    My Dad is in the hospital.

    He is in good spirits but he is not in good health. I know there isn't much I can do, but wait at this time. I spent the evening at the hospital. The doctors and nurses are treating him well. I am trying to stay positive, but it's hard when his heart is in such bad shape
