PostSubject: My Dad Just Out of Surgery   Wed Jul 11, 2018 3:45 pm

Prayers for my father (step-father) would be appreciated.  He is just out of surgery.  He had a stent put in his aorta.  It was supposed to be a relatively simple surgery, but he had some complications on top of already having some serious health issues.  My mother said he isn't looking too well.  He is only 68 and we would like to hang onto him for at least a few more years (I would really like him to able to get to see his only granddaughter get married this August). 

Thank you.

Praying here too.

As I get older I realise how short life is.  It flies by at an alarming rate and makes me realise that it's important to make every day count.

We'll be praying here for him, Staybrite.

Thanks everybody.

I got a text message from my Mom today (finally) and said that he looks quite a bit better today.  They plan on keeping him overnight again, but he is supposed to move out of Intensive Care and into a regular room.  They are hoping to send him home tomorrow (Friday the 13th!)

Darn it, just got word that he isn't doing so well.  His heart rate is too high and the same with his white blood cell count (which means he likely has an infection).  They also think he might have bronchitis.  They are moving him into PCU (which my wife tells me is like ICU only not quite as bad).  So he definitely doesn't get to go home today.
Continued prayer would be nice.

Just heard that he does have fluid in his lungs (praying it won't turn into pneumonia).  They moved him to a different room and managed to lose his only pair of glasses.  If you have an older parent or grandfather who needs to go into care at a VA hospital just remember they will need extra prayer.  For some reason those facilities seem like they could be better run/managed by the Marx Brothers.
At this point we have no idea when he is going to be able to come home.  Sad

He was well enough that they sent him home late yesterday.  They decided to stop and get some dinner on the way home and he fell trying to get from the car to the wheelchair (he got impatient and wouldn't wait for my mom to help him).  He got a little beat up falling to the ground and thought he might have broken a rib.  My mom took him to the emergency room to get checked out.  Thankfully he didn't have any broken bones, just a badly scraped up elbow.  So he is finally home.  Now my mom is so sick she has walking pneumonia.  I really whish they hadn't moved so far away, or I could be helping them.

Good he's home.

I can imagine why you didn't like it your parents are so far from you.
It's nice to give them the help they need.

I am glad to hear that your dad is at home.  I have been off the grid this past week for the most part.  I did a few quick looks at Facebook when I would make the 12 mile trek to the nearest wi-fi so I could call my wife.  I had to use Facebook Messenger to make a call while I was at camp as there are NO AT&T towers out there.  Verizon barely had service.

How is your mom doing?  I've had walking pneumonia--TWICE.  I've had the normal kind only once.  I would prefer the normal kind.  With walking pneumonia, it can literally take months to get over as your lungs are full of junk that hardens.

They have her on antibiotics (for the sinus infection), but it is going to take a while to shake the pneumonia.  Fortunately she doesn't work anymore, and shouldn't have to do much over the next few weeks.  Helps that she isn't drive 1-1/2 hours each way to the hospital for my dad anymore.
