The husband had additional stents & angioplasties done Tuesday.  According to the cardiologist, his heart is now in great shape.

They took him off (after I made him report his pre- & post-pill BPs) the blood pressure medication.

He’s still taking a metric shit ton of blood thinners and will for a few months…and an aspirin.

They added simvastatin to that, since his cholesterol was 160.

And since they gave him 600 mg of Plavix while LAYING ON the cath table that he couldn’t effectively swallow and therefore, sorta singed his esophagus, he’s taking Pepcid now, too.

He’s doing okay and the trips to & from the hospital were uneventful.

Got home yesterday and it was close to 100* in the house.  The a/c had quit.  Turned out to be a simple thing, caused by our lack of maintenance- the coil was stopped up.  Cleaned it out and it’s running like a champ today.

Coulda been worse….a LOT worse.

So, he’s on the mend, I’m making headway in a few other ventures and things are looking up.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE PRAYERS, THOUGHTS & KIND WORDS!!!  They were all appreciated far more than you can imagine!!

    Hey Snigs, you’re our favorite. Glad to hear that God answers prayer …….. sometimes I wonder what the limits to that statement are … ….. I guess I should keep my own nose in my own business and just let God handle his own business. But I can and have prayed.

    Good news, gal.
