When he went in yesterday, he was covered in bruises and his blood was 5 times too thin. They were afraid he might have internal bleeding and told him to go straight to the ER. Well, they called the hospital today to check on him and they had no record of him being there. The dr. called my dad and kept getting his voice mail. I called him and he answered. What a relief!! He said he did go to the ER and was there for 3 1/2 hours and was released. They took him off of his blood thinning meds for now.
I'm emotionally exhausted!
Oh Jennifer how scary - praying all will get better in the days ahead.
