A Health Note for our FROG Family

My DW, Marty (given name Martinette), has been dealing with a couple of health issues - with her lower back and her heart. She's had nerve tests, an MRI, etc., for her back and a nuclear/chemical stress test, etc. for her heart.

Re: back – surgery is not necessary at least in the short term. Doc set up an injection to relieve nerve swelling, etc., and will decide on the possibility of physical therapy depending on effect of injection. Shot doc had no openings before MARCH 17!

Re: heart – not so good. Stress test results reveal that a significant portion of her heart is getting insufficient blood flow. Doc told her to stop her regiment of walking 30 minutes each day – that people in her condition who press on with exercise, work, etc., often suffer major heart attacks. He will do a heart catheterization (probably Monday) as it appears a large artery near the front (I can’t remember anatomical terms) may be blocked. He has to get in there to see. He said IF it turns out she has several small arteries blocked, he’ll recommend open heart bypass surgery. I'll let you know more after this upcoming heart cath.

Thanks for offering a prayer, etc., on her behalf.

Sending a prayer to her and wishing a speedy recovery. My dad had 6 arteries blocked & had open heart surgery which went well. In a few months he was out painting the house.

Take care and please do keep us updated.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
