My dad had to be taken to the emergency room today because he had been running a fever of over 100. When he got there, they found he had pneumonia. He's now been admitted to the hospital, and it's unclear how long he will have to stay there. Things are made even more worrisome by the fact that my dad's immunity system is on the weak side because of fairly recent chemotherapy treatment.
If you would, please pray for my dad, and also ask for the intercessory prayer of St. Bernadine of Siena, who is the patron saint of lung illnesses. Thank you, and God bless.
Update (1/4/13): Good news. Turns out my dad doesn't have pneumonia and is starting to feel a little better. Hopefully, he'll be able to go home soon.
