News from Larry and Nancy Lee
Larry and I spoke at length on the phone this morning, and his spirits are fantastic. With Larry’s approval I wish to share what is going on right now, and here is part of one of his emails to me…
My courage has been strong from the start. You should have been there with the two ambulance teams. Somebody suggested we should throw a party so I could feel better! It's been a wild ride. The flat line experience was interesting to say the least. But my stay in the hospital was full of laughs and good times. Even on the angiogram table the staff and I were laughing ourselves silly. I hate to see people worry. So hope you relax soon.
It isn't that I don't know the risks, but rather that I know the outcome. I have made peace with God and trust he'll do what's right.
Larry was on his way back from Washington to Arizona on I-5, when he had his heart attack. He managed to reach a prior neighbour who then called the ambulance and got him to the hospital.
At this point in time, Larry and his wife are in Portland and are trying to return to Phoenix today if possible. Friends offered to drive his vehicle back to Arizona. He’s told the airlines what is going on because he may need oxygen, and they have honored to have it available if it is needed. He makes me laugh - he said, his only worry was they plop him in Las Vegas before he gets home! (Since when is that a bad thing?)
Once home, his friend who is a doctor, is already picking out a surgeon for his operation which is likely to be a quad bypass, as Larry has other trouble spots on his heart that can be fixed while in there. His work is supportive and will make sure he has the recovery time needed.
So it looks to me that our Larry has the best lady and "Man" right next to him and in his heart, along with all of our prayers, so I think we can assume all is well and taken care of. Keep him in your prayers though. I will try to keep you informed, as I know anything new
God be with you Larry and Nancy Lee.
I think we need a new t.v. show after this called, "Everyone Loves Larry."
