    Hopefully we are at least a small distraction from your daily issues. I have been there unfortunately but it was before the internet and social media. We all hope for the best outcome.

    Thanks!

    I try and use FEP as a distraction and stress reliever, but I have had so little spare time lately. Usually just a few minutes late at night (like now!) until I can't keep my eyes open and then go to bed!

    Wanted to give everyone an update on my Dad and his health.

    Unfortunately once again he is in the hospital and has been for almost a week now. At first the doctors thought his only kidney was finally shutting down and he might have to go on dialysis. Things were hit and miss for the first couple of days as they had to do cultures as it appeared he had a UTI, but they needed to determine if it was in his kidney, his stint in his kidney or what. This is what put him in the ICU in December of 2013 for 22 days and a medical comma for 8 of those days. So needless to say we were all very worried and scared.

    Fortunately the results came back and although the results showed a Staph infection at least we know what it is and how to deal with it now. His doctor is the same one that dealt with the whole 2013 debacle so she isn't willing to allow this to get out of control and history repeat itself again. He is going to be in the hospital for at least another 10 days at this point until everything is cleared up and he is off the antibiotics, etc. He's not happy about that, but at least understands the seriousness of the situation.

    We visited him last night and I am happy to say that I was able to see my ole' Dad again for the first time in probably 2 years. He was awake, interactive, funny, and just an all around joy to visit with. He obviously wasn't in the constant paint and discomfort that he has endured for the last several years. I am cautiously optimist that things will continue and maybe see some improvements in his overall health and fitness. I know he has been thru hell and back and he will never be without some issues, but I am hoping and praying that we can get him to a point mentally, physically, and emotionally that his quality of life is decent enough that it's worth living and enjoying and not just existing.

    Thanks once again to everyone for your prayer, thoughts, and concerns they are greatly appreciated and I truly believe all that energy put out there has helped my father get through this situation and come out in a better way then many expected. I hope to update with more good news as the week goes on. Thanks!

    Thanks to everyone again for all the thoughts, prayers, and good wishes, they are much appreciated!

    Good news, Dad was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon and is back home once again!

    I am happy to report that he came home in much better shape this time than the last 3 or more. He looks better, seems to feel better, and so far has been more interactive and attentive than in the past.

    I know we still have a rough road ahead, but I am hoping and praying that maybe this time we are going to finally see some improvement in his day to day health and ability to live some type of average daily life that isn't sleeping 18-20 hours a day and just being comatose in his recliner. We are having a small family party this evening for him coming home from the hospital and to celebrate Veterans day for him/with him too.

    Thanks once again for all the help, support, thoughts, and prayers through this situation. I greatly appreciate it and so does my family. I will post some updates as time goes on and hopefully they are all good ones in the future. Thanks!

    Wow, I can't believe I didn't see your post before. My dad also a Vietnam veteran, has been in and out of the va hospital with colon cancer and 7 days after his colon surgery had a heart attack! It didnt look good that night. I drove 120 mph the 12 miles to his house thinking i was gonna be saying good by. My only consolation was that his eternal security is certain . While we prayed for his health we knew where he was going should he not make it . Our prayers were answered as he just got released from osu hospital on friday, they did a stint to fix a 95% blockage. He is 71 years old, strong as a ox, and a die-hard mustang guy. He has a 71 boss 351, a 68 428 Cobra Jet Car and pretty close to 35 other classic Mustangs from the 60s. Besides the specific cars i mentioned many of these are parts cars but he has taught me everything I know about car Restorations. He has inspired me as a dad to teach my son as we tackle my Capri project.

    We will be praying for your dad Trey!
