Dying Man’s Daily Journal – I’m home

I do thank all for all the support and prayers. I am home a little bruised and battered but am doing well. Everything went pretty much as expected. An angioplasty was preformed with a stent implanted clearing one blockage. Also as expected the doctor was unable to do anything with the other blockage, the artery is 100% blocked. He though did say he believes he can clear it in a longer more complicated procedure. Now that is good news for sure. I will be advised of dates in the near future by expect it mid to late June.
I had always been of the thought that a total blockage resulted in an immediate heart attack, not necessarily so. Each of the larger arteries have a lot of much smaller arteries running off of them. There are times when these smaller arteries wander off and ultimately rejoin the main artery at a point down the line. This is my case those tiny even minuscule arteries are what are keeping me going as they on their own actually by pass the blockage. To me this is amazing. While not a permanent solution, will I hope continue to do the job until the proper measures can be taken

    Simply doing a happy dance that you are home and that the future looks brighter. Your strength and courage are inspirational as I face my own need for various invasive procedures which I am simply too scared to have done. Love and hugs xx

    It is amazing how hard our bodies try to keep us going! 100% blockage of an artery sure explains why it is so hard for you to capture your energy. Glad things went well. Hope you’ll soon notice a bit of improvement.

    I’ll bet each of those tiny minuscule arteries traveling around the 100% blocked artery were made by the prayers and support of all your friends! I’m not kidding either. Glad to hear all went well. I prayed Psalm 23 for you that morning.
    Hi Lydia. I do thank you, my dear blogging friends and all that have prayed for me and mine. I do believe in the power of prayer and that it has brought blessings into my life. I would not be here were it not for those minuscule little arteries and they are all that is keeping me alive until the more elaborate process can be done. I am not kidding when I say I have no doubt in my mind that the Heavenly Father takes an active part in my life for which I am so very grateful

I need to come back to have a good read through .. and your notes on symptoms etc … That does sound hopeful .. the body is an amazing instrument and manages to keep us going through the most unimagineable clogs in life … long may those tiny streams keep you going for many a time yet ..
