    BTW, I drive a 1989 Oldsmobile with 220,000 miles on it...and my husband drives a 1999 BMW with about 120,000 miles on it. Fortunately, he works from home and I have only an 11-mile commute each way.

    But, quilters are creative, gracious, and always just a bit "spunky". Keep up the good work, everyone.

    I'm so glad to hear that I'm not the only one against Wal-Mart these days. I don't know what else to say here tonite, I'm still in shock I think. I just got home from the hospital. I've been there since 10 this morning. My husband had a heart attack today. They put in a stint cuz 1 artery was completely blocked. He has 3 more blocked: 1 is 30%, 1 is 50% and another is 75% blocked. They are treating those with massive doses of plavix and some other stuff I don't know what it's for. And his diabettes which I'm sure caused the heart attack in the first place. I wish someone was here with me right now cuz I'm so scared and I don't want to be alone. I so afraid he's going to die. They made me leave and go home. About 5:00 his BP went down to 57/34 and his pulse was about 35. They actly quickly and got it back up some. At 10:00 they said he was stable again and that I should go home. I was hysterical and didn't want to go but they made me. I'm not going to be able to sleep tonite. I half to stay awake in case they call. So dear dear friends of mine please say a prayer for my husband. We've been married 34 years and I don't know what I'd do if he dies. Thank you all and bless you.

    You are in my prayers, Debbie. I'm asking God to surround you with ministering angels and with peace and to bring you comfort right now. I am also praying you can get some sleep.

    Debbie,
    I was so sorry to hear about the crisis you're facing today. Words just don't seem sufficient comfort now. Stay on-line as long as you can this evening...and I'm sure folks will be there to "talk" with you.

    Prayers for you, your husband, and the medical staff's wisdom. You mentioned Plavix and "something else". It may be coumadin, a blood thinner.

    The good news is that your husband is in exactly the right place for him now...the hospital. Please take comfort in that.

    I'm on the other side of the continent, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please, if you can, keep us posted on how things progress.

    Hugs,
    m.

    We too are on the other side of the continent, but our hearts are with you and your husband! I wish I could drive over there right now!

    Here's hugs and love coming to you from California!

    Debbie,
    DOn't know what to say except that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hang in there and take care of you so you will be able to take care of your husband when he comes home.
    Put your feet up and close your eyes. Even if you don't sleep you will at least rest a bit.
    We're thinking of you!
    Yvonne

    Debbie, I know from personal experience how terrified you must be. My husband went in for wht he thought was a cold 7 years ago and was transported by ambulance to the hospital. We were very lucky. He had blockages but did not suffer a heart attack. It is the most awful feeling for your life to be in someone else's hands. Take courage and comfort form knowing we are all praying with you and for God to work his healing touch on your husband.
    My husband made it through. He was a 2-3 pack a day smoker then. He doesn't smoke anymore, thank goodness, but he has gained a lot of weight so I worry about the extra work his heart has to do.
    I will be thinking of you and praying for you. Wilmington has a really good hospital, so take comfort in knowing that.

    Debbie, we are all praying!!! They can do amazing things now adays with the heart!! I'm sure he is in great hands. Brings back thoughts of when my son had brain surgery to remove cancer, it was like a sword had pierced my heart when he cried out for "help" as they wheeled him out of the operating room, he was cut from ear to ear, I felt so helpless, wanting to hold him in my arms, but I wasn't allowed to touch him yet. His cry of Help haunted me, what was going on in his thoughts, was he feeling his
    life slipping away?.....he is fine for right now..God has answered our prayers..he'll hear and answer yours!!! May our Lords peace surround you and your husband!!!
