          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.

            Oh Heather, how very scary. Certainly I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Hopefully it's a minor issue. Keep us updated on his condition!

                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.
