I was all set to write about Eric LeGrand tonight. Last night’s fundraiser was amazing and I got some really great photos. But things don’t always turn out as planned.
Instead I am at St. Barnabas Hospital with DJ and Aunt Dale waiting to hear what is wrong with my dad. He wasn’t feeling right today so Dave and Dale took him to several doctors appointments during the day to see what was going on. The doctors seemed to think he was okay. They did bloodwork but sent him home thinking perhaps he was dehydrated.
After staying with him for a short time he was getting worse so they decided to call an ambulance and brought him up to the hospital.
I met them up here after work. He seems himself at times and then later very confused and not quite thinking straight. You never want to laugh at a situation like this but at least it brings us some humor as we sit waiting to find out what is going on and he refers to me as his son Chip. For now, we just laugh. He will find it funny when we tell him about it later. Chip’s not even here!!
Right now, he is conscious and he is alert. They plan on admitting him to see what is going on. For now we are just sitting in a very crowded emergency room waiting for a bed to open I guess.
For now, there is no need to worry. It is probably some sort of infection. As we know more, we will keep you posted.

Hey Claire! I just read this. I hope things have settled down and your dad is feeling better.
He seems better Maura. Still not feeling so great but definitely on the mend. thank you.
Prayers for all of you.
Thanks Mrs. Blaesser. He seems to be doing better. Waiting for antibiotics to kick in now.
I hope your dad will be fully recovered soon, Claire. I just stopped by to let you know that I wrote a post today putting your blog on a list of nominees for the Liebster Award. I hope you’ll enjoy it when you have the time. Best wishes for everything to be OK.
Thanks so much Meg. He seems to be on the upswing right now. Thank goodness.
Speedy recovery to your dad. It’s scary when elders get symptoms like that. I hope it’s nothing serious.
Seems to be just an infection so hopefully antibiotics will kick in. Just left the hospital and he was going to try to get some sleep. Thanks for checking in.
Oh no. Please keep us posted and all my best wishes to your dad and your family.
Thanks Deb. He’s in a room getting antibiotics. Fever is down to 100 and now waiting for antibiotics to kick in and get rid of the infection. Thanks so much.
Hi Claire, I hope your Dad is feeling better today. What do they think it is?
Hope everything is OK, I just went through a hospital scare with my son and my heart goes out to you and your family.
Thank you and I hope that your son is on the mend as well. ❤
