Unhappy My grandpa had a heart attack today!

He's in Trail-Nelson hospital right now, being transferred to St. Paul's on Sunday for an angiogram. Guess who is on call Sunday in the Cath Lab at St. Paul's? ME! I'm going to be assisting on an angiogram for my own grandpa. Kind of weird.

Absolutely. I have a lot of work to do during the cases, no time to think about who is on the table. I've been in the Cath Lab for some celebrities, politicians, my old baseball coach, a coworker, etc. It's just another angiogram/angioplasty for me.

I think my knowledge is actually helping me, since I know he is ok right now and I know what to expect when he gets there.

That's cool. You definitely gain a different perspective on health issues having that knowledge. Sounds like everything should be ok and you know you've got the backing of VIC.

Thanks guys, I'll update you over the course of the weekend. He will be at St. Paul's on Sunday, but he may not get his angiogram until Tuesday since the Cath Lab is technically closed on the weekend/holidays except for emergencies.

James, I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa. My father had an angiogram and coronary artery bypass surgery done on December. His procedures went very well. I hope the procedure goes well with your grandpa as well.

Yeah this is his second heart attack. His first one was 8 years ago and he had a stent put in. He doesn't take all his cardiac meds because he's into all this herbal crap Well, now he'll probably need another stent and a lecture from his grandson.

Best wishes to him and hope he fully recovers. My grandparents are both around 85 turning 86 soon. Deteriorating health isn't nice to know like low hemoglobin, knee problems.... just got to spend whatever time they have left with them!

How old is your grandpa?

Good luck with your grampa's treatment, my man.
You're a much stronger person than many. I don't think I'd have the ability or strength to do that sort of thing to a family member.

Take care.
