    He now has pneumonia? and infection in his intestines and his lungs as well as the thrush infection. They are doing a test on his lungs today. He has said that he is going to fight this thing all the way. He asked to be put into a chair, they will do that today.
    We are going down tomorrow so I will know more then. He is just so weak I pray that he can find the strength to fight this.

    Just got off the phone with my sister. My Dad had a bad night. He was combative and pulled out all the iv's so they sedated him. Today he is tied down. The lung test came back, his lungs are a mess. He signed a DNR order which my step mother revoked. We don't know how long it can stay revoked. DH is leaving work now it takes him 1 hr 15 min to get home, it will take us another 1hr45min. to get to Dad's hospital. DH will make the call to the redcross to bring DD home from Afghanistan.
    I pray he holds on until we can get there.
