Thanks. Finally got a hold of my dad. They are not going to admit him to the hospital until the ER team can stabilize his heart rate and his blood pressure, both of which are very high and erratic. Apparently they are concerned about potential congestive heart failure and some blood clots. I will hopefully know more tomorrow.

I am going to go back to bed and endeavor to go back to taking care of me.

Thanks for the hug!

My sympathies to you.

I hope your adoptive-mum's rehab goes well and am glad the hip fracture was not serious/complex enough to need surgery.
I also hope the news tomorrow is good about your dad.

Thanks!

So far the news is they were able to stabilize Dad enough to move him to his own room. I do not yet know the results of the other tests, but it does "feel" better that he's in a room in the hospital and not in the ER anymore.

They've extended the rehab for mum to the 17th and for dad.. meds haven't worked yet to stabilize his heart so they are doing some sort of electric shock procedure tomorrow. :(

I hope your father's procedure went smoothly.

Thank you CP for the "moody" fun with AJ tonight. I was not in the space to be Lorianna :)

When I logged with you, I found out My dad is home as of the last couple hours, but I am being told that they could not do the procedure because his blood was too thin so he will have to come back, but that his blood pressure was stabilized enough for them to send him home. (Or he may have decided to just call it close enough and go home himself; I'm unsure on this point.) However I am also hearing there are several "serious concerns" with his heart and healing and there is not an ETA on when he can resume work or even normal activity. What is really frustrating to me is that nobody's telling me what that actually and realistically means.

Dad says he does not want me to come to help, that he is fine, but his wife is now freaking out on Facebook because he's always her caretaker. However, she is quite prone to drama, so I don't actually know what the truth is. At this point, all I am left with is taking dad at his word, so there you go. I'm really concerned about him. :(

Ok! Today was the day for plan movement! Yay! I will potentially be out of game ( or very limited) for a few days ( including today) to help my sister finish up the last few things that need to happen before mum can ( for sure now) come home on Thursday.

dad saw that I was not doing well with him just being optimistic and keeping me in the dark, and filled me in on all the actual details and facts. Now I don't have a bunch of unknowns to worry about. :) I am clear on his next six weeks of treatment which of course will change as time passes, but now I am at least in a good direction on both fronts :-) thanks for all of the good vibes :-)

I'm home! I'm home! :)

Just in time to read about all of Amby's troubles with her family's health; yikes! :( I hope that everything continues to progress well, and all our support and good wishes from me and Akai!

I'm about to read the forums to get caught up on what has happened while I was gone. Lexy WILL be at the Tower tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST, unless I find out there is some reason he can't/shouldn't be when I read the forums. :)

I missed you guys.

I lost my umph to adventure and am going to go lay down for a little bit: I Got a call from my brother; Dad is back in the ER as of late last night. We haven't yet been able to reach him at the hospital, so I don't know more details or what triggered this trip or if he's OK.

I know the last 5ish weeks of meds haven't helped, but he'snow through the month of mandatory blood thinner to prep for the shock treatment. As a result, I hope what I find out is that they can do that soon. Something's got to change as he's now 3 months without his heart running normally.

:(
