Purge in Blood.

When I reached Malaysian soil yesterday, I receive a shocking SMS from my wife. My father in law has just been hospitalized. Last Saturday he was having some stomach problem. In actual fact he was having diarrhoea for the later part of the day. However everything seems to be back to normal on Sunday hence the shock when I receive the SMS.

The SMS said “Father admitted to hospital, purge or waste got blood”. I was quite worry as he has the same symptoms as my father. My father in laws is also taking mini aspirin for his heart condition. He has also been behaving a bit strange, a bit “blur”, loss of appetite and slept frequently. So for those who have parents that are being treated for heart conditions do be more cautious and alert on their behaviour. So far the similarity is sleep frequently, loss of appetitie and a bit “blur”.

A endoscopy and colonoscopy was done on him. That is after he was given laxative to clear his bowels to enable a clearer image in the colon. He spends almost 5 to 6 hours with frequent purging activities. The result shows that there are multiple ulcers at the stomach and colon. The ulcer in the colon is the one causing the bleeding. There are also 2 tumours found which the doctor has taken some sample for biopsy. The good news is the doctor say based on the physical outlook it looks benign.

I guess after 2 weeks if I am still facing stomach problem I will go for my endoscopy. I hope my father in law will be fine. He is currently is still in the hospital, again be sensitive and alert on your loved one who is eating daily pills for heart problem. If they are a bit blur, loss of appetite tired and sleep frequently, question them, ask them about their daily toilet activities and “output”. My father in law has finally admitted that he has been purging in blood for quite some time in which he has denied after I request my wife to ask him. Ask and pester them until you felt the answer is sincere…….
