You may have noticed I wasn't around here on Friday... well, I ended up taking off work & was up at the hospital with my daddy.
Actually, my dad went in the hospital on Thursday. Around 2am to be exact.
To make a very long & graphic & awful story really short, he had some issues with his colon... & my brother picked him &my mom up, got them to the ER & my dad had lost so much blood, they immediately admitted him.
The weekend involved a lot of uncontrollable bleeding, enough that my dad had to get 7 (or 8, I lost count) units of blood... my dad being in Critical Care Unit since passing out & having heart issues isn't a good thing... & bleeding they couldnt stop with concerns my dad was going to end up in a surgery removing even more of his colon that he couldnt afford to loose....
It was a crazy weekend to say the least...
a lot of emotion, a lot of living on pins & needles...
& I'll jump ahead of the story & let you know by the end, after a roller coaster of wondering if they got the bleeding to stop, it FINALLLLY stopped on Sunday morning. Whew
I went in after church to visit him & he looked SO MUCH BETTER... color in his face, swelling down, even sitting up!!! He had been down on his back for 3 straight days... & even real food. The first food he had had since Wednesday....
I'm getting ready to call dad & see how his night went & praying that there was no more issues & everything is still going smoothly....
So now we're still holding our breath & praying the bleeding is 100% stopped ... lift a prayer with us, will you?
& dont think I only sat up at the hospital...
It was still a weekend FULL of busy...
... I had to give Bruno a bath
... I had a photo session for our friends new baby
... I had MSM
... I had our JOY Bible Study
... I even squeezed in a run
.. & I am EXHAUSTED.
I ended up missing the reception of a friend's wedding
I ended up not getting all my Etsy stuff done
I ended up not getting the editing I needed done
I ended up not getting my house cleaned up
I ended up not getting my grocery shopping done
... but it's all good
just thankful that things looks to be on an upswing right now.
You take what you can get.
How was your weekend?
