    Good News in the Midwest



    As y'all remember, my wife had a wee complication with H1N1. It led to viral pneumonia, respiratory arrest and a small heart attack a few weeks ago that resulted in me havig to perform CPR. She spent 6 days in the CCU. She just had her Angiogram today, and the results were excellent. There is no Ischemia of the heart muscle, the inactive sectors of her heart have reactivated, and there are no blockages. She has coronary arteries abut the size of NY City Water Mains.

    Her cardiac output fraction is up to 48% from just under 24%. The norm is*50-55%. I feel like a 10 ton weight has been lifted off of me!

    Wow, that H1N1 virus can pack a punch. I didn't realize you guys had gone through such a scary time recently. Glad your wife is doing better.

    Yes, this was my fear as well. I couldn't bring myself to comment on it in your last thread.

    This is wondrous news. Thanks for sharing it!

    Trust me, I was pretty scared over the last 3 weeks. I knew how bad that output was, less than half the norm.
