Dad Update

Quick Dad update

He is back in the hospital tonight. Has been there since 5ish AM Sunday, Mom drove him in to St. Vincents (closer to where they live now as well as me and Lisa). He went in for the same reason as before, throwing up everything and a sharp pain in the middle of his shoulders.

This time, this hospital did a CT scan and found a lump in his esophagus. Its caused by an artery being wrapped around the wrong way (yup, thats dad) and causing the inflammation.

They are keeping him overnight to keep an eye out and have him on fluids and Prilosec. No news on when he will be sent home.


  1. Sorry to hear he is back in hospital. Hope he gets well soon.

  2. I'm sorry, Rachel. I hope he'll be back home soon.

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry! I hope that he is better and home soon. {{hugs}}

  4. Your dad really is haveing a rough time of it. Hope things improve quickly.
