Phil goes to the ER

My father in law, Phil Huffman, was admitted to the hospital this morning with chest pain and increased heart rate. Medicine fixed the pulse issues but the doctors are holding him for testing.

UPDATE: Phil is fine. The doctor said that there has been an abnomality that has recently formed in his heart that triggered (reset) his heart over and over again until his pulse reached about 220 bpm. The EKG came out OK. The blood tests came out OK. They're holding him until this morning just to be sure.

  1. Glad to hear that Phil is fine.. sounds like what his cousin Joe Huffman has.. his heart beats to fast.. but he is on lots of meds.Thanks for keeping us informed. His cousin Carol Ruth has heart problems too .. they are about the same age.. but Phil has the benefits of being partly Brott..We will keep him in our prayers.. Lots of Love...
