I'm guessing this diagnosis caught you both by surprise but I'm certain that catching this before any more serious health problems occurred is the better outcome.

I've been on the table myself and am simply amazed at the advanced state of medical care. I'm certain your wife is getting the best care possible.

Hoping and praying for a quick and complete recovery for you guys.

You have my prayers for a full and quick recovery.
I appreciate your keeping it quiet. It stands in contrast to people who can’t wait to post their latest bowel movements on social media.

"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Excellent news! Prayers sent. Also, please take good care of yourself. I’m sure she will have an excellent recovery, but it will take time for her to heal and it will be stressful on you both.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

I've been keeping this quite, but my wife has been in the Hospital since last Wednesday. She went into a "Doc in a box" after work last Wednesday thinking she had a chest cold because "her chest felt tight". They did an EKG and said, nope, we just called an ambulance to take you to the hospital. They did some more tests, and admitted her. The next day (Thursday) they did a stress test and echocardiogram, identified 99% blockage in two arteries.

She was transferred to "the big hospital" on Thursday night. They spent the weekend trying to find a surgical slot for her. They got her in today. Over 5 hours in surgery. She had a quadruple bypass on the Left Main Artery, Circumflex Artery, and left Anterior Descending artery.
One of the blockages was between 5-6” in length.
There is little or no indication of a heart attack.
All in all the prognosis is good!

Carol will spend the rest of the night and all of tomorrow in the ICU.

Prayers and good thoughts would be appreciated.

My wife is a nurse in an open-heart ICU. Feel free to email if you have any questions or just need to vent.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

best wishes for a speedy recovery. Having recently had my chest cracked open I can relate to the experience. No fun for sure. It seems they caught it in time to fix without damage to the vitals.

I will keep you guys in prayers for full recovery, long life, and that your mind is rested.

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
