Changed Saturday

Everything changed at 7:10 this morning. My brother-in-law called then and said, "Margie, can you come over?" I said I'd be right over and put Slinky in the garage and went over to his house.

He was sitting in his recliner looking kind of wane. He had been having chest pains for an hour and now his chin and jaw were hurting. I suggested we go to the emergency room and he didn't argue with me. I dropped him off at the door there and parked the car.

I got him checked in while they started an IV treatment. He immediately brighten up. His heart rate was 120 and he was having atrial fibulation. His body corrected that right away. They entered him into the hospital for an overnight stay. I stayed all day and came home about 5:30. I will go back in the morning at 7:00 so I can be there when the doctor makes rounds. If he doesn't have another episode tonight, they will release him in the morning. They will give him a different blood pressure med with an ingredient to prevent the fibulation.

I came home, took a bath and am watching TV. My daughter just called and checked on him. I brought her up to date.

I will bake my cookies in the morning before I go to the hospital.

I was glad too. I asked him to keep his cell phone next to his bed. He has no bedside phone.
