Another late night phone call

Just once I want someone to call me
late at night and say: we have really good news...
but it doesn't happen that way does it?

I received another phone call from my mother last night
at 11:30 pm and she told me they had taken my father
to the hospital again by EMS .
He was having severe breathing problems.

When we arrived at the hospital an EMT told us that
he given them quite a scare. They had to radio ahead
and meet someone part way and get them on board
to administer meds to him.

His breathing appeared very labored and he
told me it was much better than it had been.
I can't imagine.

From the ER doctor we heard words like:

congestive heart failure

fluid on the lungs

you need to get
reacquainted with your heart doctor

We will find out what today brings.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Blessings~
