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

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..

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

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..
