HE'S HOME NOW...

Thanks everyone for all your prayers and good wishes.. He's home now..
Hospital stays are the worse. I hate the smell of hospitals hubby is one who
hates being tied down to bed so this was a good place for him to make him rest otherwise he
doesn't. He has a series of more testing to go thru but he has no blockage right now which is
the best thing.. They gave us medication to stablize his heart he has six medications for various
things.. A diet to follow which will do both of us good cause I will be on it with him , exercise
This was caused by stress it awful what stress can do to your body. He needs to be careful with
his heart rate should be at 100 and it was 130 when they admitted him and 150 when he had
his heart attack in 2006 They kept him for various reasons the other being his blood pressure at
145/97 so between the combo the doctor was the least bit happy.. Six hours in emergency for
him they couldn't get his rate down so they have to give him a 12 hr drip iv deal like they did when he had his heart attack the miracle of modern medicine.. I kept him home from work today to watch him. Follow up on the appts Make sure his meds are not missed.. I set up a pill box for him otherwise he'll forget to.. ugh.. The heart indeed is nothing to fool with.. He has to comply with the test and orders of Doctor and I will be here to help him implement it all. It's pretty darn scarry him in the hospital like that not knowing what's wrong how they can fix it. Modern medicine has come so far these days..
I just want to thank everyone for all the emails, phone calls, and prayers they have sent our way I appreciate it all.

So glad that your hubby is home and I pray that he continues to do well! Have a safe trip down here this weekend! Is it the Macayo's in Surprise you will be at? I will see what I can workout to make it if you are still coming down.
