Tuesday, I think,
Today was a little mixed up. The NP had Roger and I all exited about going home, so from about 10 in morning until 1 we thought we were headed home. (More than just a little scary to me). The cardiologist then arrived around 3 and had no idea why discharge was even discussed. Explaining again maybe by Thursday or Friday. BUT, Roger is out of ICU, and in Telemetry area (has a portable heart monitor so he can move around easier, and a room with a shower/potty. Doctor says everything looks good, but needs to be monitored a few more days. It was a pretty serious heart attack and the blood thinners are causing some bleeding in the prostate/bladder worse. We were fortunate to have arrived at the ER when we did. He can received visitors, and now has a phone in the room. Feel free to leave a message at the house or one of our phones and will call back with details. Roger is going stir crazy, hates being in the hospital and I am sure would love company or calls. Prayers for his friend, Les (his dementia has worsened and will likely have to be in a nursing home) Love and Prayers appreciated!
