    Normal, husband discharged from local hospital mini heart unit, with OXY at 81, I looked at nurses who shrugged their shoulders in front of Dr, as soon as he had left room they told me to take him to another hospital across town, which has a dedicated heart unit, they kept him 8 days. And yes he does have a major heart condition, dialated cardiomyopathy, and all the underlying issues that come with a cardiomyopathy, valves, electrical system of heart not working correctly, with ejection fraction at that first discharge of 23%. 

    Dr that discharged him is still at local hospital, seems to be protected species by powers that be, would not go there unless seriously ill, and certainly not for heart condition.
