Dazed and Confused

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.

    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.
