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.

I'm glad they were able to do stents instead of having to redo the bypass. And frankly, glad that they checked out all of this; sounds like he has competent doctors.

Yeah, I'm rather surprised at how good they are, given that Montana doesn't really have the population or wealth to support the number of physicians that would be reasonable.

Ack! I hope it goes well.
