Thank you so much for all the kind comments on my other post, and for the prayers.
Carl is doing well. He is home, and now taking insulin shots, and taking 6 different pills for his heart. He has been given a second chance, and realizes that God is looking out for him! He has decided to listen to his body and do what the doctor says.
The doc told him that if this hadn't happened (him drinking, and causing this "perfect storm" in his system), within the next month he would have had a massive heart attack which would have killed him.....Very sobering....
I thank God that we didn't just go home after the funeral...if he would have gone to bed....and blacked out - he would not be here today, because he stopped breathing 3 times before we got him to the hospital. If we would have gone home, instead of the restaurant, it would have been a much different outcome.
The big artery that they have nick-named the "widow maker" was 98% blocked, and he also has another artery 70% blocked. They did a heart catherization, and put a stent in the artery that was 98% blocked, and he may have to go in and have a stent put in the other one in a few months.
This Christmas I got the best gift - My Husband!!!
