That must have been so scary for you.  I’m glad he’s on the mend and hope everything is smooth sailing from here on out, or at least less bumpy.  You’ve been through a lot, you deserve some peaceful days.

Hugs to you and your family bee!  Does the hospital where your husband had his procedure offer Cardiac Rehab? This program helps to reintroduce exercise to people who have suffered cardiac events/had cardiac surgery.  They provide tons of education and materials for living with Coronary Artery Disease and healthy lifestyle tips.

That must have been a shock. I have a couple of friends to whom this has happened. Their husbands are doing very well now. Wishing both him and your daughter a full and speedy recovery.

The positive side is that it was small and it was promptly dealt with and you know where to go from here re future care. Thank goodness.

All the best now for him in the future and I hope that your daughter’s surgery is smooth and she recovers quickly.

Oh, Bee, honey, how awful for you.  I am so sorry you had to go through this.  It must have been terrifying for you and your dear husband.

It is truly remarkable what can be done for cardiac problems today compared to the recent past. At my advanced age, I can remember disastrous outcomes that are now easily prevented. And in the olden day’s, patients faced long, long recovery times. I am grateful that we live in this era.

As for heart murmurs; I have one.  Even as an old bat going under for a few cosmetic surgeries (the actual number is not important) there were absolutely no issues. The surgeons routinely ordered a blood test and EKG prior; my EKG was always perfect. Doctors always find it and shrug it off.

Not that I am trying to minimize your daughter’s condition.  We’re all different.

What are you doing for self care, dear Bee?  I know you are the best at Bee Bad Assery, but, self care still matters.

Sansa85 :  how scary and upsetting. Especially with so much going on, recently. I hope you all are okay and all procedures and recuperations happen smoothly and with ease.

The doctors are always able to hear my murmur via stethoscope. 

I am so happy to hear you are getting good support.  You deserve it.  This is a very good time to lean on the people who love you.

Hugs, Bee! Sorry you are going through all this.

Your husband doesn’t work in Kennesaw, does he? A 40-something colleague of my husband’s just had a heart attack at work on Thursday – so scary!

Also, is your husband signed up for cardiac rehabilitation? Completing a 6-month cardiac rehab program reduces risk of future heart attacks and stroke, but only a fraction of people who are eligible participate.
