Yesterday, Ben called his Gramma Arlene to thank her for the birthday card she sent him. Her phone rang unanswered- which is unusual since she has both call waiting and an answering machine.
A short while later, she called back. My DH's brother Bob is in the hospital. He went in during the night Monday night/ early Tuesday with chest pains. After learning he is not in immediate danger, the hospital began to run tests. Tom found out last night that Bob had not gone 'immediately' to the hospital with his chest pains... but had been having them for a WEEK!

The tests so far are inconclusive. The enzyme they test for after heart attacks is 'borderline', so they cannot say if he DID, or did NOT have a myocardial infarction. They did a stress test today, but decided to keep him another day and do catheterization dye tests tomorrow.

All prayers for his swift recovery are appreciated.

Today is the 11th anniversary of Tom and Bob's dad's death- so the timing of this hospitalization really has everyone freaked out.
