My Dad was hospitalized last week because his white cell count was super low, his platelets were super low, and his hemoglobin dropped quickly and in top of that he was dehydrated and couldn't keep anything down...including his pain meds. When cancer is in your bones, that's very bad times.
He decided last night to stop treatments and try to gain back some quality of life. I spent the day with him and Mom at the hospital. Mom just called me and said they're taking him over to the cardiac care unit because they detected some atrial fibrillation. They're testing him for all sorts of things, pneumonia being one and some others. The nurse told Mom it could be very bad or nothing at all.
Ladies, I feel sure it's very bad. He's so incredibly weak...I can't see that even if it is something small it will be huge for his poor body.
So please pray for him. He and our family could really use any extra prayers you've got. Thanks. 2011 is awful. I've lost a grandfather, a gallbladder, a baby and now maybe my Dad.
