We had to bring Dad into the ER last night at 9 PM. I got a call from my sister and rushed down to the hospital. He couldn't breath and his feet and legs were very swollen. They diagnosed him with congestive heart failure. My dad is 84 (he was in his 40's when I was born) and he told them that if his heart stops, he does not want to be brought back and no life sustaining measures are to be taken. At about 1 AM they got him into the Critical Care Unit. I got home around 1:15. At 6 AM I called the CCU and they said he had a good night and by the time I got to the hospital this morning they had him in a regular room. He looked a lot better, but I would appreciate your prayers. I do not want to loose my Dad too. My Mom died when I was 21.
