As expected, Pop was admitted to Centra State Medical Center and is having trouble regulating his body temperature. Chest X-ray shows some water which (best case) may be start of pneumonia or (worst case) a first sign of body system breakdown. Cat scan shows brain changes consistent with his advanced age but no indication of mini strokes. Blood work is normal.
He is on intravenous antibiotics and was able to eat a little tonight. Also exhibited some drive to survive and responded in focused manner to doctor questions which was a plus compared to last two or three days.
Dianne & I are staying overnight at 2 Manor Drive tonight to keep watch on my mother. Hopefully, a few days away from the stress of keeping up with her will lead to a rebound in Pop’s health. If he doesn’t rally, MD said she will allow him to go home rather than to a nursing home. Assisted living is out of the question given level of day to day medical attention he requires.
