He's home and continues doing well...

Mon Jan 31, 2011, 8:12 AM


I spent the entire day, yesterday, with my Father at the hospital.  His routine doctor's exam (unrelated to his exams regarding his broken arm, which has been healing fantastically) turned into discovering an aryhtmia in his heart so he was admitted right away (though it wasn't anything immediately life threatening).  So far the news hasn't been mortally grave or horribly alarming , however it's serious enough to warrent observation and a battery of testing. It's still too early to say how it might go but my hope is, what I'm gathering as somewhat on the positive side will be how it goes.  They more or less said this is treatable and he should be OK, so we'll see.  He was in good spirits overall, though not wanting to be there naturally. I'll be heading back today of course keeping him company. Please, by all means send best wishes, prayers, or whatever positive vibes are your inclination.

Thanks for reading and the support always.

Update: Sat Jan 29

I'm happy to report my Father is doing really well and the arrhythmia isn't life threatening or as serious as it was first diagnosed (he wasn't in any pain or discomfort, what so ever, when we admitted him to emergency, nor has he been in any before admitting. Only the arm pain).  It was good he was admitted to ensure it doesn't get serious but, overall, he's doing really good and the condition is treatable.  The testing is over and he's just in observation likely heading home in the next day or so.  Thank you to everyone who expressed kind wishes, we really appreciate it.  I have no idea how much that kinda thing helps but it certainly can't hurt.

Update: Mon Jan 31

My Father was discharged from the hospital, yesterday, and is doing very well so far.  I expect more doctors visits but the situation doesn't appear life threatening and he's well enough to be home.  Gonna have a busy few days though, much to take care of and catch up on.

Thank you all immensely for the kind words, well wishes, and comments.  We really do appreciate it.

Best!

Aye, very much so, very much so. Can't tank everyone enough for the support though, somehow I think it does help.

Well, it's good to hear that he's doing well. I'm sure the arm and arrhythmia (sp?) are just going to be minor obstacles, really. But still, I wish you and your father the best!
