my father is on the hospital once again. since yesterday. that was why i was not able to post a lot in here. he got double pneumonia this time. meaning both of his lungs are affected. but it is not the first time my father was admitted for the same reason. he is always on medication for pneumonia each month although not always on the hospital. most of the time he is just being treated at home with anti biotics. only when the pneumonia is quite hard to treat at home that they would require us to treat at home. anyways, if my father is strong enough on the 4th day, that they may let us continue the treatment at home but still on IV treatment and not just on tablets. we look like a nurses to my father actually as we need to learn what nurses do so that we can continue treating him at home.

treatment at home is good so long as it is not risking him in any way, I know he probably wants to be at home ant I know you would want him to be home but only if there is no risk, I hope it works out for you.

I did notice you were gone from here. I do hope your father will be ok as well. I hope you get to do something you have been wanting to do. I know you love your dad very much. Take time for healing yourself while you can.

I wouldn't rush taking him home too soon, make sure all his symptoms are good cause if you take him too soon he could turn for the worst again and then you have to take him back to the hospital again
