Default Things Aren't Looking Good for my Father in Law

My Father in Law is in bad shape.

81 years old, has Parkinson's, Pulmonary Fibrosis, and had been battling pneumonia, and down to 125 lbs.

Doctors told him he had two options since he was aspirating when he ate and drank. Have a feeding tube put in, or basically wait to drown from the pneumonia.

Early last week they had an spot open up, so he had the feeding tube put in.

Late in the week, his BP crashed and he passed out a couple times, along with falling several times.

Got put in the hospital and they started pumping him with antibiotics. This caused him to develop, or exposed that he was a carrier for C Diff and brought on by that anitbiotics. Of course, this has to be treated by yet a different antibiotic.

They then did a biopsy on his lungs and found cancer.

Not sure what the next steps are, but he is so weak at this point that I am preparing myself to the fact he may not make it home, or if he does it may be with hospice.

Could use your prayers for Bill, and for his wife Jenny, my wife Donna and my daughters.

So damn hard to see him laying there barely able to communicate, and not able to get up and move.

Sorry Darin. I hate to hear about stuff like this. All of us will face the end but I guess everyone wants a few more good days no matter how many they get. Seeing a strong man in bad shape is one of the hardest things to cope with. Prayers sent man.

Thanks everyone.

He looked and sounded better tonight. Told my wife that after seeing him last night I was thinking the talks of him going to a rehab facility were not realistic.

Maybe he will pull through this patch after all, but at 81 I doubt he will recover enough to be able to have enough strength to walk or do many things for himself, but he has already beaten the Dr's odds at this point since they told him 6 years ago he had prob 1.5 years to live.
