CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION for my BROTHER with an UPDATE*

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

For those of you who followed the medical needs of my brother, we finally have a possible solution to help aid in his full recovery. He is having a procedure on Thursday. It appears that the lower right/left of his heart is blocked and he is not getting the right amount of blood to his body. They will insert a stent to prolong both the procedure itself as well as the post-catheterization time spent in allowing the wound to clot. I looked this up on
Wikipedia. As long as he does not have bleeding after the procedure, he should be able to start his recovery over this mess! Please keep my brother in your prayers.

Thanks,

Luisa

UPDATE…………

The procedure for my brother went well. They did not have to do a by pass. They did not put in a stent. He is going to be put on new medication and monitored. He had no blood clots. His arteries were fine, for now. Later on, he may require more treatment. He is to lose weight and watch his diet. He is to exercise and stay out of the hot sun . He is still operating on a heart at 20%, but that is the best they can do for now. Thank you for your support. I REALLY appreciate it. It has helped me a lot!

I don’t believe an accident of birth makes people sisters or brothers. It makes them siblings, gives them mutuality of parentage. Sisterhood and brotherhood is a condition people have to work at.
