This heart attack for Irv is pretty serious and his recovery will be long. His first heart attacks he bounced back really quickly but this one is much harder for him and us.
He has been in hospital for two weeks as of Friday, July 28. The new heart attack didn’t cause a lot more damage than the previous four but it’s the accumulative effect.
The doctors can’t do anything surgically so before they can release him they want him on new meds and routines he can maintain at home. They are enrolling him in a monitor at home program and will have nurses visiting him there.
His energy levels need to be built up too. He is tired a great deal of the time and is having breathing issues especially at night. So he doesn’t rest well.
We do expect he might be home in a few days. They moved him out of intensive care to a regular bed at 2pm Friday. But the sooner he gets home the better. That means our family isn’t making the daily commute to Hamilton and will take pressure off us all to let us get back to normal.
Irv and I want to thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes. Your thoughts mean a lot to us.
I will try to update again very soon.
In the meantime here is a new wedding photo for you.
