GOOD NEWS! Hubby was released at 11 am today and now home and doing well. The doctor said that he was pleased with the way things were going. The ultrasound showed a little damage to the lower part of his heart but nothing serious and called it a mild to medium attack, but said that with proper diet and exercise and no smoking he should do fine. He is also on a blood thinner for at least a year, cholesterol, a baby aspirin and blood pressure medicine and another drug for the heart. Quitting smoking will be the hardest thing for him to do. My hubby has been a heavy smoker for a long time. I'll not talk about the discussions we've had about it prior to this. :D That and his not going to the doctor for regular checkups because he thought he was healthy. The doctor also said that hubby has severe sleep apnea which can be very hard on the heart and needs to be dealt with, too.
My son and daughter are here and we are all happy to have the "big guy" back home. He will be off work for 2 weeks and then on light duty at work 2 weeks before resuming his normal working routine.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and well wishes. Thanks for the sweet comments and emails. You all are just the best and I love each one of you!
