As of this afternoon, the doctors have identified that Dad has MRSA (a staph infection). It is serious but treatable. He is in isolation, which means nurses, doctors and family members must wear scrub gowns, masks and gloves when they enter his room. They changed his antibiotic to a very strong medicine called vicomycin. I wanted him to stay in the ICU for the better care, but not under these circumstances. We are praying that the antibiotics work quickly and that the infection clears.
I'll post more as often as I'm informed.
