    Default Dad in the hospital


    0 Not allowed!
    He had some dizzy spells at work this morning. He decided he wanted to go to the ER, but that he couldn't see to drive himself. The paramedics said his blood pressure was really high, which is what was causing him to be so dizzy. Besides the blood presure, the tests that he's had done have all come out fine. THe doctor suggested that he stay so they could do a few more tests just to be 100%. He's recently had to change his diet ue to high cholesterol, so they wanted to run a stress test to check for any blockage. They thought they would be able to get it done today, but they weren't able to. They don't do them on Sundays, so now he's stuck there until at least Monday.
    Everything happens for a reason.

    I'll let you all know more when I do. Right now, he's just lying in a hospital bed so bored that he's sleeping. Just waiting for Monday to come.

    Can he have a laptop or something?

    Does he get to watch football tomorrow?

    I told him to ask, and that I would bring him my laptop. He wasn't going to worry about it. A friend of his is going to visit him tomorrow. They're hoping to watch football. Don't know how th guy in the other bed will feel.

    Some hospitals won't let patients watch things that will get their heart rate elevated.

    Good luck Monday!

    Hope he gets to come home then!
