Help-doctors can figure out what is wrong

My father was recently admitted into the hospital after suffering from a seizure while he was sleeping.  He is a diabetic taking insulin shots and currently on dialysis for his kidney.  
Symptoms:  
numbness, razor like pain, uncontrolled twitching and unable to move left arm and left leg
Unable to breathe (was just put on a respirator)
pain in his lower back
some memory issues
seizure
rash/herpe like sores on his calf, bottom of foot
fever coming and going sporadically
gallstones (don't know if this means anything or not) no enlarged gallbladder
hiccups for about 3 weeks straight
MRI on spine and brain--clear (some arthritis in back)
CT scan--clear
ultrasound of leg-clear
xray of leg-clear
Has anyone else had these issues or know somethings it might be.  They are calling in an infectious disease doctor now and decided to do another MRI on his head and currently doing an EEG.
They took blood when he was admitted 2 days ago, but I don't know if they tested it for anything.  
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you!!
