my father is at the hospital with suspected lung embolism. he collapsed at breakfast on saturday. some ass here at the hospital didn't tell the staff that he had some sort of 'super-bug' and now i have 39,3 fever, there is something terribly wrong with my ecg (the doctors aren't sure themselves).

i'm so pissed of by that ****....

hey dont postpone yet .hang in there for a week ,may be things get better .

more acute the condition more quickly it can get better ,thats how it goes .

my father too had Multiple organ failure as a reaction to a dye used in his angiography after bypass surgery ,he became serious but in few days (4-5 days) he was out of danger and that felt so so good .

so may be after a week ,things will out to be so good,we will all pray for you.

u need to sit your ass down and pray pray pray !

its hard time i know ,be positive and pray

good luck
