    Exclamation Judy (judow) could use your thoughts and prayers

    (posting this with permission).

    Last night I was in town teaching my Family-to-Family class for NAMI. About mid-way though the class, my cellphone vibrated with an incoming call. I normally don't answer my cell phone during class, but I recognized the number as my friend and neighbor Judy (judow on the forum). I thought about letting it go to voice mail and checking it during the class break, but something told me to go ahead and answer. She said, "this is Judy do you have a minute (or something to that effect)." I told her I was in class and asked if I could call her back at the break. To which she replied that she needed someone to take her to the hospital. Her husband was out of state.

    Long story short, she ended up calling 911 for an ambulance, but at the same time, I called my wife (since we live only a few miles from Judy) and asked her if she could go stay with Judy while waiting for the ambulance, which she did. Judy lives in the same county as Albuquerque, but very much out in the sticks so it took the ambulance 25 minutes to get there. My wife followed them to the hospital in town, then came home once she knew Judy was being taken care of, etc.

    This morning Mary called Judy and learned that they are going to be doing a heart valve replacement surgery on her. Hence the request to keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

    (I know a lot of folks in the Healey forum don't frequent the Pub so I'm making this a global post)

    Re: Judy (judow) could use your thoughts and prayers

    UPDATE and great news! Just got a call from a Judy and they ran a catheter and found she had a 90% blockage of her carotid artery. They put a stint in today and now feel she will not need the valve replacement at this time!

    She is still in the hospital but sounds like she may be able to go home as soon as this Sunday! She sounded very upbeat and relieved that she won't need major surgery at this time.

    Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

    Glad to hear the good news. Also glad they found that blockage before something much more serious happened. Get well soon Judy.

    Just got update from her hubby, Doug. Mixed news. She did go home Monday, but ended up taking another ambulance ride back to the hospital (not sure if this was Monday night or after) due to breathing difficulties I think. They put her on O2 and sent her home again. She is currently still home and on O2, but it sounds like the O2 is a temporary thing while she recuperates; otherwise her vitals are good.

    Thanks for the update Basil. Since she's back home now I'm betting that she's checking the BCF and so here's a wish for you, Judy, to mend quickly and fully. Your Healey needs you!

She is still on O2, but hopefully that's only temporary.

    Just got off the phone with Judy. She's still on the road to recovery and has been focused on getting better so hasn't been on the forum. I'm sure she will eventually and she can fill you all in on the details of her journey.
