Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep
family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words
of hope and encouragement.


Dad was admitted to the Hospital on October 28th around 3am.  He had
suffered a stroke effecting the left frontal lobe.

On October 31st he was removed from the ventilator and was responsive to
commands and had periods of time that he was awake.


November 1st the team of Doctors determined that he was a candidate for a
procedure that would evacuate some of the blood from the brain.  By doing
this procedure it is one less thing my Dad's body has to do in his
recovery.  He was ventilated again to protect his airways and again one
less thing for Dad to have to do after the surgery.


The procedure was successful and again they removed him from the
ventilator.  About twenty-four hours after the procedure he taken off the
ventilator.

Once removed he seemed to struggle with his breathing.  He maintained
until Friday evening but he could no longer sustain on his own.  On Friday
evening November 4th he was placed back on the ventilator. 


Dad is still responsive to our voices and has short periods of being
awake. 

For now he is resting as we continue to meet with his team of Doctor's to
determine the next steps.


We decided this was the best way to update family and friends in and efficient
manner.


Thank you for visiting.
