Not the outcome we had hoped for

After being in the Operating Room for 2 hours today the Dr. was unable to open the stent and return blood flow in the main vain in my left leg. So, in two weeks we will go back to Rochester Ny to see the vascular surgeon to discuss bypass. This is not an easy decision, most vascular bypasses fail within the first year and this is MAJOR surgery. I will more then likely be in the Hosp for 4-5 days and the recovery period is weeks. Your continued prayers and support would be a blessing in this difficult time. The next few weeks will be rough.

I want to thank all of you for your love and support. God has truly blessed our family with the love for each other and the support of loving friends. I lean on my Lord, my family and you my friends when I have these health issues and I thank you for allowing me to do that.
God Bless all of you
Penny
