Bloggy Break...

Hey Guys! Just wanted to tell you all I am taking a small bloggy break. I am down in Mobile with my family tending to my dad. For those that don't know, he has had a lot of major surgery lately from what started as an appendicitis. It started when they were in Nashville in Feb, and after a few days of pain he went to the ER in Monroeville where they did an emergency appendectomy. Two weeks after surgery he was still not getting better and had fever and throwing up and they started treating him for an infection from surgery. More BS for several days and finally he came to a different hospital in Mobile with a new Doctor who had to do a 2nd surgery, and a very intense one. The first surgery never removed his appendix and it had ruptured. His 2nd surgery was to remove it and repair damage to colon and intestines. He has been in ICU in Mobile ever since.
We have all been getting a lot of phone calls and stuff and its really hard to be responsive to that right now so please don't take offense. We appreciate all the support and concern and are using all our energy to stay strong for him right now. No one is really to to phone calls or visits at this time.
We are staying with my Aunt in Mobile so that is very nice to have family here and CC has been taking us back and forth to the hospital and feeding us etc.
I know that when my dad is better he will really appreciate all of the comments on facebook and stuff so thanks for doing that!
If you are a prayer warrior, please pray specifically for him to grow stronger, to have some form of improvement that will provide him with the encouragement that he desperately needs right now, and for him to recover enough to take out his nose tubes. Those would make him much more comfortable for sure.
Thanks again for all the support and I will blog again once things settle down

xoxo

So sorry this has all happened... I hate that there were complications from the first "sugery", but glad he is in better hands now. We'll be PRAYING hard for your dad. Hope you are feeling ok and managing the stress this is undoubtedly causing. Please let me know if there is anything we can do for you guys up in Nashville while you're away!
