My dad still could not eat this morning, and would not open his mouth. Saliva was dripping out of his mouth. I tried to take him to the hospital, but he was too weak to be able to walk or get into the car. I had to call the ambulance. My dad was still conscious, but could not stand up or walk on his own. He also looked unfocused and could not speak or respond verbally.

We are currently at Fountain Valley Hospital. We've been in the US since October 1993, and this was my dad's first time in the hospital as a patient. Right off the bat, the new nurses were having trouble withdrawing blood from my dad's arms and I was not happy about it.
