What is it called?
my grandpa is currently in the hospital,
his heart was fluttering when they took an EKG at his drs, so she called the hospital and told them he'd be coming.
he was told it was an infection between his heart and lungs.
they're going to run more tests just to make sure there is nothing else wrong.

If anyone could,
I'd like some insight or any information on what this could be.
he's my whole world, I just need to know what exactly is happening with him.

Thank you. cry confused shakehead

Thanks.
We found out that it ended up being mainly pneumonia in his left lung. And half of his heart isn't working right. He started Warfarin Yesterday. He's home now.

He's back in the hospital. Had diarrhea, dizziness, went to his drs, his lungs sound HORRIBLE. She said she was afraid if he went home, he'd have congestive heart failure... they did an xray right before I went and seen him, so now I'm waiting to hear something.

Thank you,
They sent him home.
When I went to see him he had an IV drip for the infection, he was doing a breathing treatment lastnight, he was put on Warfarin for the Afib I thought he had ( which he does ), and he was VERY dehydrated. That explains the dizziness and diarrhea yesterday morning.
