Can't Turn My Back For One Minute....

It's not unusual to call my dad and get his voicemail. He's a busy guy. Picking stuff up, dropping stuff off, gassing up, sleeping. Any number of reasons to not get through but he's always very good about getting back to us ASAP. I mean, what else does he have to do in his downtime? What is unusual is almost 4 straight days of going straight to voicemail. Of course, even this can be explained if he forgets or breaks his charger. I mean, two weeks is kind of a long time. So we put off calling the central office as long as we could. Were gonna wait 'til Monday since he's supposed to be home this weekend and, well, it's not unusual for Schneider to screw up and delay his return. But as I lay myself down this morning I just had a feeling. Not "OMG something really bad has happened" feeling but a "It might be a good idea to check" feeling, so I told my mom to go ahead and call. I'm glad I did.

Tuesday or Wednesday (sometime in the middle of the night) he started having chest pains. Again, not something completely abnormal. Except this time they wouldn't go away. So he called 911 and they rushed him to the nearest hospital where he required 2 angioplasties. As of this moment he's still in the hospital. He's still got his sense of humor so he's definitely going to be okay. Complaining about the eggs and sharing funny stories. Like the nurse that came in yesterday and said "I'm here to give you your lecture about smoking . . . . cut it out." lol He should be discharged today. He doesn't know if they're going to let him drive or not so I may or may not be making a trip up to Tennessee tonight. Fun. lol I made sure to let him know that if that's the case I will come and get him, no problems on my end. It's only a 10 hour drive. I could do that easy. If I get my ass back to bed. My mom called and I was able to get his mom's phone number off the 'net ("Lotta cool stuff out there on that internet") so she's going to call her so she can talk to her baby. lol Should be all good on my end 'til he calls. So, I'm off!
