Only just seen this, I am so sorry, Prayers going up for your Dad now and I will offer my Mass for him tomorrow.
Here’s the update:
It has been discovered that in fact Dad has many blood clots in his lungs.
The specialist says some are old and some are new. It is clear to all that things could have been so very much different had these not been identified. The specialist believes that the blood clots would have started to build in Dad’s lungs as far back as the beginning of the year. He certainly hasn’t ‘been right’ since then, so it seems to make sense.
Dad is on oxygen 24 hours a day but he is looking reasonably well and still has his jokey moments. We can’t wait to get him home but the oxygen needs to be sorted for him before that can happen, and his bloods need to be consistantly stable, but Dad is hoping to come out as early as the beginning of next week or mid week. He will remain on the oxygen for a long time, but if the blood clots go, most importantly, those which deter the flow of oxygen throughout his heart and lungs, then Dad hopes to one day not even have to use the oxygen. But we have to keep telling him not to get ahead of himself. We all need to take this one day at a time and deal with things as they develop 🙂
Dad will need monitering and will have a lot of treatment and care from hospital/health workers, once he is home. He has already met some of the people who will be visiting him regularly to do various things for him like take his blood frequently, analyse his oxygen levels etc. Dad is going to be one pampered dude!
Once again, many thanks for your continued concern, prayers and well wishes. God love you, i know i do.
