It is Definitely Time for a Dad Update

Honestly things are at a standstill. The surgery went well. The medicines seem to be doing the job. He has some relief and is breathing better. He has a tube draining fluid out of his liver. I wish I could actually speak to his doctor to know the details. I get this information from my mom who honestly doesn't understand anything medical at all. I have not been able to go see my dad in about a week because we have all been so sick in this house. I will not risk my dad catching something, nor anyone else in the hospital as I am sure you can all appreciate. I miss my dad and just wish he could be his old self again but I don't see that happening any time soon.

He is back on a feeding tube. He is just not eating right on his own. His mouth gets so dry and they just swab it with those wet sponges. I feel for him. He talks very short of breath so I don't even like to call him because I worry it is too much. At the same I remember when people did that to me when I was sick. Even though I knew I couldn't talk long I still liked talking to people. I needed to feel cared about. I felt abandoned in many ways.

This is the most I have right now. We are so thankful the surgery went well. The screen was put in to prevent any further clots from going up into his lungs. Hopefully all these things work the way they should. I would like to get in to see my dad but until the illness totally clears out I am not risking my dads life. I am going to call though. Right now actually. I'll post new updates as soon as possible.
