Today is the day
We go in soon, for my husbands "procedure". He is more nervous about it than I am- because it is happening to him. Plus they make an incision. They say, he has to be off work for at least 48 hours after. No bending and lifting. OUCH if he does.
I don't know how long it will take to get the results. I would imagine, it shouldn't take that long. His options will be:
3. Bypass surgery
We've both been feeling a little bummy since we got the word - we both just never thought he would start having these heart issues until maybe 65 - He's 60. It just means like I said - we are being ushered into a new season. The GETTING OLD season.
During the A-Z challenge, I worked heavily on my genealogy and the blog I created to get it all written down. It is a passionate hobby of mine. While I am doing it, I am conscious of the fact, one day, I will be searched for - and as I discovered old photos, of my grandparents, their parents and kids and cousins - on Ancestry - I saw how we all are young and beautiful ONCE and then we get old and ugly. Well - it's the truth!
2016 was such a good year for us - and now this. A good friend of ours, was traveling and had bad angina pains and had to go into the hospital for the same procedure. He has to have several bypasses when he gets back to California. (They were in Missouri) Misery loves company.
Which brings me to the fact that my dad died of heart disease and my 25-year-old son, died of an undiagnosed heart condition. I guess I shouldn't wait around, for my doctor to "suggest" I get a heart check-up. I have to be my own advocate. I will look into that, after all of this with my husband.
Off, we go...into our new reality.
