Thank you all for the kind wishes and thoughts.
I'll spare you folks the gory details. Dad will be in the hospital for 24-48 hours recieving IV fluids and medications. He has an excellent doctor and a 24 hour kennel staff taking care of him that know him and my standards of care very well.
Those that know Dad will probably agree that when it's time for him to come home I may have to fight the staff for him
Again, thank you for the understanding and to derek for having NES to communicate with some of my friends/customers.
