Dr Hillard is dads doctor for today 👨‍⚕️ and he was just in. 

After looking at Dads echocardiogram from yesterday, his ejection fraction (cardiac output) has actually gotten better since 2013. It was 33% then and up to 40-40% yesterday. 

 So, that’s good news. 

 The test he’s having today is in 2 parts. He’ll be going in for the first part between now and 10am. They have to wait 3 hours before the second part (the drug that stresses his heart) and hopefully will have the results by 2-2:30p. 

 If it looks good, he can go home, if not … they’ll see what the plan is, which could include an angiogram.
Will update with more later.
