is normally a good, kind, and big heart…
But a few days ago, it gave him chest pain, and breathlesness. So my Mom rushed him up to the ER, and it was discovered that he had a near heart attack. His blood pressure was pretty high, and he had an irregular heartbeat. His stress test showed signs of blocked arteries.
He was transferred to Yale, which makes visiting him much easier.
Today he undergoes his angioplasty to see just what is going on.
If he has a simple blockage, he will receive a stent or two. If he has a full blockage, or multiple areas of blockage, then he will be a candidate for bypass surgery.
So we'll just see how it goes.
The kids have been very good, and love to go see him.
They have played pit with him,
and helped him pick out his meals.
Evren even spent his own money buying Grandpa a heart friendly granola bar!
He is in a good place.
And was lucky enough to receive a warning, and not a full blown attack!
As we were leaving, we played by the fountain,
Yale has a very pretty lobby, it makes me want to have a latte and read a magazine.
We decided to take Grandma out for a nice meal, get her a drink, help her relax.
She will be staying with us until my Dad gets released, so the kids have been very happy to have her on a big sleepover!
You just never know what life will throw at you, and the one thing I have learned is that there is nothing more precious and basic than having your health.
