This is terrible! I hope that Monica is resting well. My friend just came home from the hospital suffering the same thing (had double pneumonia too!). Prayers for her and family. Disturbing that she's a few years older than me. Scary. Please keep the updates coming.

That is the most awful news. Sending lots of prayers and positive thoughts to her family. I am glad to hear she is a little better.

Update from Jason:

Ok, I am sorry that updates are slow, but obviously a lot going on. Here is what happened.

Monica did have a heart attack. One of her coronary arteries was 100% blocked. They did put in a stent last night and the artery is fully open and has 100% blood flow. She did good throughout the night and today. Her blood pressure is down and her heart beat definately looks much better.
NOW... Next steps. I talked to the doctor today and he said that she also has a 90 to 95% blockage in the artery at the back of her heart, and about a 60% blockage in the artery on the left side. We will have to go back in about 2 or 3 weeks and they are going to put another stent in the artery at the back. He is going to evaluate the other artery and determine if he should put another stent in the that one too.

The doctor is very optomistic, and when I asked about limitations etc, he felt confident that once these proceedures were complete that she would be able to return to her normal activities and not notice any limitations. Granted, this is best guess at this point, but nearly every single nurse on the ICU floor told me how lucky we were that our Dr was on call as he is the best cardio surgeon there.

REASON: we just dont know. She is only 43, and her weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, etc were all within "normal" ranges. Meaning nothing was grossly out of whack that would have caused this amount of blockage at her age. They are still doing TONS of tests, and she will be going through stress tests etc to determine why this was happening and what we need to do going forward.

We are scheduled to be released tomorrow, but I have no idea when. She is doing well and the nurses are all very satisfied with her condition. We left her watching American Idol and she was in good spirits. She just sent me a text saying she had her catheter removed and got to walk around a little and that it felt nice to move although she is very sore.

She does have her phone, but please dont text her right now. I want her to relax and get some rest for tomorrow.

Hey everyone. Smile

I got home a few hours ago, took a much needed shower and had a nap. I feel pretty good but really sore. My leg (groin) where they go in to do the stent is totally black and seriousy ugly. So are my arms. I had about 8 people trying to find a good vein so I have about 15 holes in me that are also bruised. My veins suck and kept collapsing on them. But overall, I'm in decent shape. Very emotional today though. Much more so than I have been. I think it's really just now hitting me. And I'm sure that's not the end of it. It all just seems so surreal.

I can't imagine Monica and I think a delayed reaction is probably pretty normal. Sometimes I think you just get in "get thru" this mode and it all hits you later!

I am so glad you are home. I know I was always so much happier in my own environment! Take it easy!
