This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Not A Happy Camper...

Dad is not liking the chest restraint, keeping him in bed.  He is agitated and has been pulling out his IV.  They had to move him to another room closer to the nursing station.

He has been receiving breathing treatments three times per day for his bronchitis. His blood pressure is good and so are his sugar levels.

Dad's doctor responded to my email.  He said he would be starting Dad on IV antibiotics for the MRSA and may discharge Dad today, if all goes well...

I sent Dad's doctor a return email, seeking more detailed explanation on what constitutes "if all goes well".

Dad was sleeping, no doubt worn out from his antics earlier this morning.  I plan on calling around 5pm, before his dinner time.  Hopefully, I can talk to him or get some answers by then...I will edit this post with another update if I find out anything new...

Your poor Dad! He needs to go back home! I hope that happens soon, with no IV's or restraints!

I also hope he will soon be back where he is comfortable with no restraints and no breathing problems.

Looking forward to your next post, Donna, when hopefully you will be telling us that he is able to go home, where he will be comfortable again in surroundings he knows and people that care for him.
