Update on Daddy

I didn't update last night because there was not much to update on. Yesterday morning, Bertie called to say that Daddy had a rough night and had to be restrained tightly on the bed. He was not aware of what was going on and not lucid in the least. Yesterday afternoon, he was less agitated and they were able to at least loosen the restraints and move him from ICU to a step down unit with video surveillance.

Because he was no longer in ICU, Jenna was able to visit with us last night. I was able to get a few bites of dinner in him but while he seemed to recognize us, he was not really aware of us being there and was not able to converse with us at all.

I just got a call this morning that he had another bad night and they have retightened his restraints. He still remains unaware most of the time and now is in apparent pain when he tries to urinate. They attempted catheterization unsuccessfully and have called in a neurologist to assess the situation. There is clearly more going on now and we are unsure how this all will play out. Right now, things do not look well at all.

Please continue to pray for me and my family.

We are continuing to pray for you all. Sorry I haven't commented yet, we have been having some medical issues here, too. I still remember your dad driving us home in the patrol car and telling us it had better be the only way he heard about us riding in a patrol car! Love to all of you!
