Update on the Bleeding

The doctor was in this evening and did another flush of Dad's nose to clean it out, etc. He was also able to find the source of the bleeding. It is a surface bleed in the nose itself. Because it is a surface bleed, it doesn't look like surgery will be necessary. He repacked Dad's nose with dissolvable foam and another flush will be done tomorrow.

Continue to pray for both Dad and Mom.

I'm glad he is progressing well since the surgery, though I'm sure he is still in discomfort. Thanks for keeping all of us posted. We will continue praying.
