Dad's sick
    #4691600 - 09/21/05 08:30 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

My 60 year old dad is sick. He hasn't eaten since Sunday night.
He has horrible balance, his hearing has decreased significantly, he said his vision is somewhat blurry, his reaction time is down, he has hot flashes and he chills constantly, his skin looks a little off color, he said his taste buds are messed up, he's very lethargic. I'm really worried. He doesn't have insurance, so he refuses to go to the doctor.
He also rarely gets sick and when he does, it's very minor.
Peace

That doesn't sound too good, man.  I'd get him to the doctor whether

he wants to go or not.

Good luck.

At the very least take him to a clinic or something. The man who helped conceive you deserves to be taken care of at least a little bit, yeah?

Whatever you do, it sounds like he needs some sort of medical attention.

Hope he gets better, sickness is never fun :frown:

:sun: :heart:

Yeah that's what I was thinking. My sister is a nurse and my buddies mom is a nurse also. Maybe they could help. But, best thing to do would be a doctor. He said he doesn't sleep much.
Maybe I can give him some weed. That'd make him eat and sleep :wink:

Yeah. He just woke up and shit everywhere.
Which...would usually be funny. Be, not at all here. It's so scary.
I told him he needs to go to the fucking doctor tomorrow and he just said that he doesn't have insurance. What a dick.
I'm dragging his ass there tomorrow if it means I have to throw him in the trunk of my car.

yeah my dad was sick for a while, different symptoms tho... but he refused to go to the doctor. Finaly a friend of his dragged him down, turns out he had cancer... lucky son of a bitch, the doctor said one more month and it would of been terminal....

my dad had different symptoms, but never the less you need to get him checked out so they can take care of what ever it is.

I wouldn't wait untill tomorrow personally, tie his ass up if need be and take him to the doctors. Could be nothing and he'll be real pissed for a month, or it could save his life.

He doesn't take any pills or medicine of any sort, his skin doesn't look yellow...just blotchy kind of. My mom said it's probably influenza (the flu). I don't think his fluid intake is that great right now. But to give you an idea of what he USUALLY drinks, 2 Double Gulps from 7-11 filled with Diet Coke. Very unhealth. So, he drank about a gallon of Diet Coke a day. But now, he said he barely drinks anything.

Would be good if you could convince him to drink 64oz of just plain water each day ... Hope his condition improves -Tranceharper

nows the time to tell him everything you want to tell him, ask him everything you want to ask him. Get to know him, clear the air. Forget all the insecurities that kept you from doing it before, you know?

not saying hes gonna die, by any means. sicknesses pass, healing occurs. But , you know what im saying.

It could be a stroke. I would get him to the doctor.

Does he have a fever?
