Don't Panic!

Mom was going to come over, she's got some little crafts we agreed to finish up for the Eastern Star Grand Session, the Worthy Grand Matron's from our chapter, so everyone's been pitching in and doing whatever they can.
Ten minutes before she's supposed to get here, I get a call.
"Hi, is this ____ ____'s daughter?"
"This is ____ with the (Mom's place of work). Your mom asked me to call you and tell you she's going to be late, she has to take her husband to the emergency room and she wants you not to panic."
"She's taking Dad to the emergency room and she says I shouldn't panic!?!"

Dad's had a whole slew of interconnected health problems, in fact, he was just in for tests yesterday, and last week, too. Hopefully it's nothing big. Almost certainly it's nothing new, and the fact that Mom was taking him (they work in the same building) rather than him calling 911 means it's almost surely the same old issues.
If anyone happens to still read my poor neglected blog, would you please say a prayer for my dad? I'm not so concerned about his health but about his soul. And while you're praying, you might mention Bane's little boy. www.banedad.blogspot.com if you aren't up to date.

UPDATE: Mom and Dad just called, Dad's feeling okay for now, and as usual, the doctors haven't got a clue what's going on. Actually, he called his cardiologists to report some symptoms, and they told him to go to the emergency room, so he called Mom to tell her he was driving himself up there (four blocks from where they work) and of course she wasn't having that. The doctors are running their tests, but it seems to be the same "Well, you feel symptoms but we can't find anything wrong with you at all on our tests." that has happened at least a dozen times over the years. Something's going on, but evidently medical technology isn't advanced enough to figure out what. The docs are debating whether or not to admit him, and in the mean time are transfering him over to the other campus which has more heart patient facilities. Naturally, I gave Mom a bit of a bad time over her 'Don't panic' message.
They held Dad over night, don't know what the test results mean. As usual. Tuesday today, and Dad's doing just fine. Ornery as usual.

    You're doing fine. Comment more, here and there. And consider Haloscan.

    Good luck, and thanks for your prayers.

    Ya know, Bane, I looked at Haloscan, and decided it required more confidence in manipulating code than I have. I figure I'd trash the whole blog if I tried.
