update...from the land of crashed computers..

Yes our computer crashed YET again....but thankfully we have a friend who is a computer tech/I.T./whatever you call it and he fixed it. Our computer is still slow but it works for now...until we can get a new computer.

I have two blog posts to copy and paste but wanted to do the update first.

My father in law fell a week ago. He did not go to the dr like we wanted until Sunday night. At that time the MRI and Cat scans showed a cerebral hemorage and the possibility of a stroke but the brain was swollen. Yesterday some time they let us know he has a benign brain tumor but were not sure where it was precisely located due to swelling in the brain from the hemmorage. His heart rate and blood pressure have been very low and he is slurring his speech. He has been in ICU. The latest info is that they are going to try moving him to a regular room to see if having visitors and what not will bring his heart rate up. Being so sedate in the ICU may be keeping it down because of inactivity and no conversation etc etc. I am not sure when that will take place. I also found out.....now my info is all 2nd and 3rd hand cause I cant go up with the kids and they are on spring break so I am at home with them. He will need brain surgery to remove the tumor....I do not know when this is or how long it will take or any other details. I do KNOW he needs PRAYER...lots of it. He is 66 years old and this type of thing is harder as you get older...not that he is old but you know what I mean.

God is able.......

I will post my 2 posts I wrote while crashed on another day......even if it isn't NOT ME MONDAY......LOL.

Oh my. You must be pretty upset. I hope maybe you can find someone to watch the kids so you can get there. It would probably do you both good. Just said a prayer.

thanks...they moved him to a regular room in hopes the activity from having visitors...will raise his heart rate...but they are also talking about putting in a pacemaker......anyway......I will update when I can...
