Hey everyone, Just wanted to y'all an update on Dad.

He has had a rough start to the year. So far he has been in the hospital two times and is currently still in. The first time was pneumonia and congestive heart failure. That was 2 weeks ago in Jan. Then, Anna and I had to take him again on Feb 2 because he was/is sleeping and not waking up.

He also didn't urinate for about 18 hours. He still hasn't really awakened yet, but as of last night he will respond a little to you. In fact last night was the first time that he opened his eyes (just for a second) when asked. He will give you one word answers (in the past two days). They do have a catheter in him and he is making urine.

The physicians really don't know what is wrong but are guessing that he is having either a reaction to one of his meds or an interaction of the meds. We suspect that since his kidneys aren't working too well, that his paxil is concentrating in his blood making the drug work alot more.

He also is getting the pneumonia because he is having a hard time with the swallowing. We are having him evaluated today for a feeding tube. He really hasn't eaten since Friday, with the exception of 2 bowls of soup.

So we shall see what happens. They are probably going to discharge him today or within the next few days, since he is really only sleeping and doesn't meet the criteria for being in the hospital.

Will let you know what is going on with his condition. At this point I don't think the long-term outlook is very good.

Love and hugs to all of you,
