Not a lot of good news around here for us...
Two weeks ago, Sandy couldn't stay on the treadmill stress test but a few minutes. A heart cath last week is indicating that two of her three bypasses have "failed". On top of that, there is an aneurysm in a bad spot around the blockages that will not allow for a stint to be used.
We've got another visit to the cardio tomorrow.
As many of you know, she's been feeling bad for months - even a year. Now we seem to know why. Maybe we can get better news on Wednesday.
For now, we are just trying to not make it worse using meds and extreme diet. Even the very lightest of activity gets her winded and produces chest "pressure". Although, she does seem to be recovering slightly better from exertion over the last couple of days. We'll just have to see how it goes.
So, that's most of what has kept me from being very communicative lately. A heads up for my "minions" in case I need some significant assistance this weekend with the Fly Fishing Festival.
