I am posting the news here because it is encouraging and inspiring.
I JUST talked to Connie....
DAD IS STABLE!!!!!!!!!
He is recovering in ICU. He has 2 chest tubes now.
The surgery was extensive. The doctor had to scrape the one lung. The puss was so hard from the pneumonia. They have it 95% unblocked. If they scraped anymore, it would have caused a hole in the lung.
He was on a ventilator for the oxygen to get to the good lung.
He was LITERALLY living on one lung. The doctor said as soon as it was scraped, the one lung inflated immediately.
Before surgery though, we almost lost him, the BP went down to 50. They had to get his BP up before surgery.
He is now on Morphine and BP Meds to keep the BP up.
He made it through the trifecta Connie said....3 surgeries.
They took the oxygen from 100% down to 70%.
Connie asked me to ask that the prayers continue for him and she too (along with Barb and me) REALLY appreciates all the prayers.
But this is proof that NO MATTER what life throws at you, we all have the fight in us.
Connie and I agree that I got my FIGHT from DADDY!!!! I think we are right there.
Have a GREAT day all!!!!!!!
EDIT: My fault, I asked Connie about how long they are giving him now. Noone is saying anything as of yet.
