Default If you can spare a prayer

My dad has his knee replaced last week and has been home recovering pretty well. Besides having a bum leg, he has no health issues and is never sick. Hes a tough 70 years old. I got a call at 3am that mom was loading him up and taking him to ER. He had 103.4 fever, shallow breathing and was talking out of his head. Doctors feared a clot, but all test have come back good. His oxygen percentage was 81%. Doppler of leg, scan of lungs, good. His bloodwork showed no infection, etc. They think they narrowed it down to Altelectasis. An ailment caused by shallow breathing (shallow breathing caused by pain) in which the lower part of the lung deflates and can cause both fever and labored breathing. (Thats how it was explained to me by his orthopedic surgeon). They gave him some oxygen and hes feeling better, but say a prayer for my dad if you have the chance.

Hes concerned about his Wyoming hunt in November. Im concerned about my Dad. Thank yall.

Curt, my dad went through the EXACT same thing when he had his knee replaced at 71 years old. We got him a prescription for home oxygen for when he was sleeping. He used that for about 2 weeks, then stopped. He had no further problems. Sure am praying the same for your dad!


Lord hear the petitions of our brother Curt for his earthly father. We ask you Lord heal him and give him the stamina to have strong lungs that he may breathe well. Give his care-givers the wisdom and knowledge to care for him while You heal him Lord. Increase his strength and restore him to his family. This man is the patriarch of the family and still has so much to offer and to demonstrate his witness for You Lord. give him healthy years as it is in Your will. Help the rest of the family to care for him and Love on him to encourage him. Give his wife peace knowing he is in good hands and covered by You. We ask these things through the healing blood of Your Son Jesus Christ our Savior and Advocate with You Father, Amen.


Curt, I'd be honored to help you in any way I can. Call me if you think of anything!

My father in law got a new hip about a month ago, and went through that exact scenario. A little oxygen and moving around some got him back squared away. I was up at his place last weekend and he's really got the hang of pointing and giving orders with his new cane.
