I need a few prayers!!

Hi Friends....I have a huge favor to ask of all of you. I need some prayers.Yesterday my husband woke up with terrible "indigestion".....he took pepcid, and went back to bed. He went to work, had lunch, and then we worked out with our Trainer. When he got home from work the pain got worse, and he took more antacids. When he starting complaining that his arms and neck were sore, my son Brad demanded that he call the Dr. He didn't want to, but we made him. We ended up going straight from the Dr.s office to the ER. It turns out his indigestion was actually a heart attack. He is now in the Coronary Care Unit, awaiting an angioplasty. As soon as he has that we will know the extent of the damage, and the course of action that needs to be taken. (my sons brought the computer to the hospital, they knew that looking at all the wonderful blogs you all have would take my mind off of things.)....So, I am sneaking a minute away from Nick to ask for your prayers. I love you all, and appreciate any kind thoughts you send our way.

I'm so happy you guys made him go. So many people have heart
attacks and don't know about it until it's to late.

You and your family will remain in my prayers.

Hugs,
Joanne

Valarie, the hospital is the best place for him. I am sure everything will be fine. the same thing happened to my hubby twice, first he had quad by pass then four years later they discovered somemore blockage and did an angio. he is fine, a little overweight but ok otherwise. Mens symptoms often mimic indigestion, women too. my prayers are with your family. hugs JoAnn S
