Last Friday I received a call that my dad was taken by ambulance to the Heart Hospital with an infection and that his blood pressure and heart rate were extremely low. As it turns out , he was one very, very sick man and stayed in CCU over the weekend and then was moved to a regular floor prior to discharge. Apparently he had a UTI that went into sepsis which led to collapse of his vascular system thus causing blood pressure and heart rate issues. He also has some history of bundle blockage of his heart and CHF. Thanks to antibiotics,Dopamine, doctors, nurses and a lot of prayer he is on the road to recovery.
My dad turned 83 years old this month and really has had very few major health issues so our family's world was put into a tailspin to see him so ill. God has blessed me with a very loving, caring and Christ loving father.I'm happy to report that dad is recovering and was discharged from the hospital Tuesday evening to go back to Assisted Living in Rosewood Gardens. He has a lot of healing to get his strength back but we are so thankful to have him feeling so much better.
LOVE YOU DAD!
