  • I'm so sorry! I'm assuming he's in the hospotal right? If so, he'll be treated with anti-coaugulants (blood thinners) and hopefully this will help. How old is your dad?

  • It can depend on any number of things. I would spend as much time with him as you can. He probably won't make it long.

  • I do know that they will do all that they can for him and try to keep him comfortable. He is young, maybe he will heal some do.
