As I sit here and listen to the thunder outside as a storm
approaches and I wait for 2am to get here to I can begin my 26+ hour trip to
Austin, TX for this year’s Big Android BBQ I thought I would write a blog post.
My dad came home tonight. They were supposed to
do an MRI on his liver, but he’s too big to fit into the machine. The hospital
he was at doesn’t have an open MRI. So, since they couldn’t do that, he has
been stable and they’ve run all the tests they can on him, they sent him home.
They seem to think that these episodes are stress related. They also think he’s
depressed somewhat. They have him on anti-depressants for like a month. He’s
also on some breathing meds because he’s been congested and having trouble
breathing. We weren’t really sure it was a good idea to be sending him home,
but after we talked to his regular doctor, we began to feel a little better. He
said if there’s nothing else they can do for him it’s better that he comes
home. If he’s in the hospital he’s more likely to get an infection or catch
something. So he was sent home with a new collection of medication to add to
his old collection. My mom is going to call his doctor tomorrow to make an
appointment for Monday as that’s the soonest he can get him in. Other than that
things are the same. However my school schedule changed again. My second class
was cancelled, so I had to send both of my textbooks back, the lady in the
textbook department told me I have to confirm my schedule again and I’ll have
new books shipped to me. I have the option to have them overnighted for an
extra $25 and I’m going to do that. This way when I get back from Texas my
books will be here waiting for me. So anyway, that’s about all from me for tonight.
I probably won’t post again until next week.
