The Heart

We talked about posting this or not. We decided to post it.  

On Thursday, March 9 at about 5pm, Mark had a heart attack.  Quick thinking got the ambulance here in a very short time.  Mark was in the Cardiac Cath Lab in short order.  He has a stent.  He spent one night in the ICU and then one night in a cardiac care room. Lon was able to visit him once he was in the cardiac care room.
The heart attack happened very quickly and it was very scary.  Lon was home and he was wonderful. He rounded up the cats,  and locked them in their bathroom to get them out of the way. One less thing to worry about.  I dropped Lon off at a neighbors before getting to the hospital as fast as I could.  Lon did not freak out, he kept calm and followed all the  instructions he was given. I am so very proud of him.
Mark is home and resting this week

Pebbles is doing her best to make sure that Daddy doesn't work too hard

Can't do much with a sleeping kitten on your lap.  All part of the plan.

It's hard work, keeping Daddy from working and forcing him to rest. She is showing him the correct posture for REST! Good kitty!! ;)
