Your father is an elderly diabetic and does not bother to control his blood sugars.
The high temperature is due to UTI which is common in uncontrolled diabetes.
Diabetes will cause functional impairment of kidneys. Now it is superadded with infection(nephritis).
Rate of recurrence is high. In you fathers case the infection did not subside completely due to the presence of pus cell
