Update on Dad

After being bored in the hospital for several days, he was released. He has a similar problem to what Vice President Cheney has and is going to have the same treatment, in that they are going to shock his heart to try and restore a regular heartbeat. It's an hour and half procedure that is apparently pretty common. I'm taking him to have this done on Thursday.

Glad they pin pointed the problem and they have a treatment lined up to help. I know it sounds a little scary but hang in there Meari. You and your Dad will be in my prayers Thursday.

DH has had this done twice 7 years ago and even though it sounds scary, it's not bad. Fortunately he's on medication that's regulating his heartbeat now and hasn't been out of rhythm since then...at least not continuously out of rhythm.

DH is an oddity with this, as he's only 33 years old. No one can figure out why he's having an "old man" heart condition at a young age.

Prayers for your dad that he goes through this smoothly.
