So, today I was awoken by my landlord banging down my door. She said my mom was on the phone and was unable to get ahold of me. I pick up the phone and learn that my dad's had a heart attack and has been admitted to St. Anthony's Hospital, which is about 15 minutes away. So, I stumble out of bed and get there as quick as I can (with Scott's assistance in locating clothes.)
My Dad is stable right now, but still on the Cardiac ICU floor, so here's hoping he'll continue doing as well as he is. Kind of freaky for me because as much as my parents and I don't get along - this is the first time I've had to face their mortality.
My Dad is mostly worried with what excuse he can give his employer (he's an attorney) that won't impact him getting passed over for various leadership advancements... I put a few stupid movies on his iPhone for him and brought that to him earlier...
I'll update more tomorrow.
