Dad landed in the hospital after days of being sick (shortness breath and bronchitis) and refusing care. He was at the cabin with my mom and she finally got him to a hospital up there. Quickly it became something more and noticed on how very sick he was and was flown down via helicopter. He is now at Abbot Northwestern Hospital in Mpls. What he has is currently unknown, but his symptoms include nodules in lungs, thick yellow stuff in lungs, weak heart, low oxygen output, blood clots (old), cold hands and feet but warm core, temperature,and high to low blood pressure. He is currently being treated for fungal pneumonia and a weak heart. Fungal pneumonia is a guess at this point until more tests come in.
