Re: My Father is in the Hospital.

I left work early today. Doesn't look good. My family has to meet with a social worker this afternoon. He has slipped into a coma.

Thank you for your prayers.

Re: My Father is in the Hospital.

Still a waiting game. He had a CT scan and it didn't show anything that would be causing him to be unresponsive. The results of this scan will be discussed with a neurologist tomorrow, and our family will meet with the social worker again on Thursday.
He is still unable to breathe on his own.
There is the possibility that he had a stroke, or a series of small strokes.
I should hopefully know more soon.
Thanks for your continuing prayers.

Re: My Father is in the Hospital.

Today he is initiating some of of his own breaths-still hooked up to a ventilator.
He opened his eyes a little bit ago, and I guess he tried to move his mouth when my mother was looking into his eyes. He also moved his hand a little for my aunt.
My uncle from Rhode Island was here for awhile today.
The doctor said that his opening his eyes is not necessarily a good sign that he is getting better, but at least he is somewhat responsive.

Yesterday he wouldn't open his eyes, or cough (an occasional cough is normal, so I'm told, when hooked up to a ventilator. He coughed a little while ago.)
They have cut down on his sedation medicine, which is why he is no longer in a coma. It was a medically induced coma they put him in because of the tube is in throat, which I can imagine is anything but pleasant.

Thank you for your continuing prayers.

You and your family are all in my prayers Jeff. I hope that if it is time ffor your Dad to let go, that he does so in Peace, without pain and understanding of the Lord. It is so hard to let go of our parents, it tears you up. Just know that we are here.

Thank you so much for your prayers.
He was taken off life support this afternoon about 2 hours ago, and is now in a private room, getting hospice care at the hospital for now, and a hospice center in a few days.

Re: My Father is in the Hospital.

I am sad to announce that my father has just passed away. My mother was holding his hand and my brother and I were nearby.
Thank you for your prayers.

I'm so very sorry you you and your family Jeff. I also am glad that your Mom got to hold his hand as he went. My father was also blessed with that.
