WooHoo! He's doing better, fingers crossed!

Friday, August 13, 2010

He was still bleeding badly this morning so I took him back to the doctor (thankfully he was in today!).

Poor Pop had to pretty much just lay there for over an hour before they got to him - but the bleeding had lessened with his arm elevated. Seems it was mostly from one area and the doctor used some sort of "cauterizing stick" and so far it hasn't re-bled.

I am not to wash the wound - just run some soapy water and then clear water over it - and re-bandage tomorrow.

Fingers & toes are crossed and my prayers are still going up for Pop.

Thank you all for responding with your prayers. Even well wishes are great for those who might not believe in prayers.

I love all of you.
Linda & Pop

    My fingers and toes are crossed too. Plus I'm adding a few prayers. Is Pop staying with you during this time or are you running over to him. Just take goode care of yourself too.

Love you
