Dad Update

Dad is back in the hospital here in Beaumont. Mom called me this afternoon to help her bring him to the doctor because she was concerned about his incision site. When I got there, he was so weak that I called 911 immediately.

When the paramedics got to the house about two minutes later, they told us he had very low blood pressure and rushed him to the emergency room. He is spending the night in ICU tonight.

When we left him tonight, his blood pressure had stabilized. He never lost consciousness and, in fact, ate a sandwich and drank some juice earlier in the emergency room.

Also, his jaundice is back.

Darn it! The stabilizing and eating part is good.

Baby sis:

I'm just glad his dr. here in Beaumont is even fed up Houston.

I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. Is he in St. Elizabeth's?
