This is scary for me. I'm used to my dad being the strong, healthy one. I'm used to him taking care of me -- driving me to appointments, giving me additional support & wisdom, coming into my "bedroom" many times a day asking me how I'm doing, making me coffee. I haven't seen him for over a week (because he's in the hospital and of germs) and I miss him a lot.
We still don't have a diagnosis and that is difficult as well too. So until work) then he will remain in hospital and I at home and will continue to pray.
No one like to see their dad weak.
23 pokes (IV or blood)
4-5 cameras up nose
1 under anaesthetic - examined epiglottis, vocal cords, etc; took two laser biopsies
8 approx. specialists seen (approx. 4 ENTs, 1 speech therapist, 2 infectious specialists)
All biopsies, bloodwork, etc. are within normal except for a bacterial infection in my throat which has caused me to stop swallowing including my own saliva. If things do not improve this weekend, they will insert a food tube directly into my stomach.
Pray for healing so that I don't need this procedure.
