Thanks alot people for the concern, means alot to me. I'm so happy that i can bring much better news.
Yesterday we heard that they found the right meds to treat against the pneumonia, but today was the best news so far. His wife went to visit him today and as soon as she entered the room he looked up, into her eyes, his blood pressure went up (no doubt because of all the emotions) but soon went down again. He squeezed in her hands several times, tried to talk but this didn't go well yet because of some sort of slime in his mouth.
When she left, he waved at her, so yeah...this is awesome news. This means he recognized her and that in terms of mentally...it seems very well. Of course when he's fully recovered some other things might appear that have been damaged, but it's at least not this. He might have troubles speaking, things like that are possible..it would be horrible but hell...the good man lives, he recognizes his loved ones!!! I really have the feeling that some true miracles happened....he survived a blood pressure of 300+, he survived a very risky surgery and it looks like so far that mentally it's well too.
I always find it very hard what to say in situations like these
It's going downhill again....and this time it's much more serious too.
As i said before, the surgery went very well, even though he suffered a small brain infarction during it, he didn't show any damage when he finally woke up. He really was recovering and remembering everything. However, he had been feeling extremely down...depressed the last few days. Everything was negative for him...not much of a will to fight, it was real bad. But apparently the anti-depressants he always got for awhile now, the doctors had lowered the dosage, and i blame his depressed feelings on that...i'm almost sure that must be the reason.
My dad suffered from another brain infarction this morning, which makes it a total of 3 basically. (first at home before the surgery, during the surgery and now this one, just....crazy...) right now..he speaks very unclear, you can understand a few words, but when he makes lines/sentences, you just don't really understand it. His mouth looks weird when he talks...he doesn't seem to feel one of his legs and arms, his heart rate is rushing like crazy, and his blood pressure is too low. The whole situation is very serious...the coming 42 hours are very important. During that time, some kind of recovery should start to show up...it's all very unclear now.
I know you shold always keep the faith and hope for the best...but it's just so hard to do that right now. I saw him and it's looking really bad.
I can understand that, but don't forget to tell him how much you love him... :heart: Just let your heart speak...I just always make sure before i go into the room he's in, i look confident and strong, so he doesn't notice my fear and sadness too much. Cause i'm sure he'll start to worry about that too, and we can't have that.
