    My Dad is involved in the Plastics business for the last 50 years. He has been involved with over 600 Blow Molding Machines that were all made in the US. Between the making of the machines and use of the machines he has helped thousands of people with jobs. His machines help create Gas Cans, Coolers, Bottles, and many many other items we have all used.

    Here is an older article about my Dad

    http://www.plasticsnews.com/article/20021028/NEWS/310289996/spe-recognizes-slawskas-successes


    My Dad is real sick from medications that he took. He is having hallucinations that are way out there. He also has a bad problem with what I believe is the sciatic nerve. He has been off the medicine for a full day and drinking lots of water. My Dad is a former Marine and I have never seen him in this shape. We are hoping that the water will flush the medication out of his system. He has a doctors appointment for Monday and I am really worried for him. I think if he does not show any signs of getting better by the morning maybe he should go to the hospital.

    Please say a prayer.

    Thanks,
    Bob

    Sorry about your dad. May I ask what meds he was on and for how long? Some meds just can't be CT'd like that without sever withdrawal symptoms.

    I am not sure the exact meds. They were for an enlarged prostate. Than he was off that med and put on meds for a prostate infection.


    Thanks for all the prayers

    Just got off the phone with him and he sounds much better.

    His back is better and he can lean back now. I know it is still sore but a big improvement.

    He only got up once last night. He goes to the doctor tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone for your prayers :pray:. I think they might have help.

    No my Dad was in just after the Korean war. I think the enlarged prostate was a false alarm by the doctor. It may have been some type of infection. We will know more soon.

    Thanks everyone for your prayers and thoughts.

    Prayers sent for Dad (and you too). I agree with the earlier post - sometimes going cold turkey can cause other problems, definitely check with the doctor on that one. Wishing you both the best.

    Thanks Lee, I stopped over his house for lunch today and I see a bunch of progress. He lost almost 10 pounds with is not good, but he is staring to eat much better. His is going to a Endocrinologist soon to get checked out better.

    I am just glad he is not like he was on Saturday. That was not a good scene.
