I'm keeping your father and your family in my thoughts and prayers.


Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to.
The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.

And hours later, Dad has a heart attack. Coincidence.

Coincidence? Or psychic episode? My mom was a little bit prone to episodes of precognition like this. My mom was in church and a feeling of overwhelming doom came over her - my father died unexpectedly of a heart attack later that night (he'd had no symptoms and was only 51). She had a few other episodes like that. As a scientist, I can't explain it, but such things do seem to exist at times.

Here's hoping for a successful stent for your father. (((((Hug)))))

Hello Friends

Own, yes like everything, socialized medicine has its positives and negatives. Dad’s origin story of his paralysis is from the “hallway” medicine at that time. An inflection cut off his blood supply to C5/6 of his spine. And the nerves died.

A simple dose of penicillin, well actually cloxacillin, is all he needed. But, he was sent home with Valium for “reasons”. No tests. Just hand out some drugs and push them out the door. A day later, he was paralyzed. He laid on a stretcher in the actual hallway for another day, until finally getting a bed, and an appointment to get an MRI to see what was going on inside. But, the machine broke and by the time they got it up and running, the MRI was scheduled for research.

I was standing right beside the doctor as he was yelling into the phone at someone trying to explain that a man is paralyzed and to push back looking at plant cells so he could have his missed appointment. Nope. Didn’t happen. So another day passed. Then the discovery and the simple solution. Which still had to be administered even though damage done.

Another interesting thing about this healthcare is one cannot sue. Not that I wanted to, but I was told “that’s why it’s called practicing medicine”. Of course, the volume of legal paperwork one signs pretty much ensures no recourse as well. smile

Overall, I suppose the benefits outweighs the problems.

I do have very few regrets and told those I love my true feelings. I’ve said many things, held my tongue when I needed to, apologized when I didn’t and should’ve (lol), and am right with the people I need to be right with.


job, thank you. Always nice to see you pop in, and know you follow along.


kml, this is not my first brush with precognition. I mentioned one other time, in a prior post. The truth is, I seem to have a guardian angel or some bit of a link to future events. My entire life I’ve mostly sidestepped certain bad things. It’s weird, a feeling overcomes me and I can alter my course. And for the most part, I do. Not really intentionally, more of that belief driven idea. I suppose faith is a pretty good word to use here. smile

It’s never help me predict the winning lottery numbers. Lol. However, I’ve avoid falling trees, running head long into a hidden car crash around a blind corner, falling, personal injury (oh my, that one is well used. My poor angel), and such. Random luckiness doesn’t seem to quite explain it all.


Andrew, thank you my friend.


Dad saw the cardiologist. There are arterial blockages. He recommended bypass surgery. The surgeon, for a variety of reasons recommends against surgery and going with stents. I’m sure Dad’s lack of mobility would impede recovery after such an evasive surgery. Stents will be far less stressful upon him.

The stents are suppose to proceed later the afternoon. I passed this along to all the kids and let them know Grandpa has his cell phone and charger and to feel free to send Grandpa best wishes. Actions help. (Thanks Own.) The kids will feel better, and Dad will enjoy the messages, either before or during recovery. (Gently leading, it’s what parents do.)


I previously posted to IronWill, a few posts prior on this thread, regarding family. You fine folks are family. I’m blessed and honoured to have you in my life.

Love

D

Good Morning

neffer, bttrfly - thank you. I am grateful to have such support and care.


Dad called me last night, just before bed. An actual call! Lol. A rarity these modern days.

He regained consciousness and is recovering. One artery was completely blocked and an other was 60% blocked. He had one stent inserted; probably the 60% blockage. Entry point was through his wrist. A few days with a high compression bandage, some observation, and he should be back home.

The completely blocked artery; the blood is finding it’s way around through different veins and such Dad was told by the doctor, but may not have gotten the entire details correct. Lots to assimilate, and in such a mental/emotional state. Point is, repair of that would have required open heart surgery. That level of tinkering would have a pretty big hole in his chest. Much higher risks, and recovery time, and apparently not needed.

Dad got the stereotypical pamphlet - Living with Heart Disease. Today, he sees a couple of therapists for tips/directions going forward.

He reported being pain free, and sounded well. I’m sure a weight is lifted from him, as for us.

I’m off to work.

Have a wonderful day.

D

Good news indeed. I've had angiograms twice - essentially the same procedure but without the stent insertion. The most recent one was also through my wrist. Healing was pretty quick on me and I only had to have the pressure on for about a day I think. After that, just general no over-use of that arm.

I expect that your Dad will find himself with a lot more energy fairly quickly - it's one of those procedures that has immediate results.

Good news indeed - and now the doctors and your family know exactly what is going on.

Doctors figures one or two more stents are required.
