    well guys I just wanted to let you know that I might be on and off for a bit the next few days...my dad has been really sick for about a week and so this morning they took him into the doctor...his blood pressure was stupid high (which it normally is w/ him) and he had broncitus (sp?)...
    but the kicker is that he aparently had a heart attack...so I guess the broncitus is a blessing in disguise b/c he wen't in for that but they ended up finding that he had damage to his heart...and about the heart attack.

    So he is being held at the hospital w/ a patch thingy (I think they said nitrogen...something like that) that is supposed to stop another heart attack b/c w/ the condition he is in they think that he might have had another one back to back....soooooo
    iono...I might be gone for a bit at the hospital so if you are the prayin' type...I guess this would be the time :)

    I just got back from the hospital...aparently they don't have an open room but they moved him into a different section...like a fancy waiting room that patients go after they are stable from the emergency room but before they have an available room in the main hospital....
    So I took him the latest issue of 4 wheeler, diesel power, Truckin', NASCAR news, etc. so he should be set for tonight :)

    uhhh other than that iono...he has a stress test tomorrow sometime to see what his heart does when he is doing intense physical activity so we'll see how that goes. Oh and they gave him medicine for his broncitus and blood pressure so he isn't coughing anymore and his blood pressure is dropping.

    I wish I could but they just finished doing a big addition to the hospital which included a new emergency room...so the old emergency room was converted over into this fancy 20 room wing that houses people like him who don't have a room yet....the only problem is there are no chairs or places for people to sit in these rooms b/c they are supposed to be temporary. :)
    But I'll go see him tomorrow after school...my boss called me tonight and said not to worry about it...he said do w/e I need to do.

    Sorry to hear about your dad. Hope they caught it in time.

    It sounds like he might go to the 'cath. lab' soon. That's where they perform angioplasty to open the coronary vessel(s).

    In regards to the patch: It's nitro paste with a 'patch' paper that they put on the chest so that the patient absorbs it through the skin. It opens the blood vessels to allow better flow, but it can cause a painful headache :( !

    I'll keep your family in our prayers.

    we just got back from the hospital...his stress test was supposed to be at 8:00 this morning but it was pushed back to 1:00 (its 1:30 and they still haven't come) so he is getting a little frustrated...mostly b/c he can't eat or drink until the test is done.
