Jeff took his dad to the hospital again tonight. Earlier this week he started having more pain, from the cancer in his hip to his knee. Jeff called the doctor to get a pain prescription because Bob didn't want anyone to tell the doctor that he was hurting more. Jeff's mom, Marge ended up talking to Bob's family doctor (Jeff's cousin) and got a prescription for pain medicine. He took it one night, and slept well. Then he suddenly got sick, nauseated, didn't want to get out of bed. Not eating or drinking anything. Today when Jeff checked on him he still wasn't drinking or eating, so Marge called the doctor. He was out all day, sick himself, and his clinic didn't let him know that Marge was calling to find out what to do for Bob.
Turns out that Mark, the doctor, felt like Bob needed to be admitted to the hospital tonight, that waiting until tomorrow would be very bad. Jeff took him out there and got him admitted. Bob's PSA count was very high and Mark gave Jeff the impression that he might not be going home this time. He didn't say it though, so maybe it was just Jeff's feeling.
Marge isn't doing too well herself. Jeff had to make sure she was eating, and she was really out of breath trying to talk to him on the phone last night.
Please keep them both in your prayers.
