#291 - Grandpa Redman

Yesterday (Friday) was a tough day for Grandma and Grandpa Redman....

They woke up to find their dog Doogie couldn't even stand up. He's been sick for a while, and it progressed very quickly this week. They made an appointment and had him put to sleep in the afternoon. (They have had Doogie for 12 years). Even I was teary as it brought back memories of Newton.

Then....

My mom got home from a walk to find Keith doubled over in pain, holding his chest. After a quick ride in an ambulance to one hospital and then another, they determined it was a mild heart attack. He had a cardiac cauterization and a stint put in.

We are so thankful he is ok. He is still resting in a hospital in Michigan, and they hope to be able to return home today or tomorrow.
