That's it. This whole thing is encouraging me to follow a different light, and possibly to go vegetarian for the most part. I have no problems with eating meat, but it seems a culture that has encouraged the massive consumption of it is wrong. The first thing out the door in this house - we're all agreeing on this - is the diet. Of course, I know that my father's consumption of food is not the whole problem here.
edit: Okay, all is well. My dad is going to be fine. I have not heard a doctor's word on the matter, but nothing has been said of my dad and diabetes, so I guess that means he's fine. They ran some tests on him today, and they're building his blood back up with iron and other treatments. He's doing okay.
