Continuous blood in urine followed by black chunks, weakness with excessive sleep. Does this need immediate attention?

My Dad has been peeing blood off and on for over a year now. In the last few days it has become almost totally blood. He is pale, and getting sleepier daily, slept 13 hours last night! Just now he came out of the bathroom and said he just peed out black chunks!?!? He is scheduled for a CT scan next Thursday, as we believe it is probably Bladder Cancer . I am concerned that, now, this is something needing immediate attention. He is a VET and the local VA is closed til Monday. Should he go to the ER?

Good Day!

I believe your dad needs to seek medical consult ASAP. He may not be able to urinate because blood clots may block his urinary passage. Also prolonged sleep and decreasing consciousness is also a red flag. He may have metabolic derangements that may be life threatening.
