View Full Version : My Daddy is ill

10-06-2009, 07:55 AM
Hi all. I haven't been on The Dog as much as I like to.

My Daddy has had a series of health issues and that has taken a lot of my time and attention. Since July he has had 12 appts at the VA hospital that I have taken him to.

I am very thankful I have my job at the university and am able to be with him when he needs me most without fear of losing my job. I had over 600 hours of sick leave built up and have used about 113 this year, mostly with Dad.

I did have a shock when I made it back to work yesterday. Seems like I missed the rule that I can't take but 10 days of sick leave for FAMILY. So, now I have to fib a little and take sick leave PERSONAL or annual leave.

Anyway, if you don't see as much of me, know that I am with The Dog in spirit! : )

Please pray for my Dad, Chester C.

Thanks for listening.

Miss Lora

Blessings back to all of you!
My best friend is a nurse and has helped me dress Dad's bandages every day. She is a true blessing.

She and her husband have been our closest friends, closer than blood, for 22 years. Her husband and our bestest bud died last month very unexpectedly. We are all at a complete loss, Eddie included.

But she is finding comfort in helping my Dad, as she loves him very much as well.

sorry to gush, but it's been hard and your thoughts are very well taken. I am going to print this to show Dad how others care for him and are sending prayers and good thoughts his way.

God bless,
Miss Lora

Well, Dad was just touched by the prayers and LOVED the pic of the boy and dog praying. he was thrilled and said he was going to go through the list of folks and pray back for them as well.

He has taken an unexpected turn and landed in the hospital. We just got back and will go again tomorrow when they let us visit. He's in coronary care.

I'll remember to take this thread printed out with the boy and the dog too, as it will really cheer him up.

Thanks to all and please keep Chester C. in your prayers.

God bless,
and eddie

We thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. We kept you all posted up with his cards in his room. He has been moved to a room NOT in CCU. Dialysis removed over 9 liters of fluid from him and he's feeling much better. Still to be determined what they'll do about his heart.

my bro and sis have come to visit him, so i'm home being a little normal again. miss you guys!

raguel! good to hear from you!
(You must be an angel) keep him in your prayers today especially. he's going to have his heart fixed today, hopefully, but the surgery will likely damage his kidneys further. He is in good spirits and ready to be healed.

Keep us posted on his progress please.

Prayers for you and your father . Really hope all goes well

heart cath showed left main artery needs bypass 90% blocked, others on left 70-80% blocked, one smaller on right 100% blocked, nothing they can do about that one. his candidacy for bypass is i guess not optimal....kidney issues, diabetic foot wound, annurism in aeoritic abdomen, peripheral artery disease.

unbelievably, but believably for Dad, he's optimistic and said this won't get him down. he knows he has been lifted in prayer.

thanks to all,
