Sigh

My father-in-law is back in the hospital. This makes trip #4 in the last year or so. They just can't get a handle on this fungal infection (gross, i know) in his sinuses for some reason. I hate how it affects Jony, although I can understand. He's beginning to lose his patience with his dad, though. While this infection is not entirely his fault (it sort of is, though), he's certainly not helping himself at all. The infection was most likely caused by the mold that was growing in their bathroom. He had too much pride to just have someone come and redo their bathroom because he wanted to do it. A few years later and they are just now starting. The doctors also think that the mold got onto his CPAP machine, which he has to use nightly due to his weight-induced sleep apnea. Yet, his parents still eat fast food every day (at least once) and enjoy their nightly ice cream. His father is EXTREMELY overweight. So, it's a pretty frustrating experience since it could have all been avoided. If he doesn't change his lifestyle, I'm not sure what will happen. A healthier lifestyle would at least boost his immune system.

We're not sure if that means their 30th anniversary party is cancelled or not. We'll see what the doctors tell him today...
