It's been almost 2 weeks now and my dad is still in the hospital. So far he has had 2 surgeries to drain the fluid build-up on his brain. His right knee has a small fracture so he has to wear a brace on that leg. Last week he developed stomach pains so they had to run all these tests. We haven't heard any results yet but I do know they have him on a an "onlyl liquid" diet for now because anything solid that goes in his mouth causes him great discomfort. He hasn't eaten since Friday. We are very frustrated that we haven't heard any news from the dcotors yet. It's only been 4 days. How long does it take to get results? Today they had to move him back up to ICU because he developed a 103 fever, his heart rate picked up and he had trouble breathing. He is more stable now and is being watched closely. On a brighter note Lindsey and Nikki are doing fine and back in school. I was out sick all last week but am doing much better. Tomorrow morning I have my breast MRI so I am feeling quite anxious about that as well. My stress level is high but my faith in God is even higher. I pray that my dad's condition improves and is back home in no time and that my MRI comes back clean. I've been clean for the past 4 years now and am just hoping and praying that everything is okay.
