YAY

Dad got out of the hospital today. So all is well. When I called he was happily enjoying his chocolate chip cookie with Jacob, so you know he is back to his old self.
He is not on his way home yet though, because he has to see Dr. Loggie on Monday, but to the best of my knowledge they will leave shortly after that.

Well my dad is sitting-up and doing some walking around today. He is doing well and says that he doesn't hurt too bad. He is eating some things like Jello, because he is still on his liquid diet. He hopes that his hospital stay will be short and sweet, because he is already complaining about the hospital bed. :)

Big Day

I'm sure that you all will be glad to hear that my dad is doing well and trying to get comfortable in his hospital room. The surgery was 31/2 hours long and went well, but not as planned. Dr. Loggie was able to drain his stomach of 10L of fluid, but due to him being anemic, was unable to do all things he intended. He decided that the risk of taking out dad's spleen out weighed the benifits my dad would recieve.
Dad is in room #5123 at Creighton. The address is:
Creighton University Medical Center
601 North 30th street
Omaha, NE 68131
We would like to thank you for your concern and well wishes, and I will keep you updated on what Dr. Loggie is planning for dad's future and his condition while he is in Omaha.

Monday 4-11

Well they arrived yesterday evening around dinner time all safe and sound. Today, they have admitted dad to the hospital and will be hooking him up to the i.v and such to get him ready for surgery. Keep him in your prayers tomorrow for the big day. He should be done late in the evening, like around 10-11, so I will poston here as soon as I know how it went.

Getting There

Mom, Dad, Jacob, and Bev all left Florida yesterday around noon with their sights set on Omaha. As of tonight, they are stopping just outside of Chicago. They plan on arriving tomorrow, but with the way it sounds that traffic has been, we will see if that happens.
The only news from the car ride is that Jacob is going crazy, he can't stand being in the car that long.
