This morning Dad woke up not feeling well at all. He did eat a good breakfast, but I felt it necessary to call his doctor about some problems Dad was having with his 'plumbing' and how he wasn't feeling well. Also, around that time we checked his blood pressure and found that it had dropped seriously low. So at 9:30 am he and I took off to the Emergency Room.
They re-admitted Dad into the hospital. He'll probably be able to come home again tomorrow, but before then he will be visited by a urologist and also hopefully his BP can come up a bit and stabilize at a more normal level.
He's bummed to be back but realizes that it's for the best, as he was most miserable. At least now he is resting comfortably, and help will be on its way. Another plus is that he got to eat non-hospital food for dinner last night and breakfast this morning so he has some good nourishment in his system :) ...he barely touches the hospital food.:(
So yes, it's been another long day at the hospital. I am taking a quick break at a nearby office to get some work done, then I'll grab some dinner and head back to be with Dad for a while this evening before returning home.
Mom has been able to stay at home all day and a good friend has stayed there with her and helped her.
We'll be alright... just please keep praying for Dad to improve.
And for any of you northerners who are jealous that I am here in "sunny" Florida... just know that it's rainy and cloudy here today. But it is in the 60s and that is very nice. :)
"Oh, the sun'll come out tomorrow.....bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun...." :)
