Good Morning All,
Anna had her cardiac catherization yesterday and all went well. The doctor did not have to put in any stents and she is clean as a whistle. It turns out that the artery in question (I can't remember which one it is, but it is on the left side) has a place that is narrow. It is due to the way God made her. It really isn't a "defect" but as the doctor said, just the way she is.
The doc said that he will just have to watch her so that that spot doesn't collect plaque etc by keeping her bad cholesterol down and her good cholesterol up and keeping her blood pressure normal.
There isn't anything else wrong with her heart. YEA!
So that was great news. She had to stay at the hospital for about 3 hours after the quick (30 minute cath) and we were headed home by 2pm.
Oh, and I have to tell you that I had to feed her lunch because she couldn't sit up at all for a few hours. The nurse tilted her bed so she wouldn't choke but she had to keep her head flat on the pillow.
She ordered a Lobster salad. I joked with her that she was just like Aunt Jay ordering Lobster! and of course I was well trained at feeding someone who can't feed themselves in bed (that would be Mom and Dad). Now Dad would close his eyes and open his mouth like a little baby bird waiting for Momma bird to feed her. We joked about this while I was feeding her.
She is doing well. Thanks again for all the prayers and we can stop worrying about her.
I am still working on getting the funeral pictures posted for you to see. I will let you know when they are up.
Love and hugs to all,
