Heart Stints

On Sunday, October 24, 2004 about 4:00 pm I began to feel some pain in my back and could not detect if it was from sitting toooooo long in front of my computer. Finally, about 9:30 pm I knew it was not back pain so I called 911.

In January 1999 I had open heart surgery. So any call to 911 is an instant trip to ER. After arriving at the ER they took blood and history of the day. About an hour later one of the heart doctors from the “heart group” that treats me showed up and told me that I was in the process of having a heart attack and that he was going to do a cauterization procedure to see what was going on.

While looking inside my heart they found two “clogged” arteries in the “by pass” arteries and put a stint in one and will put a stint in the other on November 14, 2004.

I am back home on a one week rest routine before returning to a regular routine.

BTW: Put me on your prayer list. I would appreciate it.
