Today Dad is about the same.  Yesterday, we got in touch with a hospice and they are coming today to do an evaluation and hopefully we can get him home this evening.

Last evening his blood pressure was very low 70/30 and his oxygen stats were bad 89%.  This morning the BP was up 79/42 (don't know the O2).  Sara said his urine was also decreased, I think that maybe a blood clot is blocking the catheter, that has happened many times in the past and we freaked out because we thought that his kidneys were shutting down.  I will see today and get the nursing staff to flush it if the stream hasn't gotten back to a more regular amount. 

Sara also said that he had huge poops last night (most likely because of the antibiotics) and was moaning and groaning.  They gave him some xanex (sp?), but not any real pain meds.  I can't wait for the hospice so we can get his pain in control.

I think this was about all that I know for today.

Love and hugs,

Mary et.al.
