Tony has been in the hospital this week. George took him in to the doctor on Monday because he wasn't doing well. They admitted him to run some tests. It was pneumonia. After a few days on antibiotics, he seemed better and we thought he was going to be released. Then, yesterday they tried to wean him off the oxygen and he stopped breathing. So, they kept him. Today, they ran some more tests and have found that one or both of his lungs have collapsed. The doctor is going to go in and try and let out the air around the lung.
We think at this point when Tony gets out, he will need at least part-time care. The social worker at the hospital has been talking to George about our options. He might live a week or he might live three months. We don't know. I just now that he is scared and doesn't want to be alone. If the time is short, hospice will be our option. We just don't know.
Please pray for us during this difficult time. George is stressed. Samuel is feeling it and acting out at school. The house is a mess. I have had so many people offer to help. But, really what can they do? We are living day to day.
