I'm not the best with words so hopefully I explain this to you so you can understand it. If you were to bleed right now(very heavy bleeding, not a scratch or normal cut), your HGB might only be down a point but tomorrow it may be down 3 points but you haven't bleed any more. It takes something like 24 or 48 hours (I forget how many hours) for the HGB level to show accurate, that's why they repeat them daily.
I reread that and I really wish I could explain this better to you but my brain is mush today. Hopefully it's good enough for you to understand.
They should be doing repeat Hgb levels on your dad and hopefully tomorrows will be better. Don't worry quite yet.
