I am very, very happy to announce that I just brought Wayne home from the hospital!! He's looking and feeling great. I'm sure he will be back on the Forum very soon! I want to very much thank Ed Archer and my son, Rob, for helping to instigate Wayne's release (long story). If it wasn't for them, he might still be in the hospital. Now I just need to get through the hurdle of my mom's brain surgery tomorrow. I can't thank everybody enough for all the outpouring of get well wishes, prayers, and concerns.
Take care, always!
Thank you for the update.
Glad to hear he is receiving the best care possible.
God is Good
Thank you for keeping up informed.....we will continue to pray for both Wayne and your mom's good health.....especially that her surgery goes well.
Great news! Thank you for the update. Praying and thinking of you, your mom and Wayne tomorrow and the upcoming weekend.
While I did not have a heart attack. on my regular scheduled annual heart test including imaging and tread mill test and nuke image they found a blockage. Instead of going home I was whisked off to the OR for a "stint". Surgery at 2pm woke up for dinner at 6 and released the next morning at 11am.
The best part was I could not believe how quickly I recovered and how much better I felt. Interesting enough I had no idea how bad I had gotten over time. My strength and ability to walk around had greatly been diminished over time. The sad part was I did not recognize it.
I'm sure in a few days Wayne will be able to see positive improvements. There is little or no pain with a stint, just a small cut on the inner thigh.
Because my doc is on the cutting edge of nuke imaging and preventative medicine I did not have the problem , he found it before the pain and heart attack.
I recommend to all us "mature" guys and gals to find a heart specialist that is into preventative measures. This is what saved me from serious issues. I had no pain no problems and no simptons but a severely blocked artery.
Thank-you Linda for keeping us informed. Get well Wayne.
Welcome home Wayne! Nothing quite like the feeling of finally going home after any hospital experience, right? My mother always said that,...."home is where you act the worst and are treated the best!" Now for a speedy recovery,.....harold
Best of all--no more hospital food & hospital gowns with that draft in the backside. . .
Yes, prayers will continue for both of you!
Linda & David D.
PS--and no nurse or CNA (like my Linda) waking you up to give you your sleeping pill!
Welcome home Wayne. Looking forward to you returning to your "2nd home"
Pleased to hear Wayne has made progress and is home! (Listen to what the Doc told you, and follow the regimen for proper exercise...) My cardiologist identified my own probable 'widow maker' back on 2014 election day. (I complained for not being allowed to go and 'vote'.) He did the balloon/stent procedure through my wrist area, telling me "They'd resort to the groin only if they can't locate a usable artery." Technology continues!
Linda...hope and praying your mom's surgery yesterday went well.
