In place of four things, day 12

Dad went to emergency yesterday in the early evening — anterior STEMI. 99% blockage of the anterior LAD at the dominant diagonal branch. Significant stenosis elsewhere. Balloon and stent. He’s in the hospital (not in an ICU bed) and I will go there shortly.

I was driving back home and was about a half hour away when he began to suffer — his personal care worker was here. She had seen this before — got dad in the car, drove through the road repair construction zone maze, and had him in emergency within fifteen minutes. They saw him (according to her) in 90 seconds after she drove up to the entrance. It’s no exaggeration to say she saved his life; that, along with our (around here) typical “no wait” acute care situation.

Dad was going to assisted living today, or that was the plan.

I’m putting this here as part of the diary mode; and just to say this to someone; I’m closing comments because although I appreciate them, and you, I don’t know when I’ll be able to answer. Thanks for all of your prayers and thoughts — we appreciate them massively.
