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!
