Update on my dad (GreenLantern for DU oldsters)
As I mentioned before he's been in and out of the ER with chest pains and shortness of breath all week.

These blood tests came back negative for a recent heart attack, but the ekg is off and the stress test showed his heart working at roughly 50% capacity and there seems to be some damage. So we now know it is heart related but do not know the full extent. He will be in our small local hospital ICU for two days, then get moved to the bigger hospital in Bangor for more tests. Sounds like a heart catheter will be involved.

Please continue with your good vibes and prayers. My kids are already down to just two grandparents. We'd like to keep the remaining ones around for a long time.

Thanks! :hug:

12. Good vibes being sent.
Doctors can do wonders with these conditions if the diagnosis comes in time. It looks like it is in time with your dad since no heart attack has been detected.

15. Thinking positive thoughts for you and your father.
I'm hoping that in Bangor they can confirm or refine the diagnosis and get on with the fixing.
