Heart Attack

Hi All!

Thanks for all the warm and wonderful comments and promises of prayer you left for me to find here today. God bless you all.

It was determined this morning that Dad had a heart attack yesterday. He is in having a cath now to define the next step to take. When I know more, of course I will keep you updated.

Here is a link to some helpful information in understanding the tear in the aorta. It seems it sometimes can be treated with drug therapy.

Mom told me yesterday about the scare with your Dad. Many prayers are being said for him and like you said, it's all in God's hands. I was looking so forward to seeing them but I am glad they hadn't left yet.

I just dropped in to thank you for commenting on my blog and for joining us in the Femininity Challenge. Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me when you're obviously concerned with the much more important things happening in your life. I do hope your Dad is OK. If it's any consolation, my father had a heart attack about five years ago and has been right as rain ever since so it might not be as bad as it immediately seems. I'll remember you and your dad in my prayers.

Thanks to all of you! It's 1:30 in the morning, I just got in from the hospital. It seems he has 2 blocked arteries. A double by pass surgery is being discussed. He had 5 bypasses in 1999. Thanks for your continued prayers. They are greatly appreciated more than I can even express here!
