Gary gets 2 stents, can come home day after tomorrow

His blood pressure was still 180/95 and they were trying to get it down, but he is being told that smoking is the worst, chewing tobacco would be easier on the heart. But he appears strong. He was animated, so I don't think too much had happened before he got to the hospital. Thanks for all the comments. I really appreciate them and family for their phone calls and concern. I took the bus and walked about 3 blocks to the hospital, and Dawn, his ex wife was there, and she gave me a ride home.

Gerry, I just got to read your posts and am so sorry for your son's heart attack. I wish there was something I could do to help, if I were there, you would not have to ride the bus nor walk to see yor son. I will be praying for his quick recovery and also for your peace.
That was so sweet of Doc giving your grandson a birthday card!!!
You take care, please and God bless,
love ya,
carlene

I'm so glad Gary is ok. Just read all of your posts. That was close! He might need to slow down a bit as far as work goes. Will keep him in my prayers.

I talked to Gary on the phone, he was in good spirits for just having two stents put in that morning. Be careful walking in that Phoenix sun. L.
