Chin Up

Hi everyone. My dad has ran into a couple set backs. The complications he has experienced from the removal of one of his tubes has made his recovery difficult. He was supposed to leave the hospital yesterday, and now it is uncertain when he will be discharged. His pain meds make him very nauseous and his energy levels are pretty low. He slept almost all day yesterday, and we're waiting to see how today goes.

He did get a wonderful surprise visit from Dr. P, who brought his two children in to meet my dad on Saturday. I think Dr. P has really grown an attachment to my dad and his winning attitude. Although things have grown a little more complicated, we're trying to keep our chins up.

  1. Oh no, I see that Dr. P is trying to steal my kids' place as surrogate grandchildren! (Of course I don't expect my kids to try to compete with his real grandchildren). But we did miss him and your mom at church on Sunday. My 5 kids crawling all over me while my husband chuckled from up on the stand. It makes it a lot easier when your dad is there to distract my 2-year-old with his iPhone, or when your mom is there with her bag of goodies to occupy the rest of the kids.

    You all continue to be in our thoughts and prayers.
