All's Well That Ends Well

I've been away from my blog for a few days due to an unexpected hospital stay for my Spouse. Long story short, I took him to the ER Friday evening as he was having some chest "discomfort." They suspected a blockage so they decided to keep him for the weekend.

Yesterday, he had an angiogram and they actually identified three blockages. They installed three stents and now he's as good as (or even BETTER than!) new! The procedure was painless and he will be home today.

We feel very fortunate that this situation was caught before anything major occurred. We've definitely had a big wake-up call!

What a scare! My dad recently had a stent put in for a blockage in his abdomen. It's definitely a wake-up call. I'm glad your husband is doing OK!

It is good he listened to his body. Too many people think it will just go away. Your prompt action may have saved his life!
