Dusty’s father was placed back in the hospital again. The original blog is here

He placed this in his message to me.

“They re-admitted my father to the hospital and its readily apparent that he’s going down hill because of many complications including now the onset of dementia. His confusion is more than just the infection or fever.

We all know the end to this journey; we just don’t know when the good Lord will call my father home.”

“Today is a extra prayer day.”

Lumberjocks,

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. I am humbled.

Today is a better day for my father who remains in the hospital. His confusion is less as a result of lowering his fever and getting the infection back under control.

Besides the serious injury’s he suffers from Advanced Parkinson disease so this complicates things more than normal.

Slowly we move forward. His comfort comes from the caring and prayers.

I will keep you posted.

Even in dark times you all give me hope and provide the light to show the way.

I extend a heart felt thank you along with appreciation. I remain humbled and full of gratitude for your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you seems so inadequate.

I offer it anyways!

-- Dusty

Dusty,

Sometimes the painkillers, can through a persons mind off balance.

I’ve experienced seeing it happen to Barb’s Dad when he was recovering from surgery. He came out of it later.

Keep your chin up.

You know I’m thinking and praying for you and your father Dusty. Dick is right, pain killers can really, especially in an older person, seem to befuddle them even more so than a regular adult. Prayers. mike

Dick, @ jockmike2

Both of you are right about the painkillers. Although, his pain killers are limited because of other factors they are accessing they still are a factor.

Today, he was released from the hospital and returned to the “swing” room in the extended rehab nursing home.

They found a blood clot and are treating it with medications.

He still experiences a fair amount of confusion and periods of disorientation. Time will tell of this is directly related to the medications and trama or other factors such as his Parkinson disease advancing.

We all remain faithful and with hope, and are great full for all the prayers and support.

-- Dusty
