I was going to leave a comment on my last post to all of you, but decided I would write a proper response instead.
Things here are still very hectic. Dad is not doing well and has lost 19.7 pounds in the last 3 1/2 weeks. Of course most of the weight loss is because he is feeling so rough. I have had him back to the Doctor several times and today, she put in the hospital as an out patient to run tests, do lab work and give him fluids intravenously. We were there from 9:30 am til 6:30pm. I think it helped him some, but we don't have any results yet.
I have nagged, begged and threatened him, but can only get him to eat small amounts and he drinks a little juice. I keep trying though. Hopefully in the next few days we will find out if it is still the shingles and the staph or if it's something else.
I read each one of your comments and they brought smiles to my face. Your genuine concern and well wishes are so welcome. Your encouragement and understanding are just what I need during this difficult time. Thank you!
I am hoping to get back to posting and reading your blogs soon. After all, Spring is coming and we will have so much to talk about!
