Hello friends. I just wanted to post a quick update. My dad had surgery on Wednesday to fix his abdominal wall. He went home on Friday and seemed to be doing pretty good, besides being loopy from the pain meds. This morning my mom text me while I was at church and said he was having extreme pain in his right leg and couldn’t walk. She called an ambulance and they came and got him.
We’ve been at the hospital for a few hours now. My sister and I are in the really nice atrium area of the hospital, since the ER room was so small. My mom is with my dad. We haven’t heard much, except that they think it might be a blood clot in his leg. They took him to do an ultrasound a couple hours ago, but I haven’t heard anything yet. I will post an update tomorrow, and if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you can see my updates as well. (If you want to that is!) 6:01 pm
So I posted this half an hour ago and we just saw a text from my mom saying his artery in his leg is completely blocked and they may have to do surgery. Trying to get more info now. 6:30 pm
His surgery went great! There was a small chance he could have lost his leg, but the procedure worked! All limbs intact! Praise the Lord! He will be in the hospital for a few days. They think the clot came from his heart. Praise God it moved to his leg & didn’t kill him! We are heading back to the hospital in a little bit. Thank you for prayers! 11:15am Monday
