Dad's spending the night at the hospital tonight. :-(

He had some chest pain this morning, and his heartbeat was irregular so he went to the ER. The pain went away after they gave him nitroglycerine & he's been fine since. So far the bloodwork hasn't shown that it was a heart attack & they'll draw more blood later tonight and tomorrow he gets to do a stress test.

I've been told not to worry and that he's fine. He seemed ok when me & Rick went to visit. As long as the stress test goes ok he'll be back at home tomorrow.

The whiteboard in dad's room had a spot that said "Today's Goals" but there wasn't anything written there. I fixed it:

He's ok. His potassium level was low, which can cause an irregular heartbeat. Weird, but easily fixed.

(relatively) Good news about the low potassium. I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing well!
