Kelly's Dad's Final Expenses

Hello, my dear friends. Our lovely Kelly has returned stateside, as of late last night. While she is SO VERY happy to be back to her minis and her husband, she is terribly heartbroken to have left her dad.

Today, upon calling the nursing home for an update, she got terrible news. Dad contracted an infection when his catheter was replaced. He was very lethargic again yesterday so I ordered an ambulance to take him back to hospital. They are treating the infection with an antibiotic.

But the main problem now is his BP. It is very low. They've monitored him through the night with fluid to try to get it back up but unsuccessful. The only option is to transfer him to ICU to keep monitoring his BP but that procedure is very invasive and painful. I opted out. I don't want him to go through that.

He will be moved back to palliative care ward again. But doubtful he can come out of this time.

At this time, Kelly needs out help with her dad's funeral, please. As we know Kelly has spent the last 6 weeks in Australia caring for her dad, so she hasn't been here able to work. Your contributions to his care and final expenses are all greatly appreciated.

Kelly counts each one of you as FAMILY and would like to thank each and every one of you for you countless messages, prayers, posts, cards and EVERYTHING else you have done for her and her family, from the bottom of her heart.

Love, Kelly
if you have questions, please direct them to Julie at this time, Kelly needs space and time with her husband and children. Thank you.
