Poppop is sick. Very sick. He went to the ER last night because he was lethargic, weak and pale. The ER ran blood work, x-rays and CT scans. They told me he is dehydrated, has a lung infection and his blood levels are down. Way down. They also found a HUGE mass in his abdomen. And by Huge I mean that when we lifted his shirt we can SEE it from the outside. Yeah. Why didn't the nursing home TELL ME?!?!?!?!?!?!?
After all this is done I will be having a nice long talk with them about this, as I believe that constitutes neglect.
Anyway.....he had two blood transfusions so far and may need more. We wont know for sure if the mass is his cancer has come back since we don't want to put him through any unnecessary procedures to find out for sure.
The ER doc told me if the IV fluids and blood transfusions don't perk him up then I "need to get prepared".
I bawled all the way home and for hours last night. All I can do right now is pray and cry and then pray some more.
Forgive me if I am not around for awhile.....Poppop is my priority.
