    I pray that an extra measure of God's grace and mercy be upon you this day.
    Waiting to hear how it went.

    My thoughts are for you knowing all is in the best of hands.
    I have walked in the same shoes. You will probably not remember anything except maybe the nurse shaving your privates. I thought it was over in 5 minutes but I was told it was actually hour and a half.

    Well, I just got home and everything went all right. He thought he would have to put just one stint in, but he ended up putting in six. He said I was the worst case he had seen in a long time. I'm just glad it's over. Thanks y'all for the prayers and get wells. It really means a lot to me! I need all the prayers I can get! Lol

    We were thinking it was your heart. Thanks for clarifying.
    Still, very serious. Will continue to pray for a speedy recovery.
    If memory serves me correctly, the groin is a pretty sensitive area.
    I had a heart cath. about 30 years ago. I sometimes still get a hot knife sensation in that upper leg area from time to time. Nerves are funny that way.
    Get well soon my friend. Prayers sent.

    Well when you get a hole punched in your groin and the muscle and body tissues get stretched and bruised
    it can be quite uncomfortable for awhile. Start noticing the positive changes and the others will be gone for some reason.
    In a few weeks at most you will have most hurts feeling much better.
