Daddy Update

Thank you SO much for all the prayers, good thoughts, and energy you sent.

Daddy doesn’t seem to have had a heart attack, but it’s likely there’s some kind of blockage. He refused to be admitted—against all advice, pleading from all of us, etc.

He goes back in the morning for a fasting cholesterol test and a stress test. I’m hoping they figure out what’s wrong.

He has a two-pack-a-day cigarette habit. He’s “only” been smoking since he was seven years old.

I left when my brother (the doctor) and his wife arrived—there were too many visitors at that point, and I knew Matt would be more likely to talk sense into Daddy than I would.

Matt even called a cardiologist friend (Matt’s in orthopedics). His friend said that he has never known of a patient with those symptoms and risk factors, at that age, being released.

At least Matt will be in the house tonight if anything does happen.
