    Just a note to say I'll likely be away for a few days; husband had an MI early this morning and has had an angioplasty and stent placed to open a 99% blockage in his LAD. So far he's mostly stable but has had a few complications. Asking for thoughts and prayers ...

    Sending good thoughts for a quick recovery. How frightening no matter how stable. Makes one feel vulnerable. Hang in there. Take care of yourself too.

    I'm so sorry -- how scary for both of you! I will keep you both in my prayers and hope that his doctors are able to fully stabilize him and that he'll be home soon.

    Please take care. Being a health professional is both enlightening and frightening in these circumstances.

    Thank you all for so many kind notes and thoughts. husband is doing better; he's remained stable so we're all breathing easier. It's a wake-up call for sure. I'm so grateful for the fantastic care he received ... so many goodhearted, skilled, caring people, we feel very blessed.

    Thank you all again! Now comes the rehab and the task of getting husband to rework his priorities to lessen his stress ... one day at a time.

    Katya, what a relief! Might I suggest a new specialty: DERMATOLOGY! No on call time...
