Big day tomorrow for our family
« on: July 24, 2017, 05:50:00 PM »
My Father is having quadruple bypass surgery in the morning OSF in Peoria and the surgeon is also going to clear out his right carotid artery that is also 70% blocked...so it would be much appreciated if you could please shake your voodoo sticks, say a prayer, think positive thoughts for him or whatever it is that you do.  He is a strong man who for a 77 year old man is in relatively good health other than this situation.

BTW, he had absolutely no symptoms and only found out because he had a physical with an EKG and it came back irregular. He was sent to a cardiologist and he had and echo cardiogram and stress test that showed one blockage.  A guy went into do an angioplasty about a month ago and found three other blockages and was unable to do anything with any of them. 

So a PSA here: The cardiologist told him that roughly a third of people have no symptoms, another third have chest pain and or fatigue/trouble breathing, AND the other 3rd DIE because they have a heart attack.

Thanks guys. Procedure went well and they ended up doing a quintuple bypass.

Sorry to hear about your friend Musson.i wish him well as I can only imagine how tough that recovery is and the obvious risk.
