My father is in the hospital

When you spend all day in a wheelchair, you are susceptible to bedsores. When you are a paraplegic, you have no way of feeling these sores and often times if you do not see them, they can turn into open, infected wounds.

It’s happened a couple of time to my father over the past ten years and it is happening again.

He drove himself to the ER this morning with a very high temperature. He is now being treated with antibiotics in the hopes that his temp will return to normal.

They had hoped that he’d be on his way home by now but he has just been admitted because his status hasn’t changed since he arrived.

Hopefully he’ll be doing much better by morning.
