Mom called earlier to say that Dad had chest pain and they went to the Emergency Room.  The pain disappeared once they got there, and the tests have been showing nothing wrong, but they admitted him and are keeping him overnight due to his age.  He’s 79.

Of course, I know that if the tests are coming back good and the pain is gone, things are really likely to turn out fine, but of course, I still worry.

I’ll be going to see him after work and I’ll drive Mom home.  Then I imagine I’ll take her back in the morning before I come back to work.  We should know more by then.

    Thanks, SN and Kerro! He’s doing really well and should be going home today, after his stress test. His doctor came in last night while I was there. He has a very good doctor. It isn’t looking like it’s his heart, which is a very good thing. I will post here with any updates if anything changes.

    Thank you again to everyone who commented or emailed with good wishes for my dad. He went home on the 22nd and is feeling great. All tests ruled out any heart-related trouble, and he’s going through testing now to see if this was related to his Barrett’s Esophagus. We are all praying that he doesn’t have esophageal adenocarcinoma. I am taking as a good sign the fact that he has had no further symptoms since going to the hospital.
