Life


Two days ago dad felt uncomfortable. Sent him to A&E and discovered an artery sending blood all over his body is blocked and a clot has formed between his kidneys. The clot was growing fast and operation was absolutely necessary before the clot swells more and erupts but he refused to go because there is a 10 to 15% chance that due to the surgical procedure and blood flooding his already weak kidneys, he may need dialysis. Or, his already failing lungs may not recover their functions once they remove the breathing tube after the op, causing him to live on the respirator for the rest of his life.

We have to make the decision for him to take the chance and go through the op ... but he demands that the doctors "do not resusitate" should his lungs fail.

As we respect his decision, as we pray that he will recover without hindrance, we are trying to come to terms with the ordeal.

The docs want to operate but they cannot. He has a fever. He has an infection as blood tests show. Op is schedule for Monday, if the infection clears. An emergency op will be performed if his clot grows further. Waiting is painful. Watching dad's shrivelled form, with all the tubes and plugs and machines ... is very very painful.

I have been living with dad for a long time. I am his caregiver. I am his fave child. I cannot deal with the possibility of losing him ...

Hope it went well with your dad's op. My dad had a heart valve replaced last month. It came totally out of the blue and it is a big shock. He should be back on the golf course in a few weeks.
