Short. Sweet. To The Point.

More tomorrow, but I have to say something quick...

The cath was clear. The block in the circumflex artery they were concerned about was only blocked by 20%. According to Husband, "That's nothing." Apparently, when it comes to the heart- 20% is equal to 0%. Math was never my strong suit.

That being said- there is still a problem. They start tomorrow trying to fix his kidneys.

More good news- he is gaining some feeling back in his left side.

It's the little things, SIL texted us just a moment ago. As mom, dad, Husband, LMC, and I sat around the kitchen table, each in our own world and each thankful for the same and for different reasons, we saw the message-- "Brother's back itches!"

Count your blessings. Hug your people. Say good things to both the good and the grumpy. Scratch your back.



PS- I am having a hard time not thinking of the flux capacitor when they kept saying circumflex artery. Compound that with the fact that when Brother was in the ER, they asked him (more than once) what the date was. "November 5, 1955" was his response.
Not once.
Not twice.
Not three times.
Over and over until everyone was concerned, even SIL... and then he said, "I was standing on the toilet and hanging a clock and then I fell and hit my head on the sink. That's when I came up with the idea for the flux capacitor."
SIL about fell out and screamed at him, "Honestly, Brother. There is no DeLorean here. What year is it? NOW!"
Brother responded, "2012" ... as if to say, "Duh."
