News on Terry

First and Foremost, Brian’s stepdad Terry, is in Minnesota, like I said yesterday, he had surgery and things were looking up, that was yesterday.  Around 2:30 or so, Karmen was supposed to head to the airport and they noticed that Terry stomach had swollen, so the doctors did a scan on him and found that a staple from his previous surgery had come loose and poked a hole in his bile duct and bile had leaked out.  Not good.  So they rushed in into surgery to repair it.  As of this morning, he was in ICU, on a ventilator.  He had a 102 fever, and a blood pressure of 87 over 34.  Actually, his fever had come down, and his blood pressure had risen from what is was in the middle of the night, so he was already getting better.  The doctors are confident that he can fight off this infection, but it will be a long, hard fight.  Please keep him in your prayers, as he needs strength and a miracle right now, as does his whole family.  Karen and Karmen are sleep deprived and worn out.  They have been through the wringer and have been trying to be strong through this whole thing, but it is very trying on them both. 

On the home front, Craig and Brian can’t understand what is happening and they both want to be up there.  Craig actually left this morning to go up there.  Terry elected to have this surgery, he was tired of feeling sick all the time and being in pain.  He wanted all this to be over, and the doctors were confident that they could fix him.  He prayed about it, and this is where the Lord led him.   The Lord will take care of him now.

Second, Brian’s Great Uncle Armond, fell off of the ladder and is in ICU in California.  He is getting better daily, but he could use some prayers too! 

Also, Ron is having an MRI tomorrow to find out what is going on with his shoulder.  I hope it is nothing serious and can be fixed with a few simple massages.  Wouldn’t that be nice!

Well, I have been shuffling Gracie from one place to the other, and I think when Karmen comes back we might change a few things, i.e. nap time.  I kind of like it when Gracie goes to bed at 8, she is asleep at 8:15.  She has played so hard these past two weeks, and I thank each of you that has helped me out, I really appreciate it!!
