Unfortunately, I haven't seen or talked to dad today...
He had an appointment with Dr. Pandey at the West Clinic, which went very
well according to Mark and Katherine. She was very upbeat and thorough,
which is always nice in these circumstances. She gave some promising
information regarding the treatment options as well as alternative
clinical trials, which I will be looking in to.
After the appointment, they went to lunch and Mark had to go back to
Charlotte. He will be back Martin Luther King weekend with Wendy to
I mentioned yesterday that I had noticed dad was a little more
distracted and moving a little slower. These symptoms became worse this
morning with dad being a little more confused and disoriented, along
with some weakness on his left side. Katherine and mom opted to take him
to the VA, and obtain a CT scan to rule out anything serious that we
needed to be aware of.
After 6 hours at the VA, again causing me to be frustrated with this
hospital, they got in to the CT and were given the results. He has some
swelling and a little bit of blood, but nothing that the consulting
surgeon was concerned with.
His steroids have been adjusted and hopefully, will rectify the symptoms somewhat.
Please continue to pray. Thanks again.
