Here I am…September 22, 2013 at 10:36 am | Posted in Aortic Rupture, Hospital, Hubby | 7 Comments
I haven’t posted since forever and here’s why: my husband had a ruptured aorta and had to have emergency surgery on Tuesday night; he’s still in Cardiovascular ICU attached to a ventilator and now on dialysis. Things are very serious. The surgeon who operated said that 50% of patients don’t even make it to the hospital, so that’s our first miracle.
He’s doing much better than the surgeon expected and that’s our second miracle. My son is up here with me and we’ve been in to visit Ron this morning. The nurse said he’s stable…all is well for now.
I would appreciate any and all prayers for my family, especially for my beloved husband.
