"Daddy is back in the hospital. He has been deteriorating markedly over the last few weeks and finally agreed to see the family doctor today. He should see the cardiologist, but he really doesn't like the cardiologist, so he won't go there. His haemaglobin is 6.7, which is very low, so he's in for transfusions. We're not sure where he's losing the blood, but the smart money is on something gastrointestinal. He wanted a guarantee that he could get out tomorrow before he would agree to go in."
