Wednesday's Update

Dad had two more episodes with his heart last night where the heart rate was really high and the beat irregular. This was sustained over approximately ten minutes each time. He is back on an IV drip medication to try to get this under control. He is rather tired today.

More blood was drawn today for blood cultures to check to see if the yeast infection is decreasing. We should know some results in 24 hours in regards to this.

Dad was able to talk to Holly on the phone last evening for her birthday. He didn't talk for long and it wore him out, but she was very glad to be able to talk with Dad on her birthday.

Yesterday when asked, my Dad was actually able to tell them his name and birth date. This is a first in over 1 1/2 weeks.

Addendum: He had three more episodes with his heart this evening so will be on an IV drip medication all night.

I don't comment often, but want you to know I am still praying for your Dad and checking in on his progress reports. I am also praying for all of you as I'm sure it must be a wearying and stressful situation.
