Good day everybody, I'm back.


I had been on vacation to France and Italy, which was wonderful. Sadly, BF and I had to rush home after my sister informed me Dad had been hospitalised and is currently in intensive care.

On Tuesday he woke up discovering blood on his pillow - he cycled to the GP, who referred him to his lung doctor (he has COPD). Lung specialist wasn't too sure if hospitalisation was needed, but as it was running late, the lung clinic was closed and they had to bring someone in. Dad got a tube in his throat for an endoscopy, but he took to it so badly he coughed up a lot of blood - and the staff took him to the IC directly.

His heart is clean, he has no tumors and no infections - but they did find two clots in his lungs. They put a coil to stop one of the bleeds, but they couldn't reach the other one.

I arrived at around 5 o-clock in the hospital, Dad was glad to see me. He couldn't speak because of the tube, but he could sign. I showed him some vacation photos and Dad expressed malcontent at the tube in his throat.
Tube was removed and all was looking well, they were thinking of putting him into regular care, and then he started coughing up again. This afternoon they put a coil on the other bleed as well. I got to see him a few hours ago. He's still on the breather and kept asleep, but he had a good colour skin and was looking healthier and thinner.

Things are a bit rough here but we are having good hope that he will get out of the IC soon.

That sounds just like Ed, Bonny. Suffers from COPD, wakes up with blood on his pillow and CYCLES to the GP. Please pass on best wishes from Julie and me.

It's DED to a tee. Thank you all for the well wishes.

At the moment, things are looking pretty OK - he's on the vent and under narcosis, but his stats are good.

Dad's conscious and no longer in the vent, so he can sort of speak now. He's as sharp as a tack and is worrying about taxes and paying the bills - even remembering exact amounts. He remembers what he did the day before so that's all working. Just called the IC and he is now sitting in a chair.

DED made a great step - as of yesterday he's no longer in ICU!! The experience is still hard on him, he cannot stand up and even moving around in bed is hard.

DED came home yesterday but he's completely exhausted all the time, he requires a lot of help getting about his business.
