Hospital Release & Love
My dad got released from the hospital last night. They are staying with my Aunt Kathy and Uncle Dick who have graciously opened there home to my parents. My parents are very grateful for a warm comfortable home to stay in as my dad recovers. He is still very weak and trying to get his strength back. Some of the pain meds knock him out, so he dozes in and out of sleep through out the day and night. Luckily the nausea is under control and he is able to keep small amounts of food down. The Dr. said yesterday that so far there is no infection which is a good sign and the incisions are healing properly. They have an appointment on Friday and are hoping we get the "OK" to head home. We are grateful for the continued prayers, support and love! Speaking of support and love.. Today gift boxes from Jim & Rosalie Stevens & Kristen and Sean Koshkinen families arrived to lift my dad's spirits. Our family truly feels so blessed and loved by those around us!
