Re: Serious prayers needed!

Dad update:
Still sedated and intubated. Chest X-rays were taken this morning but they haven't come back with the results yet. E coli was found in the lungs but good news is that one of the antibiotics that he's been on from the beginning covers that. So fever is gone for now, sitting pretty at 98.5. Also blood sugar is way down to almost normal, which is one less thing to worry about. Lungs still have fluid but they are still trying to drain. Heart is still pumping on its own so that's good too. In other news, mom was admitted to lafayette general yesterday with anemia and double pneumonia..she received 2 pints of blood and antibiotics and is feeling much better, she should be released today. I'm not sure I love 2015 so far..thank you for the continued prayers..

Re: Serious prayers needed!

From Jimmy:
He is still sedated at the moment, I have been down and out with a cold. So I have pretty much been banned from the hospital. The plan is to try and wake him again tomorrow morning.
Mom is doing a lot better, but she will require heart surgery in the very near future. She is still in the hospital, but we are hopeful she will be released tomorrow.

I wish people would stop saying rights are protected by the constitution.
The Constitution protects nothing. Neither does it grant us our rights. The Constitution only outlines the restraints
upon the government
, and recognizes those rights all people are inherently born with.
The act of restraining the government, ensuring for time eternal the rights enshrined in The Constitution, is our responsibility to shoulder-- the courage, honor, and arms of all of us people who believe in it.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

they are having a rough time.....:(

Update: lung doctor wanted to try and see if Dad can breathe on his own, so they backed off of the sedation. He woke up and was somewhat responsive but still fighting the tube too much. His lungs are working but not as good as the Dr would like so they put him back to sleep and we will keep waiting to see if more fluid can drain off. There is improvement from the last time they took him off sedation which is great news! He also is holding steady with no fever, normal blood pressure and normal blood sugar. Thank you for praying, keep em coming as we are not out of the woods yet

Yesterday at 2:58pm ·



Family update:
I'm not sure why God thinks we are so strong but I get it..no need to pack more on. Dad is the same as earlier, mom is being held another night and will control some heart issues she is having with medication until dad is out of the woods. She will eventually need surgery but her dr is also dad's dr and can monitor her when he is overseeing dad. Jimmy is sick and has been banned from the hospital until he's better so Ashley is taking care of him..I'm at the walk in clinic with Rachael bc she is also sick..thank goodness aunt Stephanie is here to help with mom and Rachael and uncle Jeff is in town and taking shifts with me at dads side. Please, whoever put this curse on us..make it stop!!! Keep the prayers coming..

Yesterday at 7:04pm

Update:
Dad is pretty much the same..stable but still sedated and intubated. They've decided to wait till tomorrow to try to take him off of sedation again. Yesterday was pretty rough on him when he woke up. Mom is getting another 2 pints of blood and they will keep her overnight again..Jimmy and Rachael are both stuck at home sick but taking meds to get them better..Jeff is on the way to stay with Dad so I can go home and get some sleep
12 hours ago


Update:
Dad is pretty much the same as earlier, stable and sleeping. Tomorrow they will try to take him off sedation again. It really depends on how his lungs react to breathing on their own..mom is feeling 100% better and will hopefully be released tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, I have caught whatever is going around and am now sick and can't go stay with Dad..making a dr appt tomorrow morning and hopefully nipping this thing in the bud. Thankfully, my uncle Mitch is on his way into town to help out as well. Times like these truly make you appreciate your family. As hard as things are right now, my heart is so full from all of the love we are receiving..thank you to everyone and let's hope that whenever I post tomorrow, it will be great and fantastic news. Now it's NyQuil time for me..

They really need some prayers and good vibes sent their way.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

I've definitely been keeping Corky & family in my thoughts and prayers. I've had a few health scares with my dad this past year and I know how stressful it can be. Nothing but positive energy for them. Get well soon Corky!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Good thoughts and prayers for him and his family

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Another update as of an hour ago:

Not much change since earlier today.. They are waiting for a room at Lafayette General so Dad can have his cardiologist as well as a pulmonary specialist on hand. Mom is out of the hospital and feeling one hundred percent better! We are all on the mend..and a huge thank you to my amazing friends for their help and support.. Thank you Kristine for cooking dinner for Jonathan, the kids and myself..thank you to Meridth for watching the kids so I could go to the Dr and try to get myself well..and a huge thank you to Desiree for driving all the way to Lafayette from Houston for a day to help with kids, help cook dinner and clean house and just sit in the hospital with me for hours while we watched over dad. There aren't too many friends like you who would do that, and I lucked out when I decided to be your best friend allll those years ago. Love you all!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Christi, those are 2 different years, correct? One is 2006 and my guess is the other is 2009.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Just seeing this.

Prayers for St. Corky and his family.  Good people.  Stay strong!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Chuck, they are two different years...  and they are 2006 and 2009.. I think 2009 was our last one.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Update on dad:
He is now on the pulmonary floor at Lafayette General. His heart looks good, lungs look much better. He is not responding as much as the dr wants when he comes off of sedation. He's going to keep trying to get him to wake up and follow commands. Prayers still needed but it looks like we are taking a few baby steps in the right direction of a very long journey..

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Update on Dad(St. Corky):
He had a rough morning..blood pressure was 200/53 and heart rate was way up. The dr thinks he may have had the beginnings of another heart attack. They were able to stabilize him and has been transferred to ICU. They will bring him back to the cath lab to see what is going on. His lungs still look clear so that is good. But his temperature is back up to 102. I'll update when there is more info.

Pac He will be transferred to ICU after the procedure, then hopefully back to the rehab. When he gets back to rehab I will update with a room number.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

From MT:
We just had our own miracle, Corky is now off ventilator. He is still very groggy and has a long way to go, but this a huge step in his recovery

Officially Licensed WhoDatZone Rally Ape™

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Damn good to hear.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

GREAT!!!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Update on Dad:
Seeing him without the ventilator is just enough to fill my heart with joy! Add in the fact that he is awake and talking and I can't even begin to describe the level of relief we feel! He is still confused about a few things and really REALLY wants to leave the hospital but that is to be expected. Hoping to have him moved to a regular room tomorrow and out of ICU..thank you to everyone who has been praying for his recovery, this truly was a miracle and we are incredibly moved by the outpouring of love from everyone. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

Great news.

Re: Serious prayers needed!

That's great!

Re: Serious prayers needed!

I just a quick update on St. Corky:

He is finally out of the bed and sitting in a chair now. He has had to shake the cobwebs from the last few days, but is starting to recover full cognitive ability. He has quite a bit of physical and  occupational therapy to go through to get all his motor skills back and up to strength. We still have a long road to recovery ahead, but it is definitely the right road. He is in room 617 at Lafayette General for the time being. if any of that changes I will let you guys know.

I would like to thank everyone for the good thoughts and prayers you sent to Pop and the family's way. They sure did help!
