Heart Cath in the morning
Fellow DC members I would appreciate your prayers. God is my Father and Jesus is my Lord, so I know I'm in good hands, but as He has commanded us to pray for one another, I ask you to honor Him by praying for me.
My wife brought me to the hospital ER yesterday morning with chest pains. They can't confirm or deny that I had a heart attack, but there is concern because my enzymes and other blood chemicals were elevated. Plans are to do a heart cath Monday morning and if there is blockage then they will do either a stint or balloon. Hope to be home on Tuesday. I'll post a follow up ASAP.

Best of luck. Prayers going up.

Sorry about your difficulty, it'll go well

relax in bed until it is o.k. for you to get up afterward; maybe 2 hours, maybe overnight. Honestly, I'd rather do another cath lab than get my teeth worked on.
If you are inquisitive look around the room a little and marvel at all that technology concentrated on getting you well. You might even be able to watch where the cath goes on a screen and watch where the dye goes, doesn't go. It is a bit surreal, but you can sort of turn it into a fun experience with the right attitude.
Aren't we all lucky we live in today's world, and not the world of even the recent past.

Best wishes my friend. I wish we weren't so far away. I'd come distract you with some gun talk.

I guess this means you can't carry tomorrow. Imagine the look on the nurses face when they lift you gown and find a holster.
My friends that have had it done say it is a piece of cake.
But good luck anyway.

God bless. I pray all goes well, and they know what to do to help you be healthy again.

Added to prayer list
I've never had the experience of heart cath but have sat in the waiting room. My wife has eleven stints. I hope they caught it in time for you and that there's no heart damage. I will be lifting you and your wife in prayer. May God comfort you two during this time.

Good luck and God speed. Prayers are going out for you and yours. It must be just as rough on your wife as it is you, but you both will come through this fine and strong.

I just had 2 stents put in six months ago and it is a very easy procedure. There is no pain or discomfort at all. I spent 36 hours in the hospital. The worst part is waiting to get released so you can go home.I hope every thing goes smooth for you and your home soon. The heart cath is simple and easy.

I know you're concerned. I would be, too. But (easy for me to say since I'm on this side of it) it's amazing what the medical specialists can do nowadays and how the risks have been minimalized.
We expect you back here feeling even better than before!
