Been a pretty tough week.

My dad has a history of heart problems. Despite being only 54, he's had 3 heart attacks, an open heart surgery and two operations for stents. He takes care of himself, works out daily, but he's dealt with heart issues since he was 30 when he took his first heart attack.

Well today, he was scheduled for an eckocardiogram and his blood pressure dropped and got real dizzy and sweaty. They took him to the ER, and then transferred him to the nearby hospital where his cardiologist is.

He's scheduled for a cathorization in the morning. Hopefully it all goes well and he doesn't need open heart surgery again. But he's really nervous about it and I just want to see things finally go right for him.

My mom also has been battling stomach cancer the last few years and she told me yesterday that she has some new tumors on her hip.

Things just are kicking my ass this week.

If you would be so inclined, please send up some prayers/good thoughts/ sacrificial lambs for my parents and that hopefully they can make a recovery.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks everyone.

Pops is scheduled to start his test little after 12.

Today, I woke up with a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotic I've been taking. My whole body feels like it's on fire and my skin is dried out.

Just a lovely week.

Thanks everyone for the prayers and well wishes.

Dad had his cath done today. They found 3 blockages that they will be able to open with a stent or another device. Not real sure. His cardiologist said that he had to review his old films.

He said he should be fine after the procedure so here's hoping everything goes smoothly on Friday.

Thanks again. Means a lot.

Missed this Bad Guy, some good vibes on the way. My old man is getting up there too and it's not ****ing fun. If the old man is anything like you he's a hard nose, help him use that.

02-23-2012, 09:47 AM
Wow. I missed this too. Sorry to hear about all this. I'm glad your dad is being taken care of before things could have gone bad. My thoughts and well wishes to you and your parents.
