens for a reason and I believe that more and more each day.
Steve had 2 blocked arteries at 100%, and one at 60%. He never had a symptom and was told he had 2 heart attacks or events. Crazy….thank God for a Dr. asking for a stress test. Now he is, no WAS a smoker…but heart disease runs through both sides of his family, as does mine. So much of this was genetic as well as effects from smoking. He was operated on Friday Oct. 22, and much to our surprised released Monday evening. He has done fabulous; praise God and his Dr.’s. He is at home for about 3 months since he works offshore, he goes back to the surgeon in 2 weeks. He is walking and doing little things, unable to drive or ride for that matter. He is not one to sit around, so this is bothering him a bit. I am trying to not hover over him and give him some space…lol. I came very close to losing my best friend and neither of us knew it. I am so grateful to everyone for thoughts and prayers and friendship! I feel like one luck girl…
I hope to be back with more good news soon, and maybe some art too. I just wanted to catch y’all up….if you haven’t all left me already. I plan to blog hop tonight, so see ya soon…..
Blessing to each and every one of you.
