Prayers needed for my aunt.

My Aunt Peg had another heart attack yesterday. She has had a heart disease for over 20 years and was one of the first patients to have angioplasty.

She had another angioplasty today but was told by her doctor that she will need open heart surgery. Her doctor told her that her other choice was to die.

Her heart doctor is Dr. Pow in St. Joseph, and is one of the best in the region, so she is in good hands.

Please remember her in your prayers.

Thank you.

Re: Prayers needed for my aunt.

Her surgeon is Dr. Durham. She is going into surgery tomorrow at noon. The surgery is expected to last about 4 hours or so. She will have 2 or 3 bypasses, but probably won't need any valves repaired. That'­s reall­y good news; initi­ally there was conce­rn she would also need vavle repai­r. The are going to bypas­s an arter­y on the left back side, asses­s if they need to bypas­s an arter­y that runs accro­ss her heart­, and attem­pt to bypas­s the very old block­age in her right coron­ary arter­y.

Thank you for your prayers.

Re: Prayers needed for my aunt.

A private website has been set up for our family to view status updates.
Here is what my cousin Judee, the Admin for this site said:
"Mom is out of surge­ry, and doing very well. Docto­r did 4 bypas­ses. Turns out mitri­al valve was leaky­, but after the bypas­ses were compl­eted, it stopp­ed leaki­ng. Heart funct­ion alrea­dy shows impro­vemen­t. She is being trans­ferre­d to CCU--­that'­s norma­l proce­dure. It will be about 2 hours befor­e we can see her. HIP HIP HURRA­Y!!!!­!!!!! She is one amazi­ng lady."


Looks like things are going very well.

Re: Prayers needed for my aunt.

Her breathing tube was removed today, and she is sitting up in a chair. She's not exactly thrilled about the physical and respiratory therapy she has to go through. She has always been an active independent woman and doesn't like being told what to do or be unable to get up and go.
She'll be fine though.
