Dad called me about 3:00 this afternoon and told me he had EMS on the way. He was having some rapid heart rates along with high blood pressure. EMS checked him out and everything looked normal. I took him to the emergency room anyway. They ran blood work and an EKG. Everything looked kosher but I know that he has been feeling puny for the last week and that is one sign of heart problems. He is going to see the cardiologist Tuesday. They will put him on an events monitor and try and catch one of the episodes so they can better diagnose the problem. He had by-pass surgery about 14 years ago and this really fucking scares me. Hopefully they can nip this shit in the bud! With the 1 year anniversary of mom dying coming up next Saturday I am a nervous wreck about dad. If I lost him I would not know what to do.
