Prayers For My Fil Update 12/29/12
Posted 28 December 2012 - 09:15 AM
FIL is now on "comfort care." It may be a few hours or a few days before his heart gives up. My BIL arrived from California yesterday afternoon and our daughter will arrive this afternoon. He indicated he wanted his oxygen mask off yesterday afternoon so he could talk, and boy, did he. He started talking about 2pm and was still going when we left at 10pm. Up to that point, he'd hardly been able to get out an intelligible word. Most of the talking was silly questions he was asking us, over and over again. When we tried to steer him to talking about his life, he'd go right back to the questions. Sometimes it was funny and sometimes it was frustrating. We came home to get some sleep last night while my BIL stayed with his dad. Heading back to the hospital this morning.
Lloyd is holding on. He is alert and conversing when he is awake but he sleeps most of the day and night. Not eating much but drinking coffee and water. We have a health aid from 7 pm to 7 am right now, until my BIL goes back to California and then it will be around the clock.
