Here is an update on Gail’s dad.  He saw the doctor yesterday and he told the doctor he was still having pain.  The doctor wants to try him on another kind of nitroglycerin until Monday to ease the angina pain.  They can’t take an EKG because it would come back perfect since he has a pacemaker.  Since the doctor started him on lasix (anti-water pill), he has lost about 10 pounds of water on his lungs and around his heart.  He will continue to take that.  He has had to stop the blood thinners for 4 days before the catheter so is having to eat only certain foods that will help him during this time.  He will go to the hospital at 6:30am Monday for the cath.  He won’t be able to roll over for 6 hours after the procedure so he won’t be home until our night time, if all goes well.
Thank you for praying for him these past two weeks.  Please continue to pray for him, the doctors, and his wife.
