My mom found my dad lying on floor unconscious. She took him to ER b/c she thought he had a heart attack. The results of EKG showed it wasnt because he was opposite of what it needed to look like so theyre doing a catscan on his aorta. he is on oxygen and his heart rate, bp and oxygen levels are normal. The docs arent sure what it is, but are assuming it is with his aorta which is why they're doing a cat scan to see that. has this happened to anyone? I know it's serious because the aorta is a major part of your heart, but is it super life threatening???
A little info on him is that hes 47, 5'11, about 145 lbs, smoker (1/2 pack a day) occassional wine drinker, eats healthy for the most part.
It worries me because he does smoke a lot so i have a feeling it is with his lungs....praying its not lung cancer though....
so please keep my dad in your prayers. i am really worried about him. =(
