What’s goin on with Dad??

23 Feb

Here is the latest, as I understand it:

We had a GREAT weekend visit with Mom and Dad last weekend.  It was the first in a long time that I didn’t feel like he’d taken a step back … With that written, on Sunday he was very weak.  He is always tired after we visit, because he doesn’t go to bed until late Friday night and refuses to take a nap on Saturday.  But this time it was different.  Mom had to call EMS because he couldn’t even get up.

After spending most of the evening and early morning in the ER at Greenville Memorial, he was diagnosed with a severe urinary tract infection, given some IV antibiotics, and sent home …  via ambulance!  Monday was a pretty good day.  Tuesday was not so good … Dad has to be patient and allow the medicine to do its job.

Betty Moore-Bell told me the biggest challenges Dad will face with his current health will be UTIs.  She was correct!!  I’m just praying today for a quick recovery.  Hope you will join me in that!!
