Update: Father's Illness

This teddy-bear looking fella is my Diddy. 
This was taken the night before he went into the hospital.  We had no idea he was so sick.
The stinker!

Diddy's home.  He was in the hospital for 9 days.  They found that he has MRSA (staph) but haven't been able to isolate the origin of it.  He's gone home on IV antibiotics (which my mother is going to administer) for two weeks.  It could be longer if he continues to run positive cultures.
His blood pressure has leveled off (up from the 60s/30s he was running in the ER).  He's been without a fever for several days now.

I am so grateful to all the medical staff at St. Francis Hospital in Columbus, Georgia for taking such good care of him.

MRSA is such a difficult infection to treat. I will continue to pray for him. Poor guy. You're correct...he looks like a sweet ol' teddy bear!
