Prayer request and Update.........

Mon, 11-28-2011 - 11:47pm

It feels like it's been a long time since I've been able to sit here for hours gabbing away with you gals!! It will be awhile yet as we'll be continuing to spend our days at the hospital.

Two updates...........

We will see a neurologist tomorrow to see if John's symptoms are a side effect from a new drug he's been taking for a few months. Then Wednesday we'll see his family doctor. I put in a call to the ear, nose, throat doc, but haven't heard back and will call them again tomorrow. We'd also like to see a vacular doc to check his carotids, will get that set up when we see his family doc. He's not feeling great today, but no more bad spells so far.

About our granddaughter...It's a better day today. They put in a cranial shunt and the cranial fluid has been reduced to a good level. Some other problems have been resolved now too. If all stays level for 24 hours, they may do the surgery that will fuse her head to her neck. Hopefully that will happen tomorrow. Still very very scary!!

Continued prayers are very much appreciated..thank you so much!!

Donna, you can count on my continued thoughts and prayers for Sierra....

I worry about you and John spending all day at the hospital. It has to be so exhausting for you both. Of course, I do understand why you need to be there.
