Yesterday afternoon I took my husband to the hospital. They he has two serious problems with his heart.

They are running test, so far they think he will need a pacemaker for the one problem, but they wouldn't say much else regarding the other problem until all the test were in.

He didn't have any pain but he couldn't breathe good, was very weak, and his heart rate was extremely low, hence the pacemaker probably.

I'm probably super worried when it might not be necessary but He is 83 years old and I fear he might has a value problem or some form of heart failure.

Well off to the hospital I go. Will keep you all updated.

I'm also praying. Strength and healing for your husband; strength and comfort for you; and wisdom for the doctors. Praying that you get some answers soon. The waiting can be hard too.

prayers for you all. I was there this summer, DH has his first heart attack on July 4th, he was 42. It is not fun being the wife of the patient when you know the doctors know things and have ideas, but you can't get the information out of them until they talk to what feels like 10 different specialists... I hope you get some reassurance and support soon.

Good morning all,

Thank you for all your prayers. They did an emergency surgery and put in the pacemaker. His heart rate would not go above 30. During the surgery they couldn't give him the normal amount of Anastasia due to his bad COPD because his CO2 kept dropping down really low, and with less Anastasia his body was thrashing around a lot. They had to hold him down as best they could. He was not in pan just not enough Anastasia.

While he was in the recovering area his blood pressure dropped to less 60/40. They did a quick electrocardiogram and called the surgeon back in. They discovered, which does happen occasionally in this situation where the wire for the pacemaker was inserted punctured a whole in the heart and his heart was bleeding. They immediately took him back in the surgery area and went back in adjusted the wire, suctioned out the blood and put in a tube for further draining. They said that most times once the wire is out the hole will plug back up, but if not they they would have call a specialist in to do surgery to repair it.

So far this morning it appears all is going to be fine in regards to this situation. His heart rate and blood pressure is up and very little drainage. Praise God.

One more hurtle to go through. I still don't know what the results of full electrocardiogram that was done are. I'm praying he doesn't has any value or heart failure disease. I should know about that sometime to day when the other cardiologist comes in. I didn't realize they different heart specialist for different cardiologist for different situations.

Again thank you for all prayers. I will update later or tomorrow about the electrocardiogram results.

Oh my, so much for you to deal with. I'll continue praying. So glad he's stable for now. Take care of yourself. You'll be no help to him (or yourself) if you don't eat good and rest. I'll also pray for the test results and knowledge for the docs. I too didn't know they had different docs for different situations. Hope you have someone there to help you through this. Thank you for updating us.
