The world is an odd place

One day everything is humming along, same old same old, and the next you're sitting in the emergency room waiting for your dad's test results.

Yesterday my father had a heart attack. Apparently, an itty bitty one, but a heart attack just the same. After much poking and prodding and scanning and ultrasounding and x-raying, the doctors have determined that he has several arterial blockages and one aortic anurism, that can - they hope - be treated with medications.

So, he's going to be spending another couple of days at the hospital while they monitor the meds. He's already bored, and he's been grumpy since he got there. I think that's a good sign.

Right now, I need to sleep. But before I do, I just want to say, nurses rock.
