Welcome, welcome, Jan!! I'm in your age range (shhh! Don't tell anyone!) ;), married and have only furkids. I have coronary heart disease, Hypertension, plus Spinal Stenosis. I am also disabled and one of those people who live on a fixed income. I've had 2 heart caths and a stent placement in my right groin. So far, I'm doing okay. And though I'm not from Texas, I also say y'all! :)


I am really anxious to learn how your heart cath went and the stent placement, as well. We certainly will have something in common! Let us know how you're doing and how everything went as soon as possible.


Btw, there is usually someone here on the board almost everyday. I try to be, but I usually spend my weekends catching up on housework, laundry, etc.


With Heart Hugs, Geri
