My Father Is In The Hospital Again

Yesterday I received an email from Abel, my father collapsed while having breakfast. They rushed him to the nearest hospital in their place (Baulkham Hills Private). Workups were again done. Up to now, no diagnosis is given yet by his attending cardiologist.

I am suspecting he might be suffering from hypotension secondary to his anti-hypertensive drugs. He is on Micardis 40mg BID, Coversyl 8mg OD, Norvasc 20mg OD. This is the second time he collapsed since Micardis was added to his maintenance drugs.

He is undergoing 2D echo right now, I am hoping his heart functions are still normal. Please offer prayers for my father.
