After a very scary couple of days, Dad is feeling better. When I left the hospital yesterday to come back home to MS, he was sitting up in his chair, enjoying his first meal of "real" food. The doctors are trying to regulate his blood thinner medication so he can go home. We think that might be another couple of days. He'll be glad to get back home and off this roller coaster ride of health. I know he'll be as scared as we are of another blood clot going to his heart, but the filter is in place to block 99 percent, and he'll be on coumanin (the blood thinner) for many years.
He feels good except that now he's having pain in his right knee. They took an X-ray today. We'll find out what's going on with that soon. He may have twisted it when he fell.
I have thanked God so many times for sparing his life that the prayer runs through my head over and over and over. Thank you for yours.
Here's a picture of Abby Kate and William playing in the "Carnes' waiting room." It was very comfortable and our family pretty much took it over for the last week.
