My Sweet Dad!!!!


So last night Boyd and I were out to dinner and then went to Sam's club and on the way home we got a call that the Paramedics were at my parents home, so we hurried over there to find that my dad was not feeling good and experiencing some chest pain and nausea, My sweet mom was so calm and they were working on my dad, and then one by one each family member showed up at there house, they took him to Desert Banner and called his Dr. my dad has a great Dr. and he was not on call and was home enjoying pictures of his son's trip that he recently got home and got the call that Mr. Prince was in the ER he told his son that the picture would have to wait that he knew he had to get to the hospital to see this man, the Dr. preceded to tell us that he knew he had to be there to do a proceedur on dad and that if the dr that was on call had worked on my dad that he would of not known exactly were the blockage was cause my dad has some funky arteries and they would of not gone far enough, so this dr came in and did the procedure and put a stint in my dad's main artery, he said it was 99% percent blocked and that he did have a heart attack at home but it did not do any major damage to his heart, he then told us that if we would of waited my dad would of had a major heart attack and would of not been with us today, I want to thank Dr. Atcar for knowing my dad's heart and for coming in to help him, my dad had a wonderful blessing and we knew that he was being watched over and it was not his time to go, he is the ICU as of now and will be moved to a room hopefully tomorrow, I am so thankful for prayer and thankful that my dad is still here with us today, he is the sweetest man you will ever know who loves his family and my mom very much, his children were all there minus my oldest sister who lives in Utah, it was great to have family there and to know how close we are all.. we love you Dad and know that you are still needed here to be with your family....
