Brother had Heart Attack

Oct 24, 2016 6:54 AM

I'm in a flare now. I'm nervous. My brother is very physically active. He rides his bike hundreds of miles at times. Yesterday after a bike ride. He didn't feel good. His wife suspected heart attack so took him to hospital. The local hospital put 3stints in him then life flighted him to bigger hospital (In city I live). He can't see anyone. He has to remain quiet and calm. Please pray if you do or send good thoughts or vibes.
Update: Mark has damage to back of heart. He is restricted to what he can do. They'll reassess his heart in 4-6 weeks. He'll have to rehab exercises. He'll never be able to ride his bike like he use to.

Prayers for your brother. Its amazing the strides that has been made in treating cardiac patients.

One thing I discovered is a lot of hospitals offer free e-cards you can send to patients there. If you can't get in to see him you might see if you can send a card with a note from you. Sometimes you have to really search to find it though as each hospital calls it by a different name. :) If you want me to elhelp you look just private message me the hospital name. :)

I know this is stressful hun. That sure can play havoc on us. Try to find some "you" time to just breathe. (((hugs)))

AnimalLover2, your brother is definitely in my prayers! Rest is very important for him right now. If you can't do e-cards Mimikay suggested, just send a card with a personal note. I'm sure it will cheer him to know you are thinking of him constantly. Try to relax with stretches or a walk outside, or sitting in a park. Hugs love & prayers for a speedy recovery for him, and much less worry & flare pain for you! 🙂💕🙏🌸
