Surgery Update

Posted on

My Dad’s hip surgery went well even though it  started a lot later than we had originally anticipated.  They were supposed to start at 4:30 on Wednesday but didn’t even make the first incision until 9:30 at night.  We finally left the hospital after seeing my Dad at 3 am.  We got about 3 hours of sleep before heading back.  Somewhere in those 3 hours my Dad got irritated with being intubated and took it out itself.  They waited to see if he would do well breathing on his own, but that wasn’t meant to be.  He was re-intubated and sedated all day yesterday.  We need prayers that they will be able to wean him off of the ventilator today and that he can breathe on his own.  He can’t move forward with anything until we get through this step.  I finally came home last night after being at the hospital for the past 36 hours and I was awake for 33 of them so if my post jumps around please forgive me.  I’ll be headed back tomorrow to give my Mom a break and a chance to go home. 

Thanks for all of the prayers so far.  Please keep them coming!

    I have been away from the internet for about a week now because I was busy working on a big project. It is finally done and had a few minutes to catch up
    on my blogs….when I read yours….I went “OH! NO!”…

    First of all, if you don’t want to be on facebook or twitter (in my case too) you
    do not go there….you are still going to have your blog right? So all the inspiration
    is here. I didn’t read anywhere in your post that you wouldn’t continue here, you
    were just adding them to your sidebar right? so …..What’s the problem? Notta!

    I am glad you decided to continue your blog. You are a great inspiration for demos
    that do not have an Upline’s support! Thank you for that!

    BTW hope all is well with DAD and he will be in my thoughts and prayers for a very
    speedy recovery.

    Stampingly yours,

  25. I’m sending every ounce of good energy I have to your dad, Jenn. I know it’s hard in a situation like this but try not to let yourself get too run down. If you need ANYTHING, let me know.



  26. Sending you big hugs and keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers Jenn!
