. . . from the bottom of his heart . . .

. . . have you ever seen one of these? . . .
{for the record, these are not my fingers ~ mine look much worse}
. . . this, my friends, is a stent . . .
. . . it is used to help widen blockage in arteries . . .
. . . like the arteries that were
ninety-five per cent blocked
in the bottom portion
of my poor husband's heart . . .
. . . so, he is now the proud owner
of three shiny new stents . . .
. . . great ~ so, now he has problems
with the bottom of his heart
and the heart of his bottom . . .
. . . he is Job . . .

Hi, it's Beth (the one you taught how to comment). My Mom, and both uncles have stents, their quality of life is so much better than before. It's one of those things you don't realize until you find out things aren't right. I don't know what is wrong with your husbands back but this might help it a little, it is amazing how much help having your blood circulating correctly helps. I'll keep you in my prayers. Have a wonderful day!

I just read the story about Job with the girls a few nights ago. I got tears in my eyes because I thought about Dad the whole time. I hope he's home safe & sound.

Amber told me about his procedure. I could tell she was worried and who wouldn't be. I am so sorry! However how fabulous we can do relatively simple procedures like stents to prevent heart attacks or don't have to have open heart surgery! I know things are not simple when they are happening to you, but he should be good as new! I will keep you and your family in our prayers! I hope to see you Wednesday!~Adrianne
