On Me Sister Midwestern Mama

Well, some of you know my sister C, Midwestern Mama With a New York Heart, she suffered a mild heart heart attack last night.  She is doing much better now that she had surgery and had a stent put in.  Of course she will write and give all the good and gory details as she lovingly does.  I just wanted to let everyone that reads me that mostly reads her know.  I know you will be praying and sending good thoughts her way.  She had been having chest pain all week and taking her nitroglycerine.  Well, on Friday night it didn’t seem to go away.  They went to the ER.  After doing the preliminary tests, Diane went home.  The enzymes came back positive and C called her.  The did the heart catherization in the morning.  Her blockage was 90%.  It was the same blockage she had last time that they could not reach that was 40% blocked.  The got it this time, the lil booger. She will have to change diet and excercise per doctors orders.  On another note, the same day, my father in law went into the ER this morning with an acute bladder and kidney infection.  He is in the nursing home here and has to wear a catheter.  He is prone to urinary tract infections a lot.  When my husband got to the nursing home this morning, his foley bag was full of blood!!  Well they transported him by ambulance and have been in the ER all day.  They decided to keep him and treat him aggressively for dehydration and bladder and kidney infections.  Today was a very stressful day….hope you all had a better weekend!!  Ours should go better from this point on I think.  Happy Valentines peoples!!!

Oh my gosh, I'm so worried about C, I forgot to mention that I'll also be praying for your father-in-law.

Any updates on C?
