Life Has Kind of Halted

Managed to get a little bit of school done this morning. Me and Grace went to the hospital after lunch to sit with dad and mom. Most of the day dad did real well, just weak. After we left around 3 he had another TIA (pre stroke episode) and then another around 5. Medication they were using just wasn't doing the job, switched over to a heparin drip tonight. Praying this will get the episdoes under control before he goes in to a full blown stroke. Mom is real tired and not able to stay up there all night. It is hard to leave him there through the night until the next morning. Please continue to pray that dad will repond to medication, that mom's stamina will hold out, and strength for me and my sister to hold everything together. Thanks so much for your comments of pray and encouragement.

Oh Diane! (((hugs))) Praying for all of you! I'm so sad to read all your family is going through. I really hope that everything starts to improve for your parents health.

I will keep praying for all of you. I so wish none of you had to go through any of these trials right now.

And don't worry about schooling--living & learning go hand-in-hand. Every day your daughter is learning about courage, compassion, strength and caring. Those lessons are just as valuable. :)

As a nurse, I know the types of tests your father is being put through and just how difficult this time is for the whole family. Please let me know if you have any questions.
