Thank You!

Hi Friends! Well, we (mama and I) got to the hospital a few minutes after ten this morning, and my dad was sitting in the chair half dressed, and ready to go home. In less than 30 minutes after we arrived, we were in the car leaving the hospital. I talked to Anne Collins (she's a Physicians Assistant, and just the sweetest, bestest person who cares for my dad!) and she said he seems to respond well to the IV Lasix, and just bring him back if the fluid starts building up again. They sent him home with some antibiotics - STRONG ones! - and no other changes to his meds. We have a regular appt. with his primary Dr. next week, so we'll see what happens then.

He wanted me to stop and get him some cinnamon rolls or honey buns on the way home. He hadn't eaten any dinner last night or breakfast this morning and was hungry. I wouldn't do it, but as soon as we got him home my mom got started making him biscuits, gravy and sausage while I ran up to get his new antibiotics. He ate a big meal, then went to bed. I think he was weaker and more tired than he realized.

Thank you all once again for the prayers and good thoughts. Maybe we'll have a little bit of a break before 'the next time'. I know I for one could use a break!

Don't forget, tomorrow night Midnight eastern time is the end of entry for the giveaway. If all is well, I'll do the drawing sometime Saturday and post it by Sunday evening.

Blessings Friends! Becky

That's wonderful news Becky! I'm glad he could eat something and rest. Glad too that the IV lasix works well. Hope all of you get a good night's rest. Your plants are probably happy after the light showers we've had all day!
