I'm very sorry to read of this development. At least he was able to make his wishes clear, and it sounds like he really wants to fight. Still praying....

Jen, I experienced a similar situation this past summer, but it was with both parents at the same time. I completely understand the exhaustion and stress - but I know you have the strength to get through anything. Hang in there and know you aren't alone.

Things are better today. My dad is stable and getting all the treatments he needs. We found the source of infection is pneumonia. That explains yesterday's precipitous drop in vitals and difficulty breathing. He's being treated for that. His hemoglobin is up but his bone marrow has still not reactivated. We don't really expect that until next weekend or the one after. He's getting all the nutrients and regular medicine he needs. CT showed no bleeding. He is alert and responsive, just lightly sedated. His body is working on healing. Baby steps. My family remains strong. Brother and sister stayed over last night. I'm on night duty tonight thru the storm with my nephew.

Keep praying.

It is the ups and downs of ICU. We brought in a family photo of all us in Disney over NYE 2015. This way every nurse or doctor or therapist who treats him gets to meet the posse. He's not just another 85 yr old. He's Grandpa Mohawk and Dr Bob to them. (I call him "Papa" sometimes to be sweet.)

While I am mainly an avid lurker, I always look forward to your trip reports. I know how hard it can be dealing with an ill parent. Wishing Grandpa Mohawk, and the rest of your lovely family much strength and hope... -C
