He's 75, and very frail. He needs a walker and help getting around. I've watched him fail on a daily basis the past few years. He's diabetic, and has had so many setbacks, I"m amazed he's kept his head above the water. Because of the diabetes, his circulation is very poor. Just over a month ago, because of the poor circulation in his legs, he developed gangrene in 2 toes which had to be amputated. He's been in the hospital for nearly 6 weeks now. My mother and family are really stressed because of all the worrying and continued setbacks in my father's health. He had an arterial replacement in his leg on Tuesday, and through this operation, they could save his foot, which was next on the amputation list. Wednesday morning, he suffered a heart attack. It was only minor, but it was a heart attack nonetheless. And yesterday, he started hallucinating, he didn't recognize my mother or cousin, and was in a terrible state. It's possibly related to the medication they have him on, but we'll only know if it's from the meds after a couple dry-days for him. I just ask that my fellow OTers keep my dad (Bennett) in their thoughts and minds through these tough times for him, and for my family. I'm going tonight to see him, and I really hope he's improved. I'll keep you all posted with any updates. I"m really in a bad state, and haven't been on OT regularly for some time. Thank you.
