Heartfelt thanks to anyone out there who prayed for my Dad.
I am happy to report he is feeling better, and his heart catheterization yesterday showed NO BLOCKAGES. (This is nothing short of a miracle, the cardiologists seemed pretty sure there'd be something there.)
Things have turned the corner fairly quickly. He was even released from the hospital today.
But he's not home free.
Lots of medications, follow up with his five doctors, and lifestyle changes await him.
He was told to follow the South Beach (low glycemic index) diet. No more smoking, of course. Get all kinds of tests done (some very frequently)
He was back to being his old self yesterday - lobbying to get released, using his charm on anyone who would listen.
So he dodged yet another bullet. But the bullets are getting closer and closer to him. Hopefully he'll follow the rules this time. But he likes to follow his own rules.
Many thanks to the readers who reached out to me with their kind words - it has meant more to me than you know.
