Surgery rescheduled AGAIN...

Update date on Papa…. Surgery was cancelled this morning. It was set for 730am, and they came to get him for prep around 615am. Well by 8am the surgery was officially cancelled. His heart rate kept going up way to high, normal for him is between 80-100 beats per minute, his heart rate this morning was up to 155. The anesthesiologist tried giving papa medicine to slow his heart down, they gave him medicine for anxiety that will actually made him forget a few days because it’s soo strong, they tried blood and fluids as well. Nothing worked; the lowest they got his heart rate to come down to was 136.

Now we are waiting for cardiology to come speak with us. They said anything from just heart stress to heart attack. Either way they will not do the surgery with his heart in this condition. It would be really risky for him, his heart could stop and that would be bad. His blood pressure is low and they are watching that every 15 minutes. They have done an EKG and have more tests ordered.

UPDATED: Thanks to a simple neck massage done by the cardiologist {there is a name for the “procedure”} his heart rate went down and now surgery is rescheduled for tomorrow at 2pm.
