BP is up, temp is down, heart rate is down...all on his own. He went back under sedation because he started biting his tubes, but he seems to be maintaining all this good stuff without any medicine (no vasopressors, etc.) Swelling is down, color is returning, and he has maintained his sinus rhythm all night. The only bad thing is that his kidney function took a pretty bad hit.

(Directly from my FB status).

He probably needs dialysis. I'd rather that, though, than 6 feet under.

You have a lot on your plate....Been there and it isn't fun.....Keep your faith...But take it from someone that knows...Get some rest, you can't be any help to any one if you get sick....You and your family are in my prayers and I have thought of you often in the past few days....

Sphinx, I'd hug you but my arms don't stretch that far.

Sounds like your father is improving. I was, for all purposes, a total bitch at some of the nurses and one doctor when Lexi was in ICU. They can't advocate for themselves that's why family is so important. And that nurse is lucky she only had to deal with you.

Now as far as the rest of you go, you will do your father absolutely no good if you don't take care of your mental, physical and emotional health as well. That's my lecture for the day.

Keep us posted.

I'm trying to keep myself afloat and take care of my Mom at the same time. I seem to devolve into tears everytime I leave that hospital. He told my Aunt (whose there today) "Help me" mouthed it really. That was enough for me to fall apart.

He has developed a descended belly.

Someone tell me what that is and an explanation? I was going to ask, but I've got about 50 things happening at once currently. They're watching it. He's still in renal failure, but we're all watching the slowly improving signs. But we're all agreeing on one thing: we try to not show any happiness or be happy for fear that the other shoe is about to drop.

New nurses tonight and tomorrow. And the one did apologize to us for what she did yesterday, and she even asked me how I was holding up. She's back in the babe category.

This is just all so sudden it has to be just shocking. I am still sending my thoughts and prayers.

I don't know if I'm in shock anymore so much as I am terrified. The more I understand the medical shit going on, the more I'm realizing how truly messed up this all is. He might also have C-Diff (?) so we're all in gowns and gloves now.

Again, thank you to everyone sending thoughts and prayers. I truly, and deeply, appreciate it.
