I spoke to soon


Good morning well I spoke to soon about dad, so much for him improving he was taken back to hospital yesterday morning by the ambos. He was so unwell he vomited about 5 times, each time Sandra tried to get him to use the oxygen as his oxygen level was around 76, it did finally go up when he was at the hospital but when he was being moved from the ambos stretcher/bed to a hospital bed it dropped right down again.

We do know the Xray he had last Friday showed a cracked rib and fluid in the lung, mum rang the Dr's yesterday morning to get the results only to be told that his doctor wouldn't be in till today and they didn't know if anyone else could look at the results.

Well while the ambos were there Sandra rang the doctors surgery and told them the ambos wanted to know what the Xray showed, this triggered a changed in attitude and they couldn't be more helpful. Someone from the surgery rang mum yesterday afternoon to see how dad was doing, she told them he had been taken too hospital and wasn't in a good way at all.

Sandra of course went with dad to the hospital and she went back yesterday afternoon, she had to leave and go get her girls from school.

I am expecting mum to ring me this morning with an update.

I really don't fathom your health care system there. Unfortunately, we are well down the road to joining you, though. As always I will be praying for your family.

Oh no, just when I thought he was getting better. Hope the hospital stabilizes him so he can get on with his recovery.

I am sorry to learn it is so bad. I hope to goodness they get some sort of grip on exactly what is wrong and come up with a plan for him. How awful for him and all of you.
