Well, reporting another bump is really not the post we want to be posting today, but alas we have no choice, because dad is once again in the hospital. His fever was elevated enough last night to warrant him being admitted.
His body is still struggling to fight off this darn infection. They've had to go easy on the antibiotics in order to keep his kidneys functioning correctly, and it just hasn't been enough to take care of the infection. They have now called in for back-up, and have him working with the infectious disease specialists. Hopefully they will be able to pinpoint the bug giving him trouble so they can get rid of it once and for all. Dad thinks that if they can't figure it out he wants to get that doctor from "House" on the case. So dad's sense of humor is still intact, and that's a good thing.
There is other good news to report too. He is eating and drinking better all the time, which is fabulous. The infectious disease guys are running lots of tests on him right now, and have ruled out of couple of things that would have really been trouble, so that's encouraging too.
We will keep you posted on his progress. Thanks to all of you for loving and caring about our dad. Your prayers, notes and phonecalls keep us all going.
