He’s Back Home

The past 4 days have been a total blur. With lots of shuttling between home and the hospital. I’ve lost track of time. I don’t even remember if I’ve eaten at times. Because all I can think of is my hubby, if he’s going to be alright, if the angioplasty procedure has gone well, when can he come home, how can we make his life better in the coming months and years to prevent this from happening again etc. All of these clouded my mind for days. I didn’t feel tired at all when I was running about during the day but when I laid down to rest on bed at night, I felt exhaustion consumed me mentally and physically. I’ve never felt so lonely before in my entire life. And I continue to pray constantly and wished my dear hubby will get back to his feet and come home soon. I think at that point of time, I felt really scared. But I told myself I have to be strong for him and my son. I have to shake off that fear and be strong for him and my son. I always think women handles crisi better than men, don’t you think? No matter what happened, women will always hang on to life and make things better and we always persevere.

So, 4 days after he had a mild heart attack and successfully wemt through the procedure , my dearest hubby is finally back home yesterday afternoon! I was jumping with joy when he told me in the morning that the doctor gave him the green light to go home. My son and I were looking forward to this day so much and we couldn’t be happier to have him back home.

Once again, THANK YOU all for your well wishes, your phone calls and messages! I truly appreciate your kind thoughts and for keeping my hubby and my family in your prayers.

Here’s the old horse when I picked him up yesterday from the hospital, ooking great but a little pale, on the road to speedy recovery!:D

    I am so glad that things are working out well. After reading your post about the heart attack, I have been keeping my fingers crossed and keeping your husband and your family in my prayers (and checking your blog-thanks for posting). Your husband always looks like such a sweetheart. I am happy that he is doing well. I am wishing him a speedy recovery!

    Hey Leena, really great to hear that your hubby’s back home. I know exactly how you feel about this whole incident. My father had a heart attack in 2005, and it happened right infront of me. We were at my son’s kindergarten, waiting for him to finish school. My dad was next to me when he suddenly felt uneasy and told me he needed to sit down. At first I thought he was having a tummyache, but later he recognised the symptoms and had a feeling he was having a heart attack and told me to quickly send him to hospital. He had same symptoms as your hubby, cold sweat and chest tightened. I drove like a lunatic to CGH, my father told me to slow down, but I could see from the rear view mirror that he was not ok. I drove straight into A&E, luckily didn’t hit the pillars. LOL.
    Later on I found out if I didn’t get to the hospital sooner, he could have died. I broke down when I heard that. It was too much for me.
    My father stopped smoking since then, and also watched his diet more stringently.
    So I know how you feel – it’ll take a while for your hubby to get back on his feet but he will, can see he’s a strong guy and he’s still young. :) You have been strong too – well done Leena. I would have crumbled if I were in your shoes.
    Before I go, not sure if you know you’re featured at heart handmade UK? I just saw the post and am so happy for you!!
    Take care!
