my dad had the heart catheter procedure done yesterday to check out what is going on in is arteries. the news was not great. there are just 3 arteries going into your heart. the one at the bottom of his heart was 100% blocked and there was scarring (deadened heart tissue). they are unable to do anything about that artery b/c of the scarring. the aorta (the biggest and main artery) was 60% blocked. they didn't do anything with this artery either because i guess it has to be 70% or more blocked before they will put a stent in. the plan is for him to see the cardiologist twice a year and keep a close eye on the aorta. he will also have a stress test done in july. and he has to implement a new diet. he's still at a very high risk for another heart attack. it stinks to be so far away right now. i want to be there to help my dad out with whatever he needs. thanks for your continued prayers!
