I don't pray on a daily basis but I do believe that asking for prayers does help.
My dad is sick.
And for those of you who know me or have read previous blog posts, I have no relationship with my mom so my dad is all I have.
My eyes are just about swollen shut right now. Not sure how I am even typing.
Dad is back in the hospital.
For at least a year now my dad has been sick. No energy (none) and constant dizziness. He has been to his general practitioner, 4 neurologists, a hematologist, etc, etc and they just can't figure out what is wrong with him. He had a stroke about 3 weeks ago and he has gone downhill fast since then. He isn't eating. At all. He is losing from 3 to 4 pounds a week. He can't sit up or stand up b/c it makes him dizzy. Earlier this week they found out that when he stands up his blood pressure drops to 60/40. NOT normal. So I had high hopes that they could just fix that and all would be well. Nope. He is being readmitted into the hospital b/c he can't walk and he can hardly feel the right side of his body.
I am devastated. Actually, there are no words to express how I feel.
Somebody MUST figure this out and fix him.
I guess one of the doctors mentioned ALS tonight and that is what has me in a panic. It can't be. It just can't.
Heading to see him first thing in the morning and that just can't come soon enough.
Please keep him in your prayers, I would really appreciate it.
