Evening update.....

I just left hospital and I am happy to report that he is sleeping. He is still a little fidgety but at least he sleeping more today then previously. Mom is staying with him tonight, so just pray that he has a good night's sleep. His legs and feet are pretty swollen, even though he is on lasix. (the medicine that takes fluid from the body) We discussed today about what the next steps should be, but we never came to a definitive answer. We will most likely have through the weekend to decide. Pray that God gives us peace in our decision. At the same time, we keep wanting that medical miracle and are praying that this pneumonia will be gone.

I also wanted to let you know that we have the most amazing nurses. We have come to know so many of them in this last month and they truly do care about our Dad. It actually brings tears to my eyes to know how much they care. We truly are blessed! Many of them stop in and say hi to Dad even when he is not one of their patients. It really does make the hospital stay more manageable!

Finally, some have asked how to leave comments or prayers for my Dad. It's pretty easy, just click on the comments link underneath the post and use the "Name/URL" one. All you have to do is type in your name and you do not have to have a URL. You will not need a special account for this one. Also if you want the updates to come to you by email, then sign up on the side bar. (I hope it works) If you don't mind making an account, then the google connect friends is a good way to get the updates too. Thank you so much for all your support, love and prayers!!

Prayer Requests
-Pneumonia to be gone
-Swelling in his legs to go down
-Continue to sleep and for it to be restful
-For mom to get a good night's sleep as well
