Long night

We are not yet sure if the procedure they did yesterday will do the trick. The coughing up blood has slowed down for now. Where they went in through the femoral artery in his thigh, there is an enormous bruise! The doc warned he'd be very sore. They weren't able to get into the arteries on the left, so if he starts bleeding again, they may need to go in again. Hoping not! When he woke up last night, he said "Why can't I move my left arm?" Not something you want to hear! They are pretty sure it's just from bad positioning during the procedure and it should be better within the week. HOPEFULLY! He's supposed to be in a video game tournament next weekend.

I got a few more hours sleep last night. This morning after breakfast I did 10 flights of stairs. I'll be going home tonight and hubby will stay here. Not sure yet when Kendall will get to go home. We're just taking one day at a time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Illness is never fun to deal with.

Try to keep the stress down, be kind to yourself and get some sleep if possible.

Take care of yourself too. I am afraid I might be tempted to eat right through the stress of soemthing like this.

Know that there are alot of prayers coming your way.

We are continuing to pray for your whole family!
Glad to hear that you were able to get in a bit of exercise and some rest! As you know - you MUST take care of yourself before you are able to take care of others.

Bless you, my friend -
