While H and I ran away for the weekend, his mom left a message with easy child that she and father in law were cancelling their trip in July. They were driving up from FL, stopping along the way to visit friends and father in law was supposed to play in a golf tourney then head up here to CT. Apparently, my father in law has turned yellow, has lost 30lbs and lies around the house with no energy. He went to one year followup appointment with his dermatologist on Fridy and she was alarmed primarily with the weight loss. Obviously, he has jaundice and his liver is having problems. My father in law is, has always been, an extremely heavy gin drinker. It would not be surprising if he had cirrhosis of the liver, but the weight loss-that's the most worrisome part. Anyway, he refused to go to the ER and his regular dr is on vaca till tomorrow. We are hoping he gets in tomorrow. What is it with old people and ER's? So positive vibes, thoughts, prayers are welcome. Thank you.
