Grandpop's back in the hospital.......

He was ill on Father's Day and again on Monday. Tuesday was his regular dialysis day, and his heart rate dropped during dialysis. He was rushed to the hospital, where he went into cardiac arrest twice. Grandpop's heart rate went up, so the doctors inserted a pacemaker, but before that, he went into cardiac arrest twice again! Then they found some blockage in a small artery and performed an angioplasty. Whew!

Now he's in ICU sedated and resting comfortably. More tests will be ran to find out why Grandpop's heart rate is so irratic.

Depending on how these tests go, I'm probably heading back to Chicago within the next few days. He was doing very well when I visited them a few weeks ago. Please keep him and our family in your prayers. He's gone through so much since last July!

Aww Shelly, I am praying for him. My goodness girl, sometimes it all seems like too much, I know. I will be praying for the rest of your family as well. The stress is hard on everyone. Rest in His arms sweetie! God Bless & Hugs ~Karen
