My dad had a heart attack last night

I got a call at 1am last night from my dad saying he was having chest pains and needed me to take him to the hospital. When we got to the ER they got him in right away and shortly after we got there they told us it was a heart attack. The doctor said that it was caused by smoking for as long as my dad has. He's 58 and has been smoking since his teens. However my dad has been under a lot of stress the last year or so because of everything going on with my grandparents. It seems like a dream and I still cant believe I almost lost my dad last night. Doctor said he will be okay. He's still in the CCU, but said they might be doing a stepdown and putting him in a regular room and then possibly get to go home the next day.

UPDATE:

My dad is doing better and will be coming home today (monday) he will have to rest for a while, but hopefully he will be back up to 100% in no time.

hopefully a heart attack is enough motivation. sucks some have to learn the hard way, my father finally quit after he had quadruple bypass last june. now hes in the best shape of his life thankfully, and mom just quit last month and doesnt miss those things at all.

tell dadd-0 all of ME.com wishes him to get better soon, and to kick the habit :thumbs2:

Re: My dad had a heart attack last night

Yikes, that really worries me about my dad. Smoked for a long long time, he quit drinking awhile ago and lost a lot of weight. He used to exercise a lot too, but that stopped after awhile. We got puppies now that he loves to walk, so I'm happy he's getting some exercise.

Re: My dad had a heart attack last night

Glad to hear that your dad is going to be alright. Hopeful this will motivate him to quite smoking. I'd been smoking since I was 15, and just quite about 2 mouths ago. I used the patch to help me quite, but you have to have it set in your mind that your going to quite, or they won't work.

Damn, sorry to hear that man. I smoke too, but not all that much. Maybe a pack a week. Still, I really need to quit though...

I'm glad he's ok. To this day I have never even smoked a cigarette.
