Update on Dad #2

Many thanks again to those who have prayed for or asked about my dad.  I just found out they are on their way home from the hospital.  There is no clear diagnosis for why this has happened twice.  So far, his heart checks out okay, and there is no evidence of any type of stroke, but it is certain that he is having ongoing circulatory issues.  They may be making some changes with blood pressure medications and using some surgical stockings to keep adequate pressure in his legs, and he is still on track for an arterial stent placement in a few weeks.

I appreciate you and will keep you posted.

Update on My Dad

For those of you who had seen the Twitter or Facebook status regarding my dad, I wanted to give a further update.  Thanks so much for your prayers.

As I mentioned in that update, my dad was taken via ambulance to the hospital today (in Tennessee).  He had passed out, and after he woke up, his blood pressure was checked and was extremely low.  This was the second time in three weeks, so they again went to the hospital.

The ER doctors wanted him to stay overnight (again) for observation and further testing.  For now he is stable and has been moved into a regular room.

My mom and brother are very tired as well from the long day in the ER with him, so prayer for everyone would be much appreciated.  I will give further updates when I can.

Again, thank you.
