My step-dad was taken to St. Vincent's in Erie today after a heart cath revealed he has a least 2 blocked arteries and an aneurysm. They will be attempting stents tomorrow but will do cardiac bypass immediately if necessary. Jerry is mad he's even there.....thinks nothings wrong, of course!! I live here in Cincy......Mom says not to make the trip, it hopefully will be all over tomorrow but I hate not being there with her. (My brother is there ) Mom and Jerry are huge Steeler fans........please remember them in your thoughts and prayers. Much appreciated! Stillers4me

Everything will be OK, s4m. My brother had 3 stents done last Wednesday, he was back at work this Monday. I had quadruple bypass in '92, no problems since. Modern cardiac care is a triumph of medical science. He's with the best. Hang in there, 'K?

Thanks, Mosca. Glad you're doing well. My dad has had a quad bypass and a pacemaker.....he's been one very sick man ever since, never got better. I know most people do very well afterward.

Hey girl! You know that you and your family are already in my prayers. Don't hesitate to give me a call if you want to talk. We have had lots of heart stuff on both sides of my family. Please let me know how things go. (I wondered why you were on here so early this afternoon) Take care. :smile:

Thanks, Flood! I'm home today, actually because I have the afternoon off. I have to work Saturday morning so we get an afternoon off through the week when that happens. I was ready to pack up and drive home but Mom says "stay put" and I know better than to disobey Mom!

Thank you all! My brother just called and said mom is being set up with a room near the hospital. Thank goodness she is staying put because my brother said it's snowing like a "you know what" up there and it's an hour drive from their house in Jamestown to Erie.

Please know, Stillers, that your family and especially your Stepdad will be in my thoughts and prayers. Medicine has come a long way in recent years and here's hoping the docs can rectify the problems he is and has been experiencing.

Please keep us posted.

BIG (((HUGS))) to you, hon. :hug: :hug:

Bypass surgery is so routine now -- my father in law had quadruple bypass surgery last week - he's already walking around being a pain in the ass again

Best wishes to you and your family. My mom just had 2 stints put in a few weeks ago and is doing fine now. I'm sure things will go well today. :smile:

Thank you all for every prayer and good vibe sent our way!! Jerry had two stents put in this morning and he should be released tomorrow!! (and will be resting comfortably....at least until Sunday at 4:00!!) Never, ever underestimate the power of prayer...especially those from the Steeler Nation!
