I had to call 911 this morning as my husband was having acute back pain. Found out he has a tear in his aorta that runs from his heart to his leg.The dr says surgery would be eight to ten hours and he has a ten to fifteen chance of not making it. I'm scared but I have a lot of support. My parents, sisters, and brother and best friend are here. Surgery started at noon and it is 3pm here now.

How did hubby come through his surgery? How are you holding up? An aortic tear is a life-threatening situation. Many don't even make it to the hosp. in time to get into surgery. I hope he is doing well. Prayers for you both. (A retired nurse.) JCY
