Scary Experience

I have’nt blogged or read blogs in a little while, as we had a scary experience in our house last week. My husband had a heart attack on Wednesday, he was in the cardiac intensive care unit for a couple of days. (This is the same unit I work in). It happened while he was at work, so they got him to the hospital very quickly. He was in the ER for 6 hours before they were able to get a hold of me (my cell phone had died). He is home now, doing great, and it seems he has no damage to his heart muscle. They put 2 stents in his right coronary artery, it was a 100% closed. It was a scary and emotional time for me, I work in the unit so I know the worst that can happen, and then trying to be strong for the kids so that they would’nt be scared. So keep us in your thoughts.

    So glad to hear things turned out okay. I’ve been thinking of Clay since I heard about it, but didn’t want to bug you. I’m glad it was the right side. Hang in there!
