My dad goes for surgery wednesday and for a second precedure 3 weeks after. As the day comes closer the worse I feel about it. My dad is on dialysis and is 82 yrs. old. Anyone here ever have this operation? Any advise? Anyway when dad is done with all of this I have to go for endoscopy with aspiration for pancreas. I have a cystic leasion on pancreas that grew a little and has to be checked. My dad and I had our share of health issues and normally I am not one to worry or get upset but this time it is getting to me. I pray and I block things out. It helps most of the time but come the night I start thinking about everything and I get upset. Sorry to put all this here but everyone is asleep so I might as well let it out so I can get to sleep. Pray for us!! Carmela
i had an aortic aneurism three yrs ago, dec '09. luckily, an annual exam detected it...it's a silent killer. i'm 76 and feel great. active life; knights of columbus treasurer, plenty of yard work, at which i regale myself with playing bing radio programs or, often, classical music, take a taxing daily "power-walk" of 40-50 min., do the times' magazine puzzle. glamorous wife kathleen's still working. we'll include your dad in our rosary tonight.
Thanks Pat! Glad you are doing well! Dad had first precedure and goes for second one June 19th. I think his leg arteries were cleaned out next it's the Aorta/abdomin.
