Just another quick post.
Over the weekend my father developed a touch of pneumonia (!), which the doctors attributed to his staying in bed for too long, and not working on clearing his lungs as is recommended after surgery (see the details here.).
Also he’s running a slight fever, which they feel is due to an infection. At this point they are administering antibiotics and an Infectious Disease specialist is supposed to see him today.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more. Talk to you soon.
Update (03/30/09 9:57EST): Dad had a good night last night. They’ve determined that his white blood cell count is low and are looking into treating it. More information as I know. TTFN!
03/30/2009 2:15PM (EST): I just spoke with my sister (the Controller). I was misinformed about the white blood cell count situation. It was up, now it is going down, which is a good thing! They are still trying to determine what the infection is all about, but, my father is feeling much better today, so hopefully this was just a “blip”!
