Following up to my journal yesterday.
Everything is good.
My father is fine. His arteries are fine and dandy. The stress test was a false positive. His blood pressure is mildly high and his aortic valve has some calcification (but looks to be opening and closing fine). So the doc will reccommend to the gp that he get an ecocardiogram.
It was a long day. Got to the hospital at 9am for my mother's appointment. (All is well with her too. Her mri and cat scan follow up to her kidney operation last year was all clear as were all her other tests this month. Yay!) Then my father got the time wrong for his test. He said he was supposed to be there at 11:00 but he didn't need to be there until 12:30 for a 1:30 test. BUT - he didn't get the test until 3:30. Ugh. Alot of waiting and waiting and not having anything to eat or drink (Dad couldn't and we didn't want to eat or drink infront of him). It was over in 1/2 hour (no time to eat or drink lol) and then we had to wait until 6:15 before they would let him go.
Finally home and fed (Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich, fries and a frosty yum!) and all is well.
Thanks for all the good thoughts and prayers. Truly the best of all possible outcomes for everything.

Such a relief to hear sis! Now you take it easy and let go of what must have been a stressful time. Just have fun and play for awhile!
Oh Mel, I'm SO glad everything is okay with both your Mom and Dad......you all must be so relieved.
