    He went in early Monday morning on doctor's advice because he couldn't go to the toilet. The doctors there said it was just an infection and gave him some anti biotics and stuck a tube in him to relieve the pressure. Today they removed the tube and things aren't working as they should and it's apparently more serious than just an infection although no one has told us exactly what's happening. We know they need to open him up at some point and that's about it.
    For those of you that believe my Dad could really use some prayer, it's not life threatening from what we've been told but my Dad is a proud and indepenent man so this has been a real dignity stripper and he's really, really down. I can't stand seeing him like that, I can take anything the world wants to through at me but I can't stand seeing my family suffer, so it'd be appreciated.

    Try to be there with him, if you can. Life-threatening or not, just being there to hang out with your Dad while he's in the hospital will truly help him feel comfortable and may aid in the recovery.

    I wish him the best and I hope he doesn't suffer anything horrible as a result of this.

    You both have my prayers for whatever they're worth. I've been there before with my Dad, and will likely be there again, sooner than I would like. Just went fishing with him on Saturday. I'm appreciating these things more and more. I hope you get lots more days with yours.

    I can say from being where your Dad is right now that having family around makes it all the better. It sounds like an intestinal blockage, which is very serious. Your Dad will be in our prayers and I wish you an your family the best of luck.

    It sounds like everyone has given you some good, sound advice: spend time hanging out with him as much as you can and shower him with prayer. I think between all of us who posted, we can at least help you out in the prayer dept. ;)

    Thanks guys, I think it actually worked which is bloody incredible. His condition, both mental and physical has improved incredibly, he still needs an operation of some description (I'm a little unclear on the details) but he's making swift progress. Seriously guys, thanks for everything.
