A Minor Emergency

I will be away for a few days. My dad had an episode that the doctor's have labeled an arrthythmia. I know it isn't life threatening at this point, but it didn't have to be to freak me out.

Sorry, I haven't even been able to catch up with all my regular reads.


  • Wishing him well (and you too). I'd be freaked out too, regardless of what the docs told me.

  • Scary. If it's not such a big deal, then why can't they give it a less scary name? Arrthythmia. That sounds abnormal. They can't call it that and then be all, "But don't worry about it, M'kay? It's no big deal!" Why not something less alarming? I mean, really. Sending out good vibes...

  • Bets wishes to your Dad. I always seem to live too far away when my Dad has these kinds of episodes. I'm glad you are able to go. The phone just isn't the same. Happy thoughts!

  • I freak out when anything happens to a family member, so I can relate. Thinking good thoughts for your dad and your family. *hug*

  • And if the phone call that told you about it came in the middle of the night...well...that's even more upsetting. Here's hoping everything goes well for you and for your dad.

  • I'll second Brandi to say that that arrythmia sounds way too scary. I think it should be called flutters or chortles, which both make me think of marshmallows.

    I know what it's like to worry about a parent, and hope all goes well.

  • I developed a heart arrhythmia out of the blue about five years ago. It took a while to get it diagnosed because it was intermittent. When I finally got a diagnosis, my cardiologist told me that I had a condition normally seen in men over 60 with a history of cardiac problems. Damn, if I'm going to be exceptional, why can't it be in a POSITIVE way.

  • Oh, no. I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it goes well and that he's fully recovered soon.
