Dad update 11-10-08
Dad is still in the hospital and will be spending at least one more night there. His platelets dropped again today, so the doctors are trying a new drug and might have to do a transfusion if the numbers get much lower. Dad is still very weak and gets completely out of breath if he has to sit up or stand up. His blood sugar level is also a new concern. He actually had to have insulin shots and is on a diabetic diet now. It shocked me a little when I showed up at his room today and there were rules posted on the door. No outside food unless approved, wash your hands before entering, no plants or flowers, etc. It's pretty hard seeing Dad in this condition, but his spirits are still good and he tries to make everyone laugh as much as possible. I'll post more if we get any news.
