Dads in Hospital


Recommended Posts

Well the doctor had to call 911 from his office and they admitted him to the hospital yesterday. Seems that Dad has multiple lesions on his brain. Is this cancer or something else?? So far they havent really giving us options but Dad is really looking bad. he has gotten so weak that he can not stand on his own or hold up his own weight in the bed or a chair. He cant keep anything down. They have him on an I V for fluids but he keeps vomiting so now they are planning to give him plasma. Last night he started having blood clots in his vomit. This doesnt sound good to me. At first hospice was saying that he may not make it through the night and I rushed home to call my sister and make arrangements for her to fly in from up north but couldnt get her in until this morning. I am fixing to go to the airport now. So far Dad is still hanging in there. He was comfortable when I left him last night at 10pm. He was sleeping and they said that they were going to just keep trying to hydrate him and would call me if anything changed. So I am hoping that he holds on until I get my sister there. I will be in and out today to the hospital but will check occasionally to see if anyone has any info on the lesions. I just havent had the time to research it yet. I am so glad I can come here to vent and get info. Thanks guys............Take care, Shelly

I am keeping you and your family in my prayers tonight. I hope you and your sister are able to spend some good time together with your dad. Looking back to your previous post, I think it is possible you are dealing with brain mets. I know of 2 people who have dealt with it and had similar symptoms. My FIL had 8 of them and went through the brain rad but he also had 2 other areas of concern that they felt they couldn't treat because he was losing too much weight to do more chemo. It's hard to know which mets proved to be the worst. What I can tell you is that hospice was extremely helpful with our family~take advantage of their assistance and literature, and also I would point out that the hearing continues to be very acute even when other senses appear to be lost. I wish you and your sister valuable moments with him at this time.

God bless~
