This hasn't really been the best week. On Monday Allen lost a soldier in his company, SGT Kraig Foyteck.
Tuesday morning, my father had heart surgery, fortunately everything went fine, though they did have to repair more than expected.
Tuesday evening, Allen's stepdad was in the ICU with problems with his heart. (I'm sorry, I don't know all the medical terms to explain further.) By Wednesday night he was out of ICU and on digitalis, which put his heart back into rhythm.
Apparently, my dad's heart still isn't beating correctly, and they are putting a pacemaker in his heart today.
The week has to get better, right?
