Carol's dad back in the hospital

Carol's dad was taken from the Assisted Living apartment to the hospital on Friday when his blood work came back looking very bad. His white blood cells were rising rapidly and he was to get another transfusion. They also discoverd that the reason for swelling in his leg was that he had a blood clot. Today, his white cell count was higher still. We were advised today that the next couple of days were to be very critical. He continues to be frustrated because of his sudden hearing loss he suffered a few weeks ago. We use a chalk board to try to keep him informed about conversations being carried on around him. This seems to calm him somewhat. All we can do now is continue to love him and pray for him.
