[Serious] I could use some prayers and good wishes

I am scheduled to have a procedure done that involves a catheter and the placement of a stent to relieve a cardiac blockage at 2:00 PM this afternoon. Some prayers and good wishes from Team Helix would be appreciated.

Prayer lifted from my house for our beloved groundchuck.

Edit to say: For anyone, like me, who doesn't know anything about this procedure, I found a very good Heart Catheterization Procedure video on the WebMD site. I am so thankful the necessary medical knowledge and skill is there when our groundchuck needs it.

After witnessing quite a few of those procedures, I can tell you that it is very straightforward, and I believe you will be so much the better when they are done!

Well, I am back home and no worse off than I was before the procedure. However, the blockage could not be treated with a stent and a bypass appears to be in my future.

Thank you all for the prayers and good wishes. You can be sure that I will be coming back for more when I have the bypass scheduled.

I had a stent put in three years ago and was surprised how quickly the procedure went. Too bad that you were not a candidate for the procedure. As for the bypass, a friend had a quadruple bypass a couple of years ago. The doc told him to take three months off work, he was back at work after seven weeks, and he's as irascible and ornery as ever. You are and certainly will be in our thoughts.

January 28, 1986, the day of the Challenger disaster, my dad went in for a triple bypass - ending up being a quadruple. He had much heart damage prior that reduced him to a shell of his former self, but after surgery in no time he was his old productive self, and remained so for ten years.

If the procedure is before heart damage (like my father-in-law) the future is much better and the techniques are better now too.

More prayers!

I am sorry that they could not go with the stent, however, bypass surgery has really become better and better in recent years.

I hope that whatever you need to feel better gets scheduled soon!

Sorry to hear you have to do the bypass, but they do them everyday, so you should be fine. Our prayers are with you.
