answers for a 65 year old man

MY dad is 65 years old has lung cancer and a diabetes. The night before he felt faint and when we checked his blood sugar was 439, as you can see this is extremely high. MY dad has constant control over his sugar so see it this high is very surprising. But then he went to the bathroom and found blood in his stool. The next day there was an extreme increase in blood in stool. Also his Flatulence was extremely bad. What could be happening?

I'm not quite sure what is happening, but I do know that you need to get him to an ER ASAP it sounds like he is bleeding internally, and needs help......please keep us posted on what you find out and my prayers will be with your family at this time.

I pray that your father is better. He does need to be in the hospital so they can find out what is going on. Do please keep us posted. My prayers are with you and your family. I really do know what it feels like.
