Don't have a coronary!

Men just don't listen. As evidenced by the fact that my husband went and did just that - had a coronary. Technically an "inferior myocardial infarction." But you know what? God has heard our prayers and is answering "Yes" to them so far, and Rick is resting comfortably in an excellent cardiac unit at a Portland-area hospital after having an angioplasty and getting a stent. After the fear and uncertainty of earlier in the day, I am practically giddy with relief. Still praying, though. Would appreciate yours, as well.

Michelle ... We went through that too. (5 stents .. two surgeries) Lots of lots of prayers coming your way.

Be sure he goes through cardio-rehab and takes his meds. Diet, of course, is important but yours sounds pretty healthy!!!

Realize how very blessed you are and rejoice in God's love ....

Take care of yourself

Wow Michelle,
My prayers are with you all. I know how scary this stuff can be after my Mom had her problems a few years ago. It sounds like though they caught his at a good point and hopefully without much damage. Which is a blessing for sure.
Take care and keep us updated when you can!

Prayers from here, too, of course. When I read your title - I thought you were kidding! I wish you had been. Medicine has improved so much, hopefully Rick's better than new very soon!

Oh Michelle!!! What a scare! It's times like this that friends can be a comfort...especially PRAYING friends. Doing just that for Rick, you and little Brian too.

Prayers to you all! What is with our "guys" this summer??? Mine went and had a minor stroke...so I can definitely relate to the feeling of giddiness when the worst has passed...

Small wonder we women cannot get anything done around here...what with the menfolk laid up...wait till he comes home and recuperates...he'll drive you batty. But that is when are supposed to listen to the warning of these little health crises - love them every day!

Michelle said...

Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes! Rick had an uneventful night and will probably be moved out of CCU today. More info when I have it.

Very scary!!! Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.

Sharon said...

He can consider this a warning, as scary as it was for all three of you. We are the stewards of our bodies. I'm so glad that he gets a second chance to practice better stewardship.

Nancy K. said...

How frightening! Special prayers for Rick and for you and Brian as well.

((((((BIG hug!))))))

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Praise God for his grace and mercy! I know all will be well in his gentle hands. Tell Rick that Dennis has had two by pass surgeries 16 years apart. God formed our bodies to give us all the spare parts we need to repair them...we love you and are always here if you need to talk.
The cozy cottage says heads up! <><

You guys are in my prayers!
