Worries


The day before yesterday John went to have an ultrasound of his endograft.  In 2004 his cardiologist found that he had an abdominal aneurysm.  This is an extremely dangerous condition and he had to immediately have an endograft put in his abdomen to save and protect his life. The surgery went great and he has been doing really well ever since.   Yesterday after the ultrasound, the Dr. called and said that they think that there is bleeding around the bottom of the endograft.  This means that there is probably a leak in the endograft.  Today he had to go to the hospital and have a CT scan to determine what is going on.  The Dr. actually telephoned late in the afternoon, but John was on the phone and didn't answer the call.  Now we have to wait to call tomorrow to see what the results are.  As can be imagined, I am very worried.  We will see what happens tomorrow.
