Dad is still in the hospital though we are hoping he will come home today. His heart rate and blood pressure are not cooperating with each other, so to make a long story short, they have rearranged his heart meds in hope that this will bring his heart rate down without bottoming out his BP.
Its been a long week. Hospital visits where you stay in the room waiting for a doctor to come in to find out some news are exhausting. That was Friday. I sat in the chair in Dad ‘s room from 9am until we finally heard something at 4pm. When I got up to use the bathroom, I told my son not to let a doctor leave if they should happen to come in.
Mom hasn’t seen Dad in two days. Friday is of course hair day, and I went in early (before her hair appointment) so I could ‘catch’ the doctor and find out what was happening. That led to the all day event of sitting in the chair. When I got home, Mom was angry she hadn’t gone with me. She thought I left after her hair appointment and just didn’t take her with me. I tried to explain I left at 8:30am and she wasn’t even dressed yet.
Then yesterday- the fog was so heavy we couldn’t even see across the street. Dad called and said he would be there at least until Sunday morning. I asked him if he would mind if we stayed home and he was fine with that. He knows I’ve missed a lot at church and needed to get ready for Sunday.
So Mom missed seeing him for two days. I’m praying he’ll be able to come home today.
