Monday Update On Dad

Dad was re-admitted to St. Luke's this afternoon and has spent seven hours in an ER room. He has lost blood, probably due to a recurring problem in his digestive system that has been a problem for several years. The doctor surmised he might have had a mini-stroke or seizure, and the term TIA was used. They will run more tests in the coming days. There may be Medicaid issues dealing with leaving the rehab nursing home and going back into the hospital. We are blessed that Susan Jones has been with Dad this afternoon and evening. I talked with Dad and he sounded good! I told him he would do anything to miss a day of therapy. He laughed, a very good sign. Thanks for all your prayers!
God bless,
Luke 18:1
