Hi fellow Gardners,

My younger son Jason could use your prayers and/or positive thoughts. He has been in hospital about 3 weeks. He thought he had bronchitis, but it was a bacterial pneumonia. At first, with their treatment, he was improving. Then the night of January 18 he had a heart attack, coded multiple times, and was shocked multiple times.

Last Friday the doctors performed the surgery where a tube is inserted through the large artery in the groin and then dye is inserted. It showed one of the main arteries in (to) the heart was 99% blocked. They inserted a balloon and inflated it to temporarily keep the passage open. Then he was transferred from Princess Anne Sentara to Norolk General Sentara, where their main cardiology hospital is. They performed a second surgery to remove the balloon and insert a permanent stent.

Since then he has steadily improved. Yesterday he had solid food for the first time since he went to the hospital. He was well enough to call and wish me a happy birthday. Believe me, hearing his voice was the best birthday present I could have received.

He is going to have a long recovery, so your prayers and/or positive thoughts will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

It is a relief that the problem was found. Finding the problem is 80% of the battle. I'm sure things will only get better from here. Recovery may not be as long as you think.

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

That was quite an ordeal, Jema. I wish your son a quick and lasting recovery.


Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

Thanks so much everyone for your prayers and positive thoughts. They are much appreciated.

Jason continues to improve. I haven't talked to him yet today. Late yesterday they were getting ready to transfer him to Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital, where he will have an estimated 3 weeks of physical therapy.

Depending on how that goes, the doctors will decide if he needs to go to a rehab facility to continue the physical therapy, or if he can do it at home.

Thanks again for all your prayers and good thoughts.

Thanks Bernie and Bohiker for your prayers and thoughts.

I talked with Jason yesterday. He was settled in at Sentara Virginia Beach General Hospital and had had his first sessions of physical and occupational therapy. He's on solid food, but a restricted diet. His attitude is very positive - he is definitely not sweating the small stuff!

Again, thank all of you for your prayers and positive thoughts. I know they have helped. Please continue to keep Jason and everyone caring for him in your thoughts. I appreciate it to the moon and beyond.
