Josh, Glad they caught it now so something can be done. We have a friend who was recently diagnosed with a bad heart valve at the back of her heart. They went down the throat to do the repair. It is truly amazing what they can do and they just keep improving. Hopefully your Dad will be able to come home soon and the two of you can once again enjoy the hobby you enjoy. Keep us posted.

Sorry to hear of your Dads troubles Josh, but it is amazing what can be done now with heart troubles. My stepfather had a stent replaced last week, been in so long it was shifted. We wish your Dad a full speedy recovery.

Josh, Glad to hear he is getting out of ICU. 2 kidney stones! I would not wish that on my worse enemy. I had one in '98 and thought I was going to die. Tell your dad I feel for him. I have a buddy who had so many of them that we teased him that when he peed it was like a machine gun going off. :) He is now on the mend as well.

As tractorman said at least now they know what they are dealing with and get him on the mend.

The ONLY time I've ever seen my Dad knocked off his feet (and Dad is TOUGH!)was when he got kidney stones. He had them twice. Glad it wasn't a heart attack or similar. They will get your Dad fixed up in no time.

Hey guys they decide too keep icu for a little longer.The heart attack is what saved his life.The infection would have killed him a day or to.There is a kidney stone in the urea tube.They are going to put a stint in the urea tube tonite. To get the infection out first.Then in 2 to 3 weeks they will go in a take the kidney stone out.He is having no pain from the kidney stones.They going to do the heart cath on monday.Thanks for all the support.Josh :thumbs:
