Well, Dad is still the same per the doctors and nurses. They don’t tell me too much information. His bladder isn’t working the right way, and still has some sort of infection in his system. It’s been almost 8 weeks of being in the hospital. Dad is getting very lonely and bored. Does anybody live in the Sacramento, CA area. Anyways, to all those Father’s out there Happy Fathers Day tomorrow!!!! Thanks, Kim

Hi Everyone,

Well, my dad now has staph colonizing in his system. He doesn’t want us to come and see him until he is not contagious. He’s such a good dad. The nurse told me today that he was communcating by writing on his paper, and was getting up to go on a walk today. She said the labs looked better today. I got the wonderful packet from the foundation in the mail. I can’t wait to share all the great information with my dad. He still can’t swallow yet, so he is being fed through the feeding tube. He was hospitalized on April 29th. Hope all is well with everybody. Take Care, Kim

I am not sure if the pneumonia infection is hampering the positive effects of the IVIG. He didn’t do the plasma because he told Stanford he didnt’ want to do it. Thank you for your prayers and I will keep you and your family in my prayers as well. Kim

Hi, This is his 3 time getting pneumonia in the last 6 weeks. He does have a resp therapist and has been on breathing treatments. He has a Trache that was put in almost a week ago because his breathing was bad again, but then they keep taking him off of the vent and just giving him a little oxygen. He had the IVIG the first 2 weeks and it didn’t seem to do anything for him. I know this is a get better slowly illness, but it seems like every day he takes a few steps forward and then has to take a few steps back. I am so worried about him and hoping that I am doing everything that I can for my father. Any advice would help. Thanks, Kim
