View Full Version : prayers, good thoughts, etc

05-13-2010, 10:54 AM
Just wanted to request some good thoughts, prayers, whatever your personal beliefs are, etc for my mom, who is having a quadruple bypass tomorrow morning. Pretty shocking, as she was visiting this past weekend and looked and felt good and has had zero symptoms, but she has one blockage of 93%! She is 59, and my grandfather (her dad) had a quadruple bypass at 53, so guess who has an appointment with the doc on Monday? Yeah. Thanks all...

many thanks to all for everything. Surgery went well, triple bypass and for some reason decided the others could not be bypassed so spent a lot of time cleaning them out. They had her sitting up the next day and the last tubes came out today. Still not exactly out of the woods but on her way back. Thanks again all.

That is great news. My ex-mother in law went through the same proceedure 20 years ago and from what I hear she is still doing good.

UPDATE: well....hoeps he bought the extended warranty, because the bypasses failed. Her latest test showed her heart was down to 40% capacity, so last week they went it and put 5 stents in and used a couple of balloons. That went well until friday when she had arm pain, and went to the ER. They went in last night with 5 more stents. They think she had a heart attack either on the table during the bypass, or shortly thereafter. Prognosis is positive, but not 100% sure they are telling me everything... She should go home tomorrow, I appreciate all the thoughts and emails, and very bummed I could not make the 40's only run, but no way I wanted to be out of cell phone range. Thanks again all.
