I just found out my Dad has been rushed in to hospital with chest pains - suspected angina, possible small heart attack...

He retired a couple of months back, and so far has been to Vegas twice, and was at a bull run in Spain last week. He probably just needs a bloody rest.

I'll update when I get updates...

UPDATE
thanks for the comments guys....

he's not doin great at the minute, he had a fairly major heart attack to start with, and has had a few minor ones over the last couple of days. I spoke to my Mum just now, and she says he's having a few chest pains every hour or so, docs unsure as to what exactly to do (?!) they're doing more tests on Friday, and should know more then.

I'm going to the hospital on Friday, to kick his ass for makin me worry.

2nd UPDATE
he had a triple bypass on monday, op went well, but since then his pancreas has swollen, and he is not doing as well as the others who had the same op on the same day. He's still in the intensive care unit, he's conscious most of the time, they have to keep sedating him every few hours for some reason, and he's on regular morphine doses.

I spoke to my mum earlier and she sounded worried for the first time over this. Which is worrying, as my mum does not usually worry, there's nothing I can do to fix it, or prevent it getting worse, (other than go to see him, which I'm doing tomorrow), so I'll not worry, just trust the docs are doin their best, and things sort themselves out positively on all counts.

Oh hey, and Carol's 2 weeks away from giving birth.... I'm not worrying about that either. I'm just gonna make sure there's clean towels, and keep the maternity and ambulance phone numbers on speed dial. There' nothing more I can do, so there's no point worrying.

oooh.... KV-2's are out, you say..... ?

time for a relaxing bit of tank destroying....

I suspect you're right, he's just taking a break. What's next, gladiator school?

Sending out the positive vibes....

Sounds like the doctors are on top of things to me. Hope your dad is better soon, a new grandchild will no doubt perk him right up.
