Topic: Update on my dad

Hi everyone

Dad has been admitted again.....
He  has become really weak, urine is dark, he can't keep any food down, we think that there is another blockage in the duodenum or the bile stent is blocked.  He is so frail and fragile, i keep on asking myself if this is it?

His bp seems ok though, 106 over 76.  They were supposed to do a barium swallow but say he is too weak, dad's on a drip because of the severe dehydration.  He seems so thin, about the weight of my 6 year old, i just don't know how much longer he can hang on for.....

Please keep us in your prayers.....

lots of love

Michelle

Michelle.....I am crosssing my fingers for the hydration to do wonders for your Dad.  This then should allow the physicians to evaluate the current situation. 
My heart is with you and I am sending all my best wishes,
