Dad Update
FIrst off, I want to thank everyone for their kind words and best wishes.  It means so much to me, I can barely express it.

Dad seems to be doing a little better.  THis morning was bad.  Around 8AM he had one of those chills, where he's ice cold and shivering violently.  I had to put two extra blankets on before he was able to warm up.  He tried to eat breakfast once he did, but he had no appetite.  So I made him some tea instead.

He took another nap, and woke up at noon feeling much better.  Not such a fog in his brain, he said.  So far, it's stayed that way.  We both had some soup for lunch, and then we both had naps.  Lord knows I needed one, I think I've slept 3 hours in the past two days. 

I'm also pretty worried about myself, I have to admit.  Last time Dad was seriously ill, about two months before my mom died, I caught what he had right away, as did my sister.  She was better in a day, he in three or four, and I was sick for a month.  With the diabetes my healing time is always so slow, so I started to panic when I realized how sick he was.  But so far, I've been mostly okay.  I threw up this morning, but I think that had more to do with my anxiety, and the enormous amount of cat vomit I had to clean up.  I've been a little queasy here and there, but nothing major.  I think it's helped that I'm already on an antibiotic, have been since last Friday.  (Another one of my stupid skin infections, unfortunately.)

ANyhow, I'm trying to be hopeful about Dad.  He's definitely feeling a little better, and he certainly looks a little better.  If he's okay tomorrow morning, we'll go the nearby lab to do the blood tests the doctor wants.  He's seeing her again on Friday, and she needs to have the results by then.

Once again, thank you all for your support and prayers.  Keep praying and keep thinking good thoughts if you can, though.  Every little bit helps.

I hope he continues to get better. You're in my prayers.

Thank you, sweetie. I really appreciate it. *Huge hugs*

As least he's feeling a little better, that's good! He's in my thoughts though *hugs*

I spoke too soon, unfortunately. It's been a rough morning around here.

Thank you, Shelley.

Hey girl, I'm glad your dad seems to be feeling better.

I will cross my fingers that you don't get sick! :::hugs:::

Thank you, sweetie. But I think I spoke to quick and jinxed it. It's been a rough morning around here.
