Hope they are ahead of it. He doesn't need anything dragging him back down right now. Glad he ate well! That sounds promising!

 

Agreed!

As long as it was caught early, he should be able to kick that with no problem! 

Glad he ate well!

Thanks, I do my best, but this wasn't my observation, as 2 days ago he seemed much better. I did know yesterday he went back a step or 2, but it was he who called the Dr this morning, then called me for a ride there.  Mom's been really negative towards him again, saying he was putting on.  She seemed surprised (& maybe a wee bit guilty) when I told her what all he had going.

I say the biggest thing with your Mom is fear.  She wants to believe the he is only putting it on and is actually fine because she is too afraid to accept the alternative.

Besides the fear, she may also be a bit jealous of all the attention he is getting!

Definitely both of you are correct, but it's been obvious to my entire family about the jealous part.  Mom doesn't accept change either, and Dad not being the solid rock he's always been is a lot of change to accept.

My grandmother was the exact same way. My grandfather was the rock of the family. He kept us all in line and was there when anyone needed help. Him sick was hard for all of us to hear but my grandmother just couldn't accept it

She was also jealous of everyone coming to see him and taking care of him. But at that time my grandmother was as healthy as a woman half her age.

Touch of pneumonia, but not bad luckily.  He got 2 shots, 1 antibiotic, one steroid, and more of each in pill form, along with an inhaler for bronchitis.  We went to a local eatery for lunch, and he cleaned his plate of 2 large fish, cole slaw, and a bowl of fried apples.  His appetite is good, I can vouch for that.  Glad it was something taken care of without a hospital stay.  Doc did say if he isn't feeling better by tomorrow afternoon to get back to his office promptly.

I'm surprised that the Dr. doesn't have him doing a breathing exercise. Did the Dr. tell him to us an ( INCENTIVE SPIROMETER )  you know the plastic thing with the ball in it that you suck air though to raise the ball.  He got one at the hospital when he had his surgery. Incentive Spirometers are very important to keep his lungs open and clear his lungs of fluids. Google it if you think you should.  If he is immobile and not up and walking very much he will get fluid in his lungs, hence pneumonia.   Glen

Teresa just got back from taking today's meds out to Dad.  She said he was "full of beans" today...in other words, in a great mood, chatting up a storm, laughing & cutting up.   :dancingbanana:   SO good to hear!  I'll see him later today when we drop off their shopping list of groceries.  Heading to town in a little bit.
