Stent Placed

January 8, 2009 at 10:51 am 4 comments

Larry had his heart cath overnight and a stent is already placed.  (They typically go ahead and place the stent during the cath if one is needed–I did not know that).  It was placed in an artery that was 70% blocked.
They will want to hold him in the hospital longer than they normally hospitalize someone here after a stent to be sure he is flight worthy.  (They will tell him in a couple days how long that will need to be.)

Everything went typically.  He did fine during the procedure, and will lay flat on his back 5-6 hours–I’m sure that will uncomfortable with his back.

He was awake during the procedure (typical)– a praise that we don’t have to worry about any problems with sedation!

We praise the Lord and continue to pray as he recovers.

    That is so awesome! My hubby has had stents put in a few times. It was amazing to me how far technology has come even since he had his first one put in… Praise God with you for Larry’s successful procedure and praying for speedy recovery!

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
