Jeff Baker

My name is Autumn and I am the oldest daughter of Jeff Baker. We live in Rome, NY and Jeff is now at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse, NY on the ICU floor. He has had multiple blood tests, ct scans, IV's for fluids, insulin, antibiotics, a biopsy and an x-ray. Since coming to Upstate they have found that he is severely dehydrated, hives from medication, 3 IV's blown, stone in his gallbladder, kidney infection, blood in his urine, mass on his liver and diabetic ketoacidosis. Friday afternoon he had a biopsy on the mass located on his liver. On the way back to his room he started to crash and went septic from the biopsy. They were able to get him stabilized and comfortable. Saturday they found out he has E-coli and placed a pic-line in him. They have done another ct scan to look at the mass on his liver to monitor the size while waiting for the results. Today they did an x-ray on his lungs and found fluid in his left lung which explains why he is having a hard time breathing. This is causing mucus and his asthma to act up. It's a lot of waiting to see what they are dealing with. Jeff is the sole provider for himself, Phyllis and his 3 grandchildren since the tragic loss of Brittany in March of 2017. He has been out of work for over a week now and no money coming in. Many of you may know Jeff from hockey which is his second family. Jeff is always willing to go play with anyone, for anyone and anywhere. Whether it's in Rome, Whitestown, Clinton, Morrisville or in the Barn Jeff is there ready to play. We aren't sure when he will be having surgery or to even leave the hospital. I know he is eager to get back to his normal life where he is working, providing and playing the sport he loves. I am trying to do this for him so that he can focus on getting better. I appreciate all the love and warn wishes for my dad and I know he does so keep them coming.
