He had it on Thursday, but didn't go to the hospital until Friday, when the chest pain got severe. He didn't even realize he'd had one. His doctor said it was a major one, and it could've killed him. They did an emergency cath, and found out he had an artery that was 100% blocked, and another that was 70% blocked. They inserted 3 stints, and he could be going home Tuesday. My dad is an active sort of person, but he will have to rest for a good awhile. He's already talking about going golfing, but that's out for a while while he recovers. He's 82 years old, and he needs to lose a bit of weight by altering his diet. Anyway, he scared me this time, but after he rests up for several days, he should be able to do limited activity. There WAS some damage to his heart, but he's a tough man, so I think he'll pull through OK. Wish my dad the best, my friends. I would appreciate your thoughts & prayers for him.
