Done.
If you are comfortable... you, spouse, family, etc.
If it isn't until Monday the upside is that while likely serious, it isn't emergent.
I'm only a Paramedic. While there are so many things I don't know, I do know that interventional cardiac cath has come a very long way in the past 10 years with increasing success.
With prayers from HM and likely many others (likely including many from the team in the operating room) we've got you covered!

Prayers up
Have had a few of them in the past. They have come a long way through the years. Not a big deal to me any more because I had my heart operation back in 1961 when I was 11 and have been dealing with this stuff more lately.

Heat cath successfully done, 1 artery 50 %, 2 @ 40%, 1 @20%. Means everything is Ok and nothing done now. Breathing problem still not diagnosed, more tests to be done. Thanks for all the supplication, Mark.

mcostello,
If your having trouble breathing, did they check you out for Congestive Heart Failure ? That was my problem twice. Was getting short of breath faster and faster. Then one day had a hard time breathing and went to hospital. They put me on IV diuretics and I lost almost 10lbs of fluids. Now I have to weigh myself every morning and watch for sudden weight gains. But then I have quite a history of heart problems. Had an open heart operation in 1961 when I was 11. Month later, while still in hospital, became the first child to have an implant pacemaker. Broke the wires for that about a month after I got out of the hospital. Then nothing til I turned 50. Kept passing out for a few seconds because my heart wouldn't get a signal to beat for a few beats. Then had new pacemaker put in. Then had to have 3 stents put in.

So I hope everything works ok for you.
