            I would like to thank everyone for your kind thoughts, well he is in the hospital and he is doing ok they said his kidney function is down more then it was 2 weeks ago and his doctor says they are going to try to keep him off of dialysis, they also think his prostate is enlarged and that is the reason he can't urinate, they put a cath in and they took 2 urinals full out of him but they say he still has kidney damage from it how we don't know yet so that is it for now will let you know more tomorrow

              I am so sorry that your dad is not doing so good. Its a lot for you to deal with considering how much you have on your plate. I'm thinking of you and hoping things improve.
