Update On My Family

Chris is a bit weak today.  That is due to low red blood hemoglobin.  She is receiving blood today and should go home tonight.  She is in shock that she has had a heart attack.  As we are.  My brother has too, Several years ago, only he was only 48.  And he quadruple bypass surgery.  Thankfully, my sister didn’t need that. 


this was taken just before dennis’ bypass surgery.


My dad in law is about the same.  He looked a bit better today.  I guess all the extra fluids made him look better, I hope he is feeling better where he can go back to his “home” at the nursing facility.  He does better when he is a routine.   Anyway, I appreciate all your prayers and support for our family.  On another note….I found out this morning my other sister’s son is also having some medical issues.  When it rain’s it pours!!  He went to the ER this morning.  He will be having an endoscopy and colonoscopy this week.  He is only 22.  Very young to have all that happening.  Bless him.  Thanks again for all your bloggy love!!

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!!!
