So as you know, my Dad has been battling a very unique form if Pancreatic Cancer for the last 8 yrs.. Well because these rumors are so unique, they cause the organs they are attached to, to atrophy. Well so far, he has hf a liver left, one kidney, 1/3 of his intestines.. But the rest is atrophied. So he has to have predigested food introduced to the intestinal tract, since the stomach is basically dead. This requires that every six months the feeding tube be replaced with a fresh, sterile one. Well he went last week to Denver to do this, and somehow they figured our, that his stomach has been decaying inside him, so he went for emergency surgery to have that and half his liver removed. He caught a nasty septic infection... So now he's been in the ICU for the last four days.. Three days ago, my Grandpa whom suffers from Parkinson's fell on Ice, and broke his collar bone. He now has a marrow infection.. And is also in the ICU.. Three rooms down from my Dad. So my poor Stepmom is running back and forth between her father and her husband.. We're all taking shifts sitting with them, and trying to be there for both if them, and maintain our jobs.. It's been very difficult.. Please keep my family in your hearts and thoughts.. We sure need the support.

I haven't left the hospital in four days... So exhausted... So sad..

    Putting out good thoughts for you and your family, whispering hands. We're going through something similar with my brother-in-law. He's got some kind of serious infection in his system and has been on a breathing machine for four days. It's been touch and go the whole way- every day is nerve wracking. It's a tough way to spend the holidays.

    I hope hope you're finding time for rest and comfort in family and friends. Best wishes.

    So sorry to hear about your dad and grandfather... :cry:

    Last year at this time my dad was going between the emergency room, and the nursing home. He had quadruple bypass surgery 12 years prior, and also had diabetes. He had fallen, and broken his collarbone. The doctor's couldn't even do surgery, because his heart was so damaged, and he passed away right before our eyes. Seeing and hearing my dad take his last breath was the hardest thing any of us have been through...

    May God bless you, and your family in these days ahead...

    Sending (((prayers, strength, and good vibes))) to you and your family... again, I'm "so sorry"... :cry: It's amazing how much strength that's inside of you, during times like this...

    Wish you were here...

    ~RIP Dad

    Again thank you all so much.. So far Dad is now awake and finally speaking sentences that make sense. They think he'll be able to go up to a regular floor Christmas Day. He is so mad that he's " fucking up" our Holliday!! Lmao so my dad!! We're just happy he's pulling through this! Grandpa is still struggling, but he's 91 too! His fever has broken, but they're keeping him in a medical coma, because he wouldn't be still. So at least everything is starting to look up! Thank you all so much for your support. P.S. I finally got to go to sleep today.. I slept all day.. Just barely made it to work on time!
