    Kim, Dad was admitted to the hospital yesterday. I don't have a lot of answers right now to be honest. He was diagnosed with "terminal aggitation" which they are having difficulty managing with meds so admitted him. I will keep you posted.

    My sister and I are both living with dad right now. My sister is from Texas and I (Wendy) have moved permanently to SC. My sister has no immediate plans to go back to Texas - so he's got us both!! I will definitely let him know you are thinking of him and ask often. I do wish he would drop...

    Well, I guess I'm not sure where I was going with that anyway. Desperation I guess. I saw some parallels between your late husband's situation and my father's so I wanted to ask some questions about that. I am so sorry you lost your husband recently. It's an incredibly painful disease for...

    CJ - We have never spoken before but I am "Beach Bum's" daughter. I would like to send you a private message if I could, but I am not sure how to do that. I am assuming we have to be "friends"

    Hi Kimberly, Dad is doing... ok. I was wondering if anyone from the forum has heard from him. I know he spends time on his computer but he does not seem to be up to doing too much lately. Know that when you send him messages he gets them, and I know they mean a lot to him even if he is not...

    Can anyone comment on their experiences with these CADD pumps? My father has been given one for pain management and although his pain seems well managed, I am not sure I am very happy with the side effects. He has episodes of extreme confusion and we have to frequently explain to him where he...

    Beach Bum Update

    Well, apparently your prayers are being heard. Dad had 2 days of antibiotic treatment for this pneumonia and perhaps that was enough. His lungs are not getting worse at this point. I think he has started to "feel" a little better, today was interested in eating. Still hates the trach but...
