Chronic Illness Day
I’m sitting in the ICU waiting room waiting for visiting hours. My dad has been admitted for three days and is in bad shape. He’s a man who has numerous chronic diseases. At his advanced age, his heart problems are serious.
He’s had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted years ago. There have been occasional periods where he had adjustments. This time has been the worst. Numerous times his pacemaker has been failing or reacting too slow.
As he passes out he gets injured. There is now a wound that is in awful shape. So many times the nurses have rushed in as he has pre heart attack events. The exterior defibrillator has to be used. What a scary thing!
I’m a little slower to respond to comments but I’ll be able to soon. If you can, please say a prayer for him. God bless.
