Thoughts & Prayers Needed Please

Post by panzermk2wife » 11 Nov 2011, 15:59

Well my dad had his appointment today with his dr and she did what she had to do and did an EKG and told us we needed to get him to the ER ASAP because she thinks it might be Congestive Heart Failure.

Why they call it an ER I will never know because it took over an hour for him to just get an X-Ray done. Well they did the X-Ray and the tech asks my mom if he's missing 1/2 of his left lung? Then she looked at it closer and discovered his left lung is completely filled with fluid. So they have admitted him and running more tests and are going to have a couple of specialists come and look at him.

So that is where we are at right now. I'll let you guys know more when the doctors do what they need to do.



Once we know what's going on I will be back to catch up on the over 200 emails from the pass few days :(

Get him a different nurse. Fluid in the lungs is common for CHF so for her to not realize this and to ask if he didnt have a lung is ridiculous. What hospital is he at? I will keep him in my prayers.

Well got an update and I don't pretend to be a dr so here we go....
They found a tumor (which will be biopsied Saturday) in the Pleura which is a two layered sac that holds the lungs and separates them from the chest wall, diaphragm, and heart along with about 75% of his left lung submerged in fluid. So at this point they have him resting comfortably in a room until they do the biopsy tomorrow morning to figure out their next coarse of action.

Again, thank you for all your thoughts & prayers.



Mike, he's at Centegra in Woodstock

Lisa, I will be praying for you, your family, and your dad. Family is everything. Stay strong.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Well the biopsy has been delayed due to the fact the surgeon who is to do it will not be in until Monday or Tuesday. So the wait continues :( But the kids are allowed to visit him so we will be going up sometime on Sunday afternoon for a visit.

Thank you so much

Well we took the kids up to see their Papa yesterday and they were so excited. He looks a little better compared to when he went in on Friday.

I am hoping we hear something today on what's going on. This not knowing is driving me crazy.

I have begun to get through the 325 emails that are in my Inbox....yikes

Well it's confirmed, my dad goes in for surgery for his biopsy this afternoon. Now maybe we can get some answers. The poor guy has been there since Friday.

Thanks John

Tomorrow my dad will be in the hospital a week and still no real answers for us. They say they are still running tests...blah blah blah

They claim they should have answers for us on Friday. If not I am just gonna snap. Totally stressed out, not eating right and not sleeping.

And to top it off I have had only 5 people out of 15 RSVP to Joey's party on Saturday. Seriously people I put the RSVP on there for a reason. Just what I need...more aggravation. Do I bother calling these people or just walk away from it is the question. That will depend on what side of the bed I get up on in the morning.

Lisa, really do understand the frustrations, and know how hard it is to turn some or "any" of it over to someone else or the ol' Man Upstairs.

We have a sign, displayed prominently in our offices, that states:

"Lack of planning on your part, does not constitute an emergency on our part."

You've got a lot on your mind and "plate", you're making the best decisions you can with the information and materials at hand at that time.

We're not like Prof. Peabody & Sherman, we don't have a "way-back" machine to take us back in time so that we could "know then what we know now", so do not allow yourself to go down "that path".

Continue to do the best you can, putting one foot in front of the other, breathe in breathe out and move on, always forward.

And lastly, remember that there's a lot of us out here keepin' y'all in our thoughts & prayers!

John

As of this moment I will be off the forum and out of the office until further notice.
I spoke with my mom and my dad will not be coming home again and they have not given a time frame.
For those who have kept myself and my family in their thoughts and prayers I sincerely Thank you from the bottom of my heart. We are not telling the kids until well after Joey's party because we want him to have a good time Saturday.
May God give me the strength to keep it together for my mom, dad and my children.

Sorry to hear this news. Spend as much time as you can with him. When my mother died last year I missed her by a day, and it still bothers me today.
