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.
