I got news tuesday night that my dad was taken to the hospital. He went through some tests yesterday and they found that he has a leaky valve in his heart and an enlarged aorta. They did a catherization this morning and so far all i know is that he made it out of surgery. Still waiting on the results. It really sucks to be 1000 miles away from all this! (they live in AL and I am in NM) His Dr. put him on a strict diet since he is grossly overweight which is just making things worse. I could really use some BW vibes/prayers that he is better soon. The Dr's are worried about replacing the valve since they only last about 14-15 yrs and that would mean my dad would be in his early 70's when he would need a replacement. *sigh* So, our family could really use the vibes!
