Please pray for my Dad

Recommended Posts

Heather i'm so sorry.


Something just like that happened to my uncle a few weeks ago. It wasnt a heart attack. They think it was stress related and are now saying it's probably an ulcer. they still are doing tests on him. I hope it's nothing serious with your dad either. But he's in the hospital where people can take proper care of him which is a good thing.

Heather I am sorry you and your family are going through this. You are all in our prayers. Hopefully it is nothing serious and since your mom is a nurse got him to the hospital and all will be fine. Keep us posted.

Ladies, thank you so much for praying for my Dad.


Here's an update:

I went to go and visit him last night in the hospital. My Mom said that he has an irregular heart beat and they have him on medication to bring it to normal. They think what happened yesterday morning was that his heartbeat dipped down into the low 30s and that is what caused his body to react. My Dad said that he couldn't breath, he got all sweaty, and he felt very faint, but he didn't have any pain or tingly arms. Then [and they didn't bother to tell me this yesterday] they called an abulance to come and get him. He seems to being doing better, he wants to go home, especially since there aren't any beds available in the cardiac ward so they have him in a private room in the ER. The Doctor said that he probably has had something like this his whole life, but, because he is getting older, it probably started acting up.


The Doctor said that it was a great thing that he didn't ignore it, that he came in, because it could have been much much worse.


Bigger update:

My sister just called me when I was writing this.


My Dad is going into a procedure where the "zap" the heart in an attempt to get the rythme back to normal. I think it's called cardiac stenosis surgery? My sister [this was the non-nurse sister] didn't know the exact name. So, now we wait.


Is this safe? I was feeling okay, but now, the worrying has started again.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
