I need some board magic.....

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
yesterday my Dad was admitted to the hospital with Reanl failure, Congestive heart failure, and a blockage in the lower part of his intestines. Dad is a stubborn man(gee I wonder where I get mine from) and has been refuseing to go to the Doctor for over a month.

After Mom called me yesterday at work and told me that my Dad was once again having stomache problems with nausea, vomiting etc. I took off to their house and with the threat of bodily harm onto my person got my Dad to the Doctor. I told Dad that he could threaten me all that he wanted to and after he got to feeling better he could whip me like I was a little girl again but he was going to the Doctor anyway.

Dad is usually a patient of the VA hospital, the closest VA is 2 hours away in Lake City FL. The Doctor here in town at the Urgent Care clinic advised us that he may not make it to the VA and was admitted here in our local hospital until he was stable enough to be transfered to the VA in Gainesville FL which is 3 hours away,since the Lake City FL. VA didn't have a bed and no longer does surgery.

I need all the prayers and good vibes that this board can give for Dad to get better I am not ready and I never will be to loose my Dad

Positive waves coming your way from Kansas City. That was really cool of you to tell him in no uncertain terms that he had to go to the doctor. It's so hard to do that as the "child". You go girl!

I just got in from the hospital. Dad is not doing as well as hoped. He was put on Dialysis(sp) to clean his blood since all of the poisions from his system was at a dangerous level. After returning to his room the site in his upper chest area where the shunts were inserted for the process has continued to bleed. At one point when the amount of blood was very heavy the nurse got me to put pressure on the area until she could go and get some help to get the bleeding stopped.

I have never done that before but I would have stood there and put pressure on my Dad all night if neccessary. Please, please continue to pray for my Dad Thank you to all who have already put Dad in their prayers.

Dad is still not doing very well at all. Please keep the prayers coming for him. The Doctors can't get the bleeding to stop where the shunts were put into his chest for the Dialysis.

Thank you all for the well wishes and the prayers

Finally we may be seeing and end to the tunnel. Dad was very slightly improved tonight after another Dialysis treatment and blood transfusions from the blood loss of last night and earlier today.

The Doctors are talking about a procedure where they go in and put a tube between the kidney and the bladder to open the tube that runs between them(sorry I don't know the right names for these things). The only choices we (my Mom,2 brothers, and Sister) had to make were, this procedure, Dialysis for the rest of his life, or GOD forbide...death. We all decided that Dad will go through the tube procedure.

Keep the prayers coming. Mom has requested that I send a special "Thank You" to all of TCS members who have been praying for Dad. I printed out this thread to read them to my Dad. We appreciate each and every one of you
