My Dad, heart update

My Dad got a call yesterday (Thursday) morning from the heart specialist telling him he had an appt today, (Friday) at 8:30am.They wanted to admit him for IV medication to reduce his fluid build up, and to run tests. Dad, of course, hates hospitals and asked if the tests would be run on the weekend, when no was the answer he opted for the new pills over the weekend and a check in on Monday. If the pills haven't worked he will be admitted Monday. He has a lot of fluid on his heart and lungs and possible blockage. If he has a blockage they said he would be sent to Saint John hospital which is about 5 hours from home in the southern part of the Province.
