I posted the story on the UC forum but my husband had a massive heart attack today. He is stable in the heart department now (his entire right side of the heart was clogged) but he is in a coma and they don't know the extent of any damage to the brain. They lowered his body temperature and had to put him on a paralyzing drug because he was shivering so much from the ice bags and blanket that it was keeping his temperature up. They will do a EEG and a CT scan hopefully tomorrow but they have to wait until he is off the powerful drug.
Please keep Larry in your prayers and ask anyone you know to keep him in theirs.
