He is having an angiogram tomorrow to determine what exactly is going on with his heart. He has already had bypass surgery years ago. He had chest pains today and I called 911 and an ambulance took him to the ER, he did have a heart attack and has been admitted to the hospital. I'm keeping myself optimistic because he did pass his last stress test with no problems but it was just over a year ago.

 

He is at a Catholic hospital and received the sacrament of the sick today in the ER.

Prayers for your husband, yourself, and his doctors that they may heal his heart and have him back home very soon.

Thanks

 

They postponed his angiogram until Monday. But at least he isn't having chest pains anymore.

I'll keep your husband and your family in my prayers.  

 

May God guide all of the doctors and nurses taking care of him as well.

(from my "Communion of the Sick" hospital ministry booklet)

 

Lord God,

Moved by Your Holy Spirit we ask you to pour out upon Your people, and especially upon Arduinna's husband, the gifts You know are most important right now. Through Jesus Christ our Lord

Amen


I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

Thanks everyone. 

 

He has his test and he has a blockage. They are just going to monitor it and treat it with medication at this time. He can come home on Wednesday. I'm so exhausted I not sure what else to say right now. I appreciate everyones prayers. He is driving me crazy complaining about the low salt low fat hospital diet.
