This week is just gets worse and worse *update*

After I left here (my moms house, to use the computer) yesterday, I went home and I got a phone call from my mom saying I needed to get back to her house NOW because my dad was having a heart attack. He is only 50, and he had a massive heart attack. He is in the hospital now, still in the CCU. They had to go in and put a stint in one of his arteries. I have never been so scared in all my life. We hope they will let him come home in a few days. Keep him in your prayers for me.

So sorry to hear that - what terrible news. We will have him and your family in our prayers, Meredith.

The good news is that cardiac problems can often be very successfully treated, and a heart attack today is not like it was even 15 years ago. They have drugs that can prevent damage, and lots of technology availabe, so hopefully he will be home soon. We wish him all the best!
