Quick Update

about my dad.

Night before last he became very agitated and uncontrollable. I called the non-emergency fire department number and asked for assistance to get him back into bed. Once they evaluated the situation they called an ambulance. It took five fit men to finally restrain him on a guerney to take him to the emergency room because he was impossible for them to control.

A CT scan showed a previously unknown brain tumor as well as hemorrhaging in the brain. He is now in the Kaiser Hospital.

My mom had a good night's sleep (first in months) and spent yesterday and this morning resting. She seems to be feeling better.

We will go to the hospital to "visit" Dad this afternoon. (My brother and sister have been there since yesterday.)

We don't think it will be much longer, but he's surprised us at every turn (he didn't read the rules).
