For The Love Of A Brother

It was a little exciting in the Sounding Forth and Fiberhawk households yesterday. I got a call from my Brother Scott about 10:30 a.m. yesterday.


Hey, Sis. I’m heading to Odessa to the cardiologist, Dr. Raja Naidu.
What?
Yup. I think I may have had a heart attack this morning at work.

When I can breathe, I tell him: Don't do this s**t to me, Scott. If you die on me, I'll freakin' kill you. Seriously.

I know, I am a serious encourager, aren't I? (You always want me around when things are serious - I will remind you just HOW serious.) We laugh, but inside, I am starting to Freak. Out. In. The. Coolest. Way. Possible. I can't breathe. We lost one brother to cancer, not ready to lose Scott, too. He will be 50 this year. He’s fit as a fiddle. Doesn’t drink. Eats anything he wants. Goes 90 mph like someone else y’all know all the time. Doesn’t smoke. Oh, wait. He does smoke. Seriously. Time to ask for help. I get on the prayer e-mail chain.

This morning while at work, Scott had an episode and may have experienced a heart attack. He went straight to the hospital at Big Spring, and they saw something on his EKG that looked suspicious, and wanted to admit and keep him. Scott and Lisa decided to go another route and went to their local physician, who referred them to a cardiologist in Odessa. Scott and Lisa went straight to that cardiologist, who got them in immediately for an examination. The cardiologist has now scheduled an angiogram at 4pm this afternoon. If everything goes well, Scott will get to come home.

Scott seems to be fine, and I’ll be heading over to Odessa to be there before the procedure. Scott and Lisa have 2 sons in high school, 1 in college, and 1 sweet grandchild - all of whom need their dad and grandpa healthy and in his usual 90 mph mode! (Besides that, we still have some competitive sibling rivalry going on - Scott’s not yet beat my shooting score! ;) ) Just wanted to let y’all know and to ask for your prayers for Scott and our family. I’ll update you as I know more.

At 3:45 p.m., we’re with Scott in the pre-surgery room, cracking jokes, having fun. At 4:15 p.m., the nurses take him to the cath lab. Twenty minutes or so later, Dr. Naidu comes to get us, and shows us the angiogram results. We can see Scott laughing with the nurses in the cath lab.
Scott says this is how it went down in the cath lab.

Dr. Naidu asked Scott: What do you eat? Scott : Anything that’s put before me, I’m not picky. Greasy hamburgers, anything. Doctor: Do you smoke? Scott: Yes, about a pack a day. For the last 30 years.

The results? 100% CLEAR. I kid you not. I saw the scan myself, it looks marvelous. We don’t know what caused the episode, so that may remain a mystery. Stress? Muscle spasm? Anyway, Scott was released to go back to work today.

And me? I am so very thankful. I love that brother of mine. And he can beat me shooting anytime. Yeah, well, anytime he thinks he’s big enough. Heh.

Whew. What a releif!

The Other Janie said...

That's great news that all was clear. Tell him it's the cigarettes and greasy food that is affecting his shooting abilities. That will get his attention more than a measly heart attack. :)

Seriously, prayers were answered.

tardevil said...

I'm so glad everything went well! Maybe he just had indigestion...although that's an expensive case of it, if that's all it was! :O)

Smartass Milf said...

So glad he is okay! My best friends step-father died of one at the age of 46 almost two years ago. It's such a scary thing to have someone there one minute and gone the next.

Belle said...

Phew. I glad for you - and Scott and his family.
You take care of him now.
And
Get him to stop smoking...

Gwynne said...

What a scare! My "little" brother had a similar one last year...a real wake-up call. Glad everything turned out okay!

TexasRed said...

What a relief!

My father had a scare last month & had an angiogram and stent inserted. I'm posting about it & fundraising for the American Heart Association tomorrow.

jill jill bo bill said...

I know I have already told you this, but I am so thankful he is okay. You know he is going to be asking for sympathy when you guys compete again. Don't give in!!!!

Wunderwoman said...

I am so glad all is well.

Vodka Mom said...

holy freaking crap.

Vodka Mom said...

God DOES listen sometimes.

Michelle said...

YAY for Scott being totally clear on his angio!!!

I am happy that he is OK!!! But, Janie the smoking??? IDK, i just feel strongly about not smoking is all.

But, that is neither here nor there!!!

Just good news is the best news!!!

HAPPY DAY TO YOU!!!

