My Dad is having a set back

UPDATE 2/1/11 6:30 PM (PST): I had my husband call my dad's girlfriend, in case I hadn't understood correctly.

She told my husband that my father had spoken to her in the afternoon - of course that was after she had called me and scared the bejeezus out of me (and didn't even call me back and tell me that he had spoken to her!!! ARGH!).

She spoke with the doctor and the current theory is still that they had changed my dad's antibiotics and that the new ones were making him drowsy.


So sorry for the worry to you guys - I'm a basket case but there's no reason for me to take you along with me! Sorry!

Thanks for being there and I will try not post in haste again ...



I didn't call my dad's girlfriend this morning as I've been doing every morning, today, since I feel so horrible and it's hard for me to talk without having a coughing fit. I figured she would call me if there was something I should know.

She called a little while ago and said that something is up with him today ... she said that he "fell into a deep sleep this morning" and that he hasn't roused himself.

Currently all we know is that his white blood cell count is up. An infection could account for his behavior but she reminded me of his bad heart.

They are running tests.

I am so worried about my daddy ...


  1. I'm so sorry, I am sure it is harder that your not there to know what is happening. You will be in my thoughts....

  2. Oh, Sally, I am so very sorry to hear about your dad. And you are sick, too. You are in my thoughts and prayers, sweetie! xoxo Pam

  3. Hang in there Sally. It's so hard to wait-my Dad has been in the hospital since last Friday and they are not sure what his blood problems are. He may be out soon, but I'm iced in here so don't know when I can get out. Anyway, I've been thinking about you and your Dad so much-since I'm going through some of the same. I hope they find out what's wrong and can do something to help him. Hugs and positive thoughts to you.

  4. I'm sorry, Sally.
    You and your dad will be in my thoughts and prayers. ♥

  5. Sally, I'm keeing your Dad and you in my prayers. Hugs, Nan

  6. Please let us know whatever the situation may be because I for one feel that at least we can pray, seeing that we are mostly away from you and would want to help. Update whenever you can and glad you let us know.
