Re: Dad is poorly and hospitalized


Update: Dad is pretty stable right now. Dialysis not started yet as numbers are not where they need to be. He's breathing well but the problem at the moment is his kidneys are not able to filter out the sedatives which in turn is making him feel very restless. Hopefully some morphine will help him get some rest. He'll need physical and occupational therapy to regain his faculties. He's aware but a little confused sometimes which is probably just from the drugs that can't filter out. He was able to eat and drink a little too.

That's very good news Tink - hopefully they can get him onto dialysis soon which is bound to help.

Re: Dad is poorly and hospitalized


My Dad is at home now and doing okay albeit confused and depressed so don't think his brain is quite right. My Mom is having a very important surgery this Wednesday and she can't delay it so me and Trinidad will be there for a few days to look after him while my aunt helps my Mom recover. Quite anxious about leaving the furkids but have a well trusted friend looking after him and I gave him a very extenisve list of the things to do while I'm gone so I'm sure they're in good hands. We take the train Tuesday morning and return Friday night.

Hope all goes well for your Mom's surgery Tink and trust all will go well for you and Trinidad looking after your Dad. Sure the babes will be fine .... and will love you even more when you get home.
