Sissy is SAFE!
I am posting today to celebrate my darling Sister Clytie's release from the hospital! Saturday, September 24, my sweet little sis Clytie was rushed to emergency. She was in tremendous pain. This was the second time she'd gone into emergency over the past few weeks. Turns out what the doctors from local urgent care thought might be acid reflux disease--was in reality a blockage in her heart.
God protected her! The tests they did for heart related problems had came back as normal, or just a tiny bit high.
So many of you were Praying for Clytie. I am so glad--because I'm sure as a result of your prayers, the emergency room doctor got a bee in his bonnet--he was convinced there was a blockage -- he would not give up looking for one.
This wonderful doctor even asked for two-year old data from another hospital, in order to compare the tests. Thank GOD! Because of this doctor's dogged persistence Sissy is going to be just fine.
Clytie had an angiogram, during which the actual blockage was discovered. They cleared the vein and installed a stent.
I know there was an angel hanging over that doctor's shoulder, urging him to look further, even though the tests came back as normal.
You can visit Clytie at Random Hearts. She tells me she can hardly wait to go walking!!!
Sissy has had two brushes with the great beyond. First the stroke from which she was healed and then a near heart attack. I know she has something important to do.
