when i touched my father's skin , it is quite hot or warm. it is what we usually do. check his temperature, his oxygen level by means of oximeter which is inserted onto the fingers. and it will have a digital result of the level of oxygen. anything from 94 and above is normal. below that, we should go to the doctor immediately. anyway, we have a tank of oxygen here. in case his oxygel leve drop below normal. as it is not good to body organ to have low oxygen level. anyway, usually before my father gets high temperature and we would end up in hospital for a week. it has become like that monthly. thankfully now it has been 3 months or more than 3 months we have not been confined again to the hospital. the hospital bill is just too high.

Make sure his temp doesn't go up either. I thought it was the higher it was, the worse it was? 94 is definitely normal, but anything 100 and over, I'd keep a close eye on. Make sure he doesn't get the chills or anything. I wish you and your father the best! Hope he feels better!

I can't imagine having to pay a hospital bill for myself. I have insurance and I only pay a few dollars for medication. I am so blessed. I hope your dad will continue to do well with his health.
