Hiya,

Really sorry to hear this, wishing your father a quick return to health.
Hopefully you can talk to him soon as that will provide at least some peace of mind I'm sure.

Hugs.

        ojo.        Hello everyone!

Update. My father still in the hospital, some breathing problems but not need to entube him yet. I hope he beat COVID as Iíve been fighting hiv, fingers and toes crossed...thanks for the support, itís a little bit difficult to get information from my father when he is to far away and not knowing or dealing with his present family (my mother divorced him 36 years ago). Tho, I talked to his actual ď and she is going to keep me posted because my father canít longer do it himself due to his breathing problems...I will keep you posted...thx again.                                                 ojo
