Prayers and Pixie Dust for my Dad
Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around much lately. Been going through a lot here. A lot of you know my dad Andy. He's been battling some kind of nasty illness for the past few weeks. Finally went to the doctor on Monday, and they're not sure what he has. First thought was a heart problem, but he saw a cardiologist today and the EKG was fine, though they're going to do a stress test next Monday just to make sure. He also had a chest x-ray and a CT scan, which showed moderate fluid in his right lung. So he's on antibiotics and is scheduled for a pleural tap next week. Doctor says it could be anything from bacterial pneumonia to a lung infection to cancer. He's feeling a little bit better from the antibiotics, which is a hopeful sign, but still having shortness of breath and a whole lot of misery. For myself, I'm at the end of my rope. Exhausted from caring for him, terrified, and alone. The family is being NOT helpful, not even involved, and my local friends could care less. Any and all prayers and pixie dust are much appreciated!!!
