It's been quite a week!
First I have to thank all of you who've been praying for my Dad. I told you about the issues he was having with his heart. They did the ablation on Monday which ended up taking about 3 hours because they had to do a few areas. His heart rate and rhythm immediately improved and they were planning to send him home on Wednesday. However, on Tuesday night the fibrillation came back and meds weren't helping.
They planned to do another procedure on Thursday, but while they were prepping him, his heart converted to a regular rhythm. After watching him for the day, he was sent home.
He's on several new meds which are supposed to help. He's very weak from spending a week in bed and is somewhat anxious about having the problem come back so I would really appreciate your continued prayers.
In other news, it's been crazy at work too. We have several cases of confirmed type A influenza there. This is the type of flu that is supposed to be prevented by the flu shot. The residents that got the flu have all had the shot. We now have the health department involved and apparently the state will now be reviewing each of our positive results along with the lot number of the flu shot we used.
As you can imagine, flu in a nursing home isn't a good situation. Our little, old people get quite sick. We are under quarantine and are trying to keep our residents in their rooms so it doesn't spread any further. We're wearing masks and going through lots of hand sanitizer and other cleaning supplies.
So far the staff has remained healthy, hopefully we stay that way!
