What started out as a very nice day, time with a friend, finding a stamp I needed for a series of cards I’m working on. Asked I would have said, life is good.
A short time later, we got a phone call, one that changed the “colour” of the day. A clerk from the hospital, left a message that due to what they saw as a heart problem, the scheduled surgery (coming Tuesday) was cancelled, lots to discuss, please call>?? You can understand, this was a rather startling and disturbing message.
We called back, only to discover, that the young lady, had not really gotten her information all updated and ready to dispense prior to calling. For months now we have been going for treatments, followed and taken every required tests asked for. Now 5 days away from the 1st surgery, they had found a heart problem. Never had we even had an inkling of a heart problem, not even a murmur of one. Needless to say, it was not a very quiet inducing conversation.
What we discovered was that, at the time my husband was there for the tests, they should have asked for a cardiologist right then and there to have a look. With a week-end looming, we are on hold. That a heart problem would surface over night, is rather puzzling. Anyway, we wait.
My head tells me that if his entire life, he has not had one symptom, or whisper of a heart problem…then… I have to trust that precaution is important. this is a very serious, major operation, the positive, is that they are making every effort to cover all bases.
Please join me in prayer and positive thoughts. His main surgery date of Dec. 13th. is still in place. There is an urgent request that he been seen as soon as possible. We wait. We pray. PL Precept #11 Always be with God.