Library girl said...

Great news! What a relief!

The W.O.W. factor said...

What a scare! Glad everything worked out this way! But humor? It can get a person through most things, can't it?
If'n I were you...I'd go over and beat him just for the heck of it now!
For the scare if nothing else!

Tabitha Blue said...

SO GLAD HE'S OK! I'm very close to my brother and couldn't even imagine! Glad you've got more time for sibling rivalry!

With due respect wow gold and humility I write you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. I am Mr.Ateeq Rahman Khan, currently Head of Corporate wow gold affairs with a reputable bank here.The battle PvP reasons frankly, I started working for an alternative to WOW, as I expect a number of measures I am not sure this is in the dofus kamas appropriate forum, but I'll try to help, but for those who may enter here with the same concerns about the BG. You can not control what the adversary, but you can create kamas dofus your own gains honor. During the course of which Mod you on both pages is available, the Alliance and the Horde, if you suspect fraud, you do not want it, create your own AV Premade.May I recommend you wow gold to your own WSG, AB, and EotS premade? As you've noticed, more generally premade roll over Mops because PUG's are not world of warcraft gold coordinated, and most probably not well enough. Honor, maximize profits, jumping back and forth between AB wow powerleveling and EotS, if you have a queue of pre-you.The remains leader and re-queuing, if someone in the BG calls for by wow power leveling ago premade.If can 't find enough people, one BG complete within your corporation and friends, then perhaps world of warcraft gold you should do what someone on our server The creation of a separate channel for pvp premade.Now, everybody wow geld looking for a pre-pvppremade can. the nerf my friend quit playing.The RAF program should be removed its a free to play wow gold mechanic used to draw money in for a company which does not have a subscription fee.I think one pissed High Templar would pretty much bedofus kamas GG for all of that..Yet another fastest player trying to meddle his nose in REAL melee. The battlecruiser can't take out anything on its own. And for that cost? Why buy it for a support unit when the Lord of the Rings Online Gold valkeriye fulfills the role? Or the wraith for that fact. On paper its supposed to be one of the assault ships, but its not. REAL melee? Are you stupid? I meanLOTRO Gold look, dude...your probably one of em noob zerg players. lol its so easy to play em. build x5 hatcheries and profit???? One defilier flyff alone could wipe out a whole terran battlegroup of forces. I remember the glory days of defliers flyff penya and mutalisks. Oh, and another way to win air fights with zerg is to send in a billion overlords. To buy cheap Final Fantasy XI gil WOW gold,WOW money,WOW accounts,WOW power leveling here will be your best choice!Those cases are clear to my mind because every time it happens, I ffxi gil ask myself "how the hell do you dodge an attack you can't even SEE?"Melee DPSers in your raid are playing very badly, increasing the eq2 plat damage to your tank and decreasing their own damage output. Mobs do dodge from behind, but they don't parry or block. Simply fighting from behind a mob results in an increase of 5% in your DPS on most mobs eq2 gold because you cut parry out, plus you avoid giving the mob the 'next swing is 50% faster' that they get on a successful wow po parry.Don't forget that some even get BONUS attacks when they parry. I can't tell you how many times we wiped wow or on Gruul because of hateful strikes...Melee LOTR Gold DPS should always be behind mobs as much as possible in raids.Or zerglings, never tanks. And for your Warhammer gold little tank theory,and buy Warhammer gold guardian do aoe.No, seriously. I like it like it has always been Amen brother! my battlecrusers got torn up soooooo easily! i think the carriers are fine. the intersepters Warhammer gold look weaker, though.They are the same, carriers just can't make extra 4 interceptors now.

What a relief. Must've been the prayer email...

Ginger said...

My hubby went through this procedure 4 years ago because his ekg was abnormal. He sounds alot like your brother...eats everything he shouldn't, smokes a pack a day, and drinks tons of coffee. I couldn't believe it when the cardiologist said everything was perfect with his heart. What the heck?? But he has emypthesema from smoking. I knew those cigarettes had to be doing some damage!!
Glad your brother is okay.

Good heavens! You should delete fengye up there. He's long winded.

I was freaking out here when you started talking pre-surg and wahtnot. But I let out the breath when you said he was A-OK. Thank god.
Glad everything turned out ok in the end.

Valerie said...

So glad everything turned out ok. I know what's it's like to lose a brother too. My sister went to the doctor a couple of years ago thinking she had a heart attack - it was gas.
