having a heart attack

Hi to all of you,
I am Ronnie's wife and I just wanted to let you all know that Sat morn about 4am Ronnie had a massive heart attack. he is in the hosp in ICU, they did a heart catherization and found that the main artery going into your heart was 100% blocked, they vacuumed the blood clot out and inserted a balloon to keep the artery open. They will start trying to wean him off of the balloon tomorrow and if things go ok they will remove the balloon and we will go from there. He has a long road ahead of him and I am asking for everyone to keep him in your prayers. God Bless you all. Janet

Re: having a heart attack

Hi Janet. Just read your post tonite about Ronnie. I am so sorry for him and your family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ronnie, you and your family. I went back and read some of his posts and I could relate to so much of what he said about us polio survivors. Take care of youself so you can be there for Ronnie. Phyllis
