Yes, the angiogram showed minor plaque buildup in a few places – which will be worked on through medications and diet. I have no blockages; there is no need for stents or bypass surgery or anything like that. I have not had a heart attack. My heart works just fine! (Though there may be a certain skepticism about that among you, my gentle readers…) But its mechanical function is just fine! And thanks be to God for that! Yes, thanks be to God! It's about the best outcome I can imagine.
The doctor said, after about a week’s recover from the procedure (they did puncture my femoral artery after all), I’d be cleared for exercise (damn it).
Seriously, I felt covered in prayer. I thank you for all of those prayers. I received wonderful cards, notes and email which I found very encouraging indeed.
I feel good. I’m continuing with my diet. We have beautiful fall weather in
North Idaho. Life is good. God is great!
