My Father is in the Hospital.
 
My father has Alzheimer's and we recently had to put him in a nursing home about 4 weeks ago.
Today, they took him to the emergency room because his blood sugar was over 500. He is expected to be released in a couple of days.
I have a hunch that they have not been giving him his insulin shots, as he is diabetic. The first week he was in the nursing home he was dropped on his knees, and one day they forgot to feed him. I don't really want him in a nursing home, but caring for him had just become too much of a burden for me and my brother and mother. He is unable to get out of bed on his own, and can barely walk now. He is 80.

Thanks for your prayers.

He was running a fever today. Hopefully that clears up.

Jeff, hoping your dad is doing better and the nursing home is doing their job well. Keep checking on them. Prayers said for him.

He's still in the hospital. His blood sugar is back down, and his fever is gone. Maybe he'll be able to be moved back into the nursing home soon.

I know how difficult your situation is. My sympathy and empathy go out to you.

He's doing a little better. I think he's getting better care here than at the nursing home, and it's covered by Medicare. The nursing home is about $4000/month, though 30 days may be covered by insurance once he's released from the hospital.

He's not in as much danger as he was a few days ago.

Thanks for your continuing prayers. :thumbup:

My father took a turn for the worst this afternoon and was rushed into the ICU. He could barely breathe and his blood pressure was really low.
He is hooked up to a ventilator and a bunch of other stuff right now, and has been in stable condition for the last 5 hours and is doing much better now. The doctor said it's now just a waiting game. So far, he is doing as well as he can.
His original complications last week (high blood sugar) and his blood pressure problems are most likely his body's reaction to a bed sore that got severely infected. Fortunately, it's not very deep.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.
