Gary's Heart

Gary's catheterization took place at around 8 AM this morning.  We had to be at the hospital by 6, so I could not believe that he did not wake me up until 5:15 to leave the house twenty minutes later...   I really needed more time.  But then again, I managed to walk out the door and be there on time so maybe I didn't need more time after all.

By 9:30 the doctor came out to talk to me and explained that one of Gary's main arteries was 99.9% blocked.  If he hadn't got in there when he did, it would have surely led to a heart attack.  The doctor was able to stent it, and that is a praise report!!!  We were so thankful that it could be taken care of without surgery.  

He will be staying the night in the hospital and coming home tomorrow.  

Thank you all so much for your best wishes and prayers.  It means so much to us!!  

Dear Dad,

Don't worry about me.  I'll be fine without you.  As long as you get better and come home real soon.  I'll keep your side of the bed warm for ya. 

Love, Your girl Gracie
