Hi CMartin,


I am so sorry to hear about your dad's situation. I encourage you to discuss his health with his physician to fully understand his condition and what to expect.

Hi, thanks for responding! So it get's deeper than that his wife is a ver jelous person and doesnt ever seem happy. she is always so rude and acts like she knows it all or she is all he needs she is a wicked witch! lol

       Anyhow, he was actually released yesterday and went back home, wanna know the saddest part of yesterday.... My sister and i went to tell him good bye (we were on our way home) and there is he sitting at his kitchen table ALONE, with a big fat FRIED eggroll, soy sauce and hot wings! Who do you think made it for him??? Yes his wife the one who doesnt think and watches him eat all of this bad stuff, yes i know he is a grwon man but it's hard for him to be served that adn not live in a healthy enviorment. Jus saying if he lived with me he woudl be eating the right way especially just  gettign out of the hospital.
