Hi rkayne and Shannon, thank you for giving me and my father hope :) Did you have dialysis for your kidneys??? We are working with his doctors to get the best care, up to this point he refused to be in the hospital, at this point, he needs to be there, he is too ill for my mom to work and care for him right now. We spoke with the doctors about home care as well, when my mom is at work, someone to be there with him, because 2 days ago was scary, when my mom got home from work, he was standing downstairs ( their basement is freezing cold) not knowing what he was doing, he was pushing all the coffee tables around and we think he may fell down the stairs on his bum because he has a bruise, thank god that's all that happened. We are looking into someone being with him when he comes home, when my mom is at work. My mom has to work to pay the bills and mortgage etc. when my mom got home from work she was so scared SHE COULDNT FIND HIM ANYWHERE, HE NEVER GOES DOWNSTAIRS! She was calling for him and she heard a faint, I'm here coming from the basement, she found him absolutely freezing cold and not sure how he got down there, we need support at this point, to ensure he doesn't hurt himself. That day he went in by ambulance with NO fight at all, he said he knows he has to go in. This is the first time he has agreed, I am relieved at that. The past few weeks he has gone down so fast, not eating, hardly drinking, hiccups, nosebleeds, very very very sore throat, yellow stool, vomiting, naseous, weak, he couldn't get to the bathroom without leaning on my mom. So I am relieved he went in. His color is very dark, then pale, which is very different than his yellow hue. I just want my dad to get better, I love him dearly. I don't want to see him in pain or suffer, he never complains ever and has never had any pain medication. He really is a trooper.
