Dad update

I have so much to do....so I can't blog long. I just wanted to update those of you who are following Dad's story.

First of all, Dad was discharged today from the Florida hospital. Soon after he arrived at their place in FL, Dad's stent came out. Mom called the hospital and they needed him back to take a peek at things. Just in a short amount of time, Dad became very yellow in color because the bile was not leaving his system as it should have been. Dad is very weak and can not walk alone. He is just a very sick man.

When Dad arrived a the hospital, he had a fairly high fever and so he needed to be re-admitted. He had his stent replaced and was totally sedated. A chest tube was also inserted. They are looking for infection. The fever suggests something is wrong. Now what????

So, as for flying back home tomorrow....no. As for getting him to the Clev. Clinic and admitted....no. He will remain in FL for awhile in the hospital as they look deeper to what this could be. Mom had to cancel their flight for tomorrow and who knows what will happen. He is too weak to fly. Honestly, I don't know if he even can fly. He can't sit up. We need a private airplane to fly him....seriously. Anyone have any connections???? We are grasping at straws and need help. I know he has a lot of people praying....and we need that. We also need a miracle to get him home soon. I believe in them....and I know they can happen. If anyone has any suggestions for me....lay them on me. We NEED him home....and will do what it takes to get him here.

We appreciate you all....and love you for the prayers. Give Mom some prayer time, too. I am sure she could use it about now.

Love to all.....
