Update on my Dad

Postby Former Member » Fri Jan 04, 2013 12:11 pm

I want to start off by giving all of those who have given me words of encouragement this last year a big Thanks. I will continue to need it and the distraction FarmallCub gives me, in the upcoming months.

Dad has multiple health issues, most as a result of medications/treatments he received through the VA in the late 50's early 60's. They thought back then it was a good idea to treat his psoriasis with Methiolated Mercury cream, and then years of Methotrexate. Nothing like heavy metals in your bloodstream. :big smirk:

He is dealing with reduced liver function, kidney function, he has had heart surgery to repair an aortic anurysm and has a titanium valve. He has another one where the arteries from his legs join. He is on blood thinners so his valve don't clot, has internal bleeding and has been given 4 pints of blood the last 4 weeks, but, they can't find the source. This thickens his blood.

Everything they do, affects another issue. so treatment is always the lesser of 2 evils. Dad is 73 and has led a good life. I just received word that he is bleeding again and will need more blood today. :big smirk:

All in all, the DR.'s have given him up to 7 months. our goal right now is to get him back on his boat fishing one more time.

keep us in your prayers. he is not in pain, just slowly going down hill.

Dale is that salt water or fresh water fishing. I pray the Lord to give him the one he wants or even both.

Bill, that would be fresh water fishing :big afro:

Dad has a 24' pontoon boat that is rigged out just for fishing. We fish lake chicamagua (Tn River) below the Watts Bar dam most of the time. Crappie, catfish, redfins, shellcrackers, rockfish (stripers), and even spoonbills.

Does not matter what or if we catch, Dad don't eat them. LOL

He has me and 4 or 5 friends that go up to 3 times a week, regardless the weather, as long as 3 of us are on the boat.

IF, we get him home, he will make it to the water. :big afro: :big afro:

Dale,

Thoughts and prayers with you, your Dad and family. Good you could spend the time you have fishing with him, many people can't say they had that opportunity, I hope you are able to wet a few more hooks!
