just got off the phone with him. he was just released from the hospital (!!!!!!) with a bundle of meds to regulate his heart and take care of the ulcers they found in his esophagus (which caused the bloody puke) a few weeks rest and they'll be on their way back east again. the angioplasty surgery will most likely take place in a few months to clear the two blockages they found.
i told dad it'll be nothing but carrots and grass from now on...daughter's orders.
