Justin's dad is sick. Last night his sister, Ashlie, called us and said that he'd had a heart attack, and fallen down, and hit his head. Several hours later at the hospital it's been determined that he did not, in fact, have a heart attack, but that his blood pressure had dropped rapidly (which has been happening fairly regularly, unfortunately) and that caused him to pass out. He has a (I think) minor concussion, and was complaining of shortness of breath and pain in his chest. After an x-ray to rule out broken ribs from the fall and a CT scan to check for pulmonary embolism it turns out that he's got an infection that was preventing one of his lungs from working properly. Anyway, all the stuff that's wrong is better than an actual heart attack, I'm not sure if he left the hospital last night or not, (I would assume not though) and we are waiting on the next update from Ashlie, for now, I think I've got all the facts right and I'll let you know more as and when...thanks for your thoughts.

Thinking of you and Justin. Hope he's stable now. I was trying to think how I got my twitters on my blog and I think there is an "add to blog" button. I will keep an eye out for if I see it again.

Low blood pressure, huh?
This all sounds like a bit of a medical mystery.
