I appreciate all the well wishes on the updates I’ve been posting about my father. I remain mostly off social media, so I’ve seen them but not responded or even marked an emoji reaction. I’m also not checking email, private messages, or direct messages and am instead putting all my energy into family.
As I write this he remains in critical condition and we continue to wait. There will be more tests today. Hopefully, the TPA – clot busting meds he was put on Thursday night – will have taken care of the clot. But another several long days of waiting are in our future. My father is fighting and he can be incredibly determined.
This means the situation is grave but not hopeless. So pardon my absence. I noticed several private messages have piled up on Facebook and I hope to get to them this weekend or next week. But in the process of dealing with my father I also have to take care of myself something that I have not been doing very well the last few days.
