Well, at about 10pm on April 6 he was taken to the hospital for hard breathing. He was having trouble breathing earlier in the week but we thought it was just him catching his breath from shoveling heavy snow. So last night he and my mom went to the hospital to get it checked out. The doctor said it was food poisoning. He is a roofer and often buys his lunches and snacks from a local Uni-Mart or 7-11. So something he ate from their store got him really sick.:(

So my mom got home last night at about 2:30 am, and told me what was happening. They kept him over night and had an IV hooked up to him because he got dehydrated and this morning they are running blood tests and the whole nine yards to make sure he is ok.

Im not normally a praying religious guy but i pray for my father's sake...

jebbers, I too was once hospitalised for food posioning ! When you get it *real bad* you cant drink or eat without throwin up. It sucks :( However, with some IV hydration and antibiotics, all you need is a bit of time to rest :)

hope everything turns out okay :)

I'll pray for your dad dude. Its not like you can control god or anything. Or use him like a tool, what is his will is its done no question, nothing anyone can do about it. I'm not saying gods going to say screw you all and let everyone die, its just whatever he wishes. Anyway I just hope he's is able to get back on his feet in a couple days and cmon home and take care of you ;).

Damn, when I saw the title I thought he'd be dead. Very relieved to see it's not that situation.

As long as he's in good hands things should be fine. :)

Food poisoning is like the only time I ever have wanted to die. Like right then and there. Worst. Pain. Ever. Wouldn't wish that stuff on anyone.

Hope he gets better :)

Damn 7-11. When he feels better tell him next time if the hot dogs green...don't eat it.

I'm sure he will be okay. I will pray for him. Be strong for your mom.

Oh man, that sucks. My mom got food poisoning about 9 or 10 years ago from the olive garden. Wasn't fun, she felt like she was dying.

Your dads in my prayers.

Well the news isnt getting better. The hospital is keeping him again because his EKG wasnt right and his heart palpatations are getting worse. So hes goin to another place this morning and getting more work done. And to add more pain to his list the antibiotics they had him on gave him a migraine, his limbs are numb from the testing, he began vomiting last night, and he just isnt feeling too well. So im hoping i get to see him tonight.

I'm only babtist Jebbers, and I said a prayer, my GF is from an older religion than mine, I asked her to pray for you as well.

No matter what happens Jebbers, you will ALWAYS have us, and we will ALWAYS be there for you. Remember that.

Dude, this sounds EXACTLY like what happened to my grandmother.

She showed signs of food poisoning, and felt dizzy, and fainted. We found out that the top and bottom half of her heart wasn't beating in sync. She stayed in the hospital for a few days, but today she's fine :D

Hope your dad get's better jebbers, I know how scarey it is : |

jebs, im sorry to hear what happenned :(

please note that food poisoning(caused by nasty bacteria) is not a direct cause of heart problems, be they angina or any blockages etc.

Heart problems, as you can imagine, usually develop over time. I have some mild heart probs myself, and if left unchecked could get more serious.

To make sure your dad stays with you all a long time, make sure he gets good medical advice from a cardiologist, and a specialised diet and exercise program. I run a program for patients with chronic congestive heart failure, and the importance of diet and exercise can not be understated...

wish you all well :)

Your father is recovering healthfully and your sister brought life into the world. Sounds like a good ending (or more like a second beginning) to me. ;)
