Topic: Family Emergency

I was in a group chat last night when I said I had to go because my Dad was in hospital. Turns out he had a seizure Wednesday night. He had a CT scan yesterday and they found he has a 4cm lesion on his brain - I only found out yesterday afternoon because Mum didn't want me to get upset until they knew what was going on.

Today Dad goes in for an MIR and then he'll be going for brain surgery. So if I'm not around you'll know why. I'm keeping my fingers crosssed that it all goes well...

Oh no, how scary for you all (hugs)

I have got my fingers crossed that everything goes funkily for him and that he makes a speedy recovery.

Re: Family Emergency

That is awful. I wish your father a speedy recovery and hope all goes well.

Re: Family Emergency

Thanks everyone, it's really appreciated.

Well gotta love the health care system. Dad was supposed to go in for his MIR on Friday but he didn't get a bed in the John Hunter hospital until 2pm and they couldn't transport him there until 7.30pm as it had been a rainy day and the ambulances were busy with accidents. By the time he got to the John Hunter it was too late for an MIR and they don't do them of a weekend.

So on Saturday we had to go pick him up because the only operating theatre able to do the surgery is booked until Wednesday week. Thankfully Dad is stable and to be honest and I think he's happier to be home. I'll let you know more as it comes.

Once again, thank you to everyone for the well wishes and prayers.

Re: Family Emergency

I'm relieved that he seems to be doing better at home. I hope that everything remains placid, and that the surgery goes smoothly when it happens. I'll continue to pray for him.

Re: Family Emergency

Dad had the surgery this arvo, he's in recovery now. Apparently he's awake, knows who he is and where he lives so that's a good start. I'll see him tomorrow since it's rather late. As you can imagine he's got a bit of a headache tongue

He should get his full results from pathology within 5 days, he'll have some of them by tomorrow.

Thanks again for everyone's warm wishes.

Re: Family Emergency

Glad to hear he finally got the surgery, and very good sign that he seems alert and remembers everything! 

Fingers crossed that he's back 100% soon   smile

I'm really relieved to hear that the surgery went well, and that he's doing just fine. I'll pray that he recovers swiftly, and that there are no negative repercussions.
