Dad Golden Home From The Hospital

Last evening Bernie and I brought Dad home from the hospital.
There to meet us when we arrived home at eight PM was Betty and John just getting Mom Golden out of the car.
Our parents were both glad to be home!

Now Dad Golden had insisted on me to take some hospital pictures for the blog.

Here he is enjoying [NOT!] the good hospital food..

Here is Dad Golden with his favourite son in law, Bernie.
All four of his son in laws are his favourite. John[Betty] , Eric[Gracey],
Ross [Gail] and of course that Bernie[Terry]..
Dad Golden talking to his favourite daughter Gail, who lives near Toronto.
Of course all six of his daughters are Dad Golden's favourite....Betty, Terry, Sandra, Gracey, Gail and Karen...

Oh! Oh!...Dad Golden with the daughter who has been nagging him for a long time!!

Betty and John with Dad Golden who is making a face at the camera!
"Please get this over with! I want to get into the apartment, into my bed and sleep!"

Together again....Dad and Mom Golden..
We ALL thank you for your prayers!.........Love Terry

Roses For Dad Golden From Amrita

Dad Golden is still in the hospital. He is all right when he is sitting in a chair or laying on the bed but as soon as he gets on his feet, his blood pressure goes really low. The doctor's are still trying to find out why this is and it is worrying the family. Mom is doing well at Betty's and is getting a real rest but she seems to want to be at home too. We don't want her to be alone though.

Bernie and I will be going up later about three to see Dad and I hope that I will have a better report on him by then...

My friend Amrita... made this lovely bouquet of roses for Dad Golden and for Felsiol's mother, Mom Ljung and for a few more of her ill friends...It was so thoughtful of her and I just thought that she wouldn't mind if I shared them with you all and thank you for all of your prayers...Love Terry

Dad Golden in The Hospital

Yesterday morning a 4 am Dad Golden fell and mom had to call for a ambulance.
We spent the day in emergency where the blood test and heart test showed the doctor that Dad had a very low blood pressure and so it was decided that he should be admitted to the hospital to see what is causing it.
Now Dad could have been prescribed one too many pills at the Hamilton Hospital in regards to his fluids.
He is already on a blood pressure pill and also a water pill, so the doctor is going to see if this third one is one too many.
After spending the whole day in the hospital until about eight at night, I was a little too tired to come to the computer other than to read all the loving prayers said for my dad, and I do appreciate this because I could feel, during the whole day the calming affect they had on both me and my dad.
He is usually so impatient and hard to deal with when waiting in the hospital,I must tell you.
All in all, yesterday went all right.
When there was finally an available room, the nurses took him upstairs and there he was given a large private room and a comfortable bed....and supper!
Bernie and I went to his drugstore and got a copy of all the pills that Dad is taking and when they should be taken.
We gave this to the nurse who then will give it to the doctor to study and hopefully, with all of this straitened out, Dad will be feeling a lot better and will not be getting dizzy and falling.
When I phoned the hospital at six this morning, they informed me that Dad had spent a good night ..sleeping.
And when I phoned again at ten, they said he was having a good morning.
I am kind of thankful that the visiting hours don't start until two.
This gives me a chance to write this update.
Thanking you all again....Love Terry

PS Mom Golden is staying at Betty's. I really don't want to take her to see Dad because she is so weak lately and I really think that she would pick up a germ or two if I took her to the hospital.
