My dad, everybody.

My dad has had me up and down every five minutes. My legs hurt so bad. This is my third all nighter at the hospital with him this week and I don’t know how much longer I can do this. Ugh, I just want my dad to be better! He’s not even letting me leave his side. He’s never like this, so I know he has to be in a lot of pain and he’s probably scared of what’s to come. Three major surgeries in five days is so much on the body. We came to the hospital Monday prepared for one, not three. The doctors are expecting him to need one more surgery and if that ends up being the case, they’ll put a stent in to keep the hole that keeps opening up inside his abdomen closed. Thank God my brother will be here in the morning or I really don’t know what my mom and I will do. I just want his heart rate to be normal and for him to heal up from his surgery. :(

Spending the night at the hospital looking after my dad. Gotta pull an all nighter again.

The good news is, he came off the ventilator!

The bad news, the doctors are expecting him to need another surgery and if he does they will be putting a stent in to keep the hole that keeps opening up closed.

My brother took emergency leave and his flight will arrive in the morning so at least it won’t just be my mom and I pulling shifts at the hospital.

well? can he????

Dad had to have ANOTHER emergency surgery today…. He made it through. Now he’s on a ventilator, though. I am just fucking drained both physically and emotionally.
