Sad for my Dad-

Seems like there is never a dull moment. My dad has been complaining of excruciating stomach(ish)pain for a while. He sort of put it on the back burner wanting to be there for my Mom as she has been sick. Last week per doctor's orders he had a nuclear stress test. The test showed that he has actually been having heart trouble (minor heart attacks). So looks like what the doctor's guessed in the past was gallbladder pain, was really heart attacks. I feel so bad for him - it's been such a stressful time & I guess it has taken a toll on him. I just hope all goes well tomorrow.
He went to the ER on Sunday (which is so unlike him). They are keeping him until tomorrow for sure. He is having a catheterization operation tomorrow to see where the blockages are & they will go ahead with stints if needed at that time, too. I just want my cute little parents to get better! I don't think he wants anyone to make a big deal of this right now - he is kind of a private person. I just wanted to post this so that maybe some of you will throw some prayers his way.
*My mom is going to the neuro surgeon's office tomorrow to schedule her surgery. I know she'll be glad to get rid of the infection for good!
