Some kind of “airborne, mysterious” virus entered my dad’s system and THAT was what pushed his blood pressure and heart rate up–not a stroke or a heart attack. I suppose it’s not actually great news when doctors use the word “mystery” but in truth, the antibiotics pushed everything back down along with a little bit of lopressa (sp?).
I saw him yesterday and he looked great and in good spirits. He underwent a stress test today and passed that with flying colors. They are waiting on some blood work but it looks like he will return home tomorrow.
Thanks to all for the prayers and especially to fellow blogger Gashwin who knows all too well the feelings of fear I went through. Please pray for his family as they lost their father last year.
