He had it on Thursday, but didn't go to the hospital until Friday, when the chest pain got severe. He didn't even realize he'd had one. His doctor said it was a major one, and it could've killed him. They did an emergency cath, and found out he had an artery that was 100% blocked, and another that was 70% blocked. They inserted 3 stints, and he could be going home Tuesday. My dad is an active sort of person, but he will have to rest for a good awhile. He's already talking about going golfing, but that's out for a while while he recovers. He's 82 years old, and he needs to lose a bit of weight by altering his diet. Anyway, he scared me this time, but after he rests up for several days, he should be able to do limited activity. There WAS some damage to his heart, but he's a tough man, so I think he'll pull through OK. Wish my dad the best, my friends. I would appreciate your thoughts & prayers for him.

Thanks,
Glenn

I am so glad his delay didn't prove fatal! He is a very lucky man.

And you have been given an extra chance to spend time with him

Very happy for you!

Yikes! Best wishes KG. Have heard miraculous things about plant based diets regarding preventing and even reversing coronary artery disease. You might want to check this out.

Sorry to hear about your dad, mate. Hope he recovers soon. Like Rhonda said, this is a wake up call to you both to treasure your remaining time together while it lasts...

Hi Glenn

Glad that you used the forum to tell us about your situation. Always sad when hear news of illness or other members passing away, but the matrix forum is always a good place to share the information. We do notice when certain frequent posters go AWOL for a while.

Hope your dad gets well soon. And he can recover enough to take up his hobbies and enjoy family life.

Mat

Sorry to hear about that. My Dad had one when he was 59 not had one since though and he is 72.They say if you can reach 60 without having one you should be alight..think it's 45 to 60 the danger age for men.
