HOSPITAL BLUES

Well, I get let loose from the hospital for about a week and a half, and now my wife is in the hospital. I landed up bringing her in about 1:30 this afternoon as her heart was beating hard and fast - too fast, that is. It turns out she's actually got good sized blood clots in her lungs - talk about some scary stuff. She's at least one night, possibly two, in ICU. There's a filter inserted inside of her that will try to eat up and dissolve any blood clots that come that way.

Any prayers will be most appreciated. 43 is too young to be a widower!
Thanks much.
Peace,
BMP

Yikes, Brian! That is, indeed, very scary. Prayers definitely sent up your way; I hope she feels better soon.

She's on our list.

Did the doc suggest more liquor? Thins the blood, you know...

UPDATE: So far, she's doing a bit better. Her pains have gone down from a 10 of 10 to a 6 of 10. Her EKG indicates that the heart is actually doing fine, so that's a good thing! At least one more night in ICU.

Thanks much for all your prayers, all. They mean a lot.
Peace,
