    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.

      I join in all the masses, rosaries and prayers being offered for your Dad as well as you and your Mother. This must be a terribly frightening time for all of you! What you speak of is so serious. Your dear mother is lucky to have you by her side to help her through. We will all continue to hold all of you in prayer.

    4. Wow, that is a long time to have clots in the lungs and not even know. He is lucky that nothing bad happened to him in all that time! Prayers will continue!

    5. Renee says:

      I have been following your dad’s progress on Facebook. Be assured of my prayers for you all. I will be at vespers tonight for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, and will especially remember your dad. Blessings!

      I am worried. Can you let us know that you are all hopefully ok? I pray that God stays by your side, holding you up, if needed. I know that none of this is easy

    9. Suzanne says:

      Glad to hear your Dad is home! Ongoing prayers for him to have little anxiety also as I know that just makes matters worse. Try to be at peace, Deb.

      We have been reading all your very kind comments on Debs blog, words can,t express how grateful Peter and i are for all your prayers ,Rosaries and Masses being offered for Peter, it means so much to us , so wonderful to know that people in different parts of the world , people we will never meet show so much love. Peter has had a good day and is much better than he was , he was very ill, we know it will take Months to recuperate but he is getting good health care with lots of meds, warfarin ,oxygen etc. our dear Deb is wonderful, nothing too much trouble , also our very loving Granddaughter we are truly blessed.the Good Lord is watching over us . Our prayers go out for all of you God Bless, Christine and Peter
