Quick Update … Sunday morning!

13 Comments

Quick update (Sunday morning) … Dad deteriorated very suddenly on Friday afternoon … and the resuss team discovered he has a “massive” infection in his right lung (pneumonia). The doc said all they could do was hit him with super antibiotics … but she didn’t think he had the strength to fight the infection and didn’t expect he would pull through. So … his hip op has not happened … he is not strong enough to survive it at the moment. He is still hanging in there … but is extemely unwell. We have spent many hours at the hospital … and I will be going again soon. He has had no warfarin or any other of his Parkinsons medications since Thursday as they cannot get him to swallow. Clotting is now another concern for us. The lack of info is frustrating … because of the weekend. We cannot get to see a doc to ask questions. I guess that is God telling us that He has it all in his hands … and take comfort and in that thought. Thank you all soooooo much for your support, encouragement, prayers and love! I can feel all the hugs that have been sent my way! Thanks heaps. I have been reading through all your wonderful comments … you have no idea what a comfort they are to me! I will publish them all now … and … then … reply as soon as I am able! Hugs xxaxx
