OMG, what a day...

Wednesday, September 02, 2015

Saw my endocrinologist earlier this week and this was my first full day on a new dosage regimen...
... and one of my best friends, Teresa Earl, was driving her husband Bill out to do errands, and he had a massive heart attack. She pulled him from the van, and an off-duty EMT pulled over and helped her do CPR until the ambulance arrived. I met her at the hospital, and stayed with her until her children arrived. It got a little crowded so I went back to the hotel... He is currently in a medically induced state of hypothermia to try and preserve brain function while they work to stabilize his heart--the angiogram showed two chambers completely blocked and a third only marginally functional. IF they can stabilize him, he will need a double or triple bypass. All of their friends are exhausted and praying hard...
And I still haven't got a confirmation of progress on my apartment. Doesn't seem too important right now...

    Best friends ever, you are! Thanks...

    Bill (the husband) is doing better... but fighting an infection and lung congestion and had some internal blood loss for a bit. He had a transfusion yesterday afternoon and is holding his own.

    And I'm sleeping in my own apartment these days...

    ...on a mattress on the floor for now!

    Life sure is a roller coaster ride! emoticon LOL

    My husband's boss has been in a similar position - in ICU in an induced coma. I sent a prayer for your friend's husband. I hope he makes it. I hope you get into your new place soon too!!
