Dads Back In The Hospital

Monday Sept. 14, 2009

I want to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers you have sent our way.   Dad is back in the hospital with bleeding in his stomach.  Seems the blood thinners are to much for his system.  They are taking him off them, and I feel very good about that.  I knew they were very strong with some serious side effects, now I don’t have to worry about that.

I went to pick dad up this morning for his doctor appointment, he was in such pain I had to call the paramedics.  There was no way I could get him into the car.  The paramedics administered pain medication within 10 minutes of checking him.

Dad is resting comfortably, the pain meds are working great.  I sure am spending a lot of time in the hospital, good thing I enjoy reading, and this time I brought the computer with me. 

I hope dad will only being spending one night here, as the couch in his room is not the most comfortable.  The nurses do bring in sheets and blankets in the evening for me.

So sorry to hear about your dad, but maybe it will be better that he is off that blood thinner. Bobbie
