Scariest. Day. Ever.

That was my Saturday.

At the young age of 42, my husband, Gary, suffered a heart attack.

Just typing that sentence seems unreal.

It's a long story, which I will share eventually, but for now, I will let our friends and family know that he was immediately rushed to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI, on Saturday, where they performed coronary angioplasty.  He stayed overnight and was transferred to Windsor Regional Hospital - Met Campus tonight, where he'll stay for a few days.

He's doing well, but is still having the severe gastrointestinal pain that originally brought us to the ER in the first place.  So, hopefully they can resolve that while he's in there, too.

I have to give a big THANK YOU to my beautiful friend, Holly, who traveled down this weekend for a drum corps show and a visit and ended up watching my kids and keeping me sane.  I *heart* you, lady!!

I will keep you all updated on Gary's progress.  And please, learn the symptoms of a heart attack -  chances of survival are greatly increased if you get treatment right away.

  2. Big hugs Sue. I hope Gary recovers quickly and gets home to you and the kids soon.

  3. Hugs sue and will pray for a speedy recovery for Gary. Sending u hugs if strength as emotionally and physically you will be tested. Don't be afraid to ask someone to do laundry, clean cook etc when u get offers of "what can I do". Step out of your superwoman cape and let your friends takeover as that's only healthy for you and the kids and you would surely do the same if shoe was on other foot

    Mwah and if I can do anything from afar, please ask. Wish I was closer to help u but being here means I can offer. Imputed help, send delivery, make calls - whatever u need

    Yes b/c he got help right away he will hopefully recover faster as well. Try tI rest while he is in the hospital as he is in good hands and u need strength

  4. My heart goes out to you Sue - I went through the same thing in November. It's frightening and scary. We were lucky that help arrived quickly and only slight damage was done to the heart.
    David is now back at work and much, much better.
    I hope for the same for Gary.
    Sending you hugs.
    Know that I'm thinking of you all.
    With love. xx
