Update on My Dad

Monday morning we found out that my dad had a mild heart attack.; it wasn't even severe enough to show up on the EKGs that they did. Yesterday they went in and looked at the blockages and there are several. The one causing him pain is like 99% blocked but his heart has already found a way to work around it. They were talking about possibly needing to do a bypass, but his doctor and the surgeon feel like this can be controlled and hopefully reversed.

My dad keeps promising me that he will be ok and that he will do whatever needs to be done to keep him around. The mantra that keeps going through my head is that he has never lied to me before; if he says he will be alright, he will be.

I am so impressed with my mom. This is going to sound bad, but she and my dad are fairly co-dependant. I didn't know how she was going to handle all of this stress, but she is doing well. I, however, am not doing as well as she is. I cry all the time and I have never been more scared.

I want to say thank you to all of our friends and family that have been surrounding us though all this. Mom and Dad's pastor and her husband have been around to offer their support and knowledge, my aunt and uncle have visited and kept us company and moved the trailer for my mom, my Bestie came up yesterday, Aunt Jeff came and hung out, a few guys Dad works with came and he seemed really happy to see them, and a close family friend that is like another one of my dads came up and chatted for awhile. Thank you so much everyone. It's great that we have so much support for you guys. Also a huge thank you to everyone that has told us to let them know what we need; I know you would all do anything we needed you to.

I love you all.
