Holy crap. I saw his tweet, but couldn't imagine that it might be something this serious. I really hope you guys get through this alright.
Holy shit, Gini! That must be scary. *hugs* Yes, it's very good he didn't ignore that pain. Wow.
My thoughts are with Ferrett, your family, and loved ones.
Thank God he didn't ignore it!! My prayers are with you for an easy and quick resolution. Aren't we lucky that we live in a time when such surgeries are 'routine'? My Dad in the 60's had a bypass when it was still 'experimental".
Take yourself to the gift shop and buy yourself a book. Go to the caf and get something to eat and a cup of tea. Leave your cell phone number with the nurse on duty while you do this. Take care of YOU, so you can take care of him. Call some family and/or friends and ask them to 'spell you' over the next few days so you can go home and get some rest.
excellent advice! especially the part about getting friends to spell you, hospitals are very stressful.
*hugs* (and by proxy for him when he is up to delivery)
Yikes. Hope the recovery is VERY swift.
And yeah, that casual tone of doctors when delivering bad news is really something, isn't it?
===Erg! Much well wishes to you both, and better than ever expected results for him!
You are both in my thoughts. Very glad that Ferrett listened to his body and got help!
I am really glad that you got him in there in time to prevent damage, and that the doctors know what they need to do. Also, that modern medical technology is so much better than it was even ten years ago.
Won't stop me worrying about you both for the next few days though!
Oh my goodness. I'm glad he got in there quickly, and will be keeping you both in my thoughts.
"I am glad that he listened to his body, didn't ignore a chest pain, and got in here."
This. So very much this.
Good luck to both of you.
Yikes! I'm really glad that this is getting taken care of. Waiting is so hard, and hospitals are nerve-wracking - I hope you can curl up with a good book and distract yourself for a bit. You're both in my thoughts. *hugs*
Holy shit. I hope everything goes as well as possible.
I'm so, so sorry to read this. I wish I could sit and wait with you.
I'm so very glad that he listened to his body and made it to the hospital in time. Our love and healing to both of you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
That sounds extremely scary. I'm glad he got in there quickly and I will keep you both in my thoughts over the coming days. Please do update when you can and let us know how things are going!
