teh sickness

Surprise! Your father is in the hospital!

Got a call yesterday that my father was in the hospital in Great Falls. He had a bladder infection (side effect of prostate issues that came along last year; he was 73-ish so that was probably expected) that stressed his heart. He had a quadruple-bypass ten years ago, so it's probably due for the regular valve-and-ring anyway.

So they put in two stents this morning. He was recovering, but still under anaesthesia, when I called to see how things were going. All was doing fairly well.

ETA: All is doing well. He's going home as soon as they get done with the discharge papers.
