Monday report

We got up early this morning to get ready so when I talked to the Dr., we could find out what time to go in for Papa`s check up. When I did get the nurse, she said that it wasn`t necessary to bring him in since he was doing pretty good. No physical signs that the fall had hurt anything so that was good news. Now, he can check him out when we go Friday to get the staples out. Papa kept pulling the bandages off and the turbin holding it on so I just took it off this morning. It has healed pretty good and doesn`t look too bad without the gause so that makes it easier for both of us! Bill spent the night on Saturday to help out if needed but we did fine, I enjoyed his company though. Tom and Jane stayed with Tom so I could go to Bill`s house for Reed`s birthday lunch. It was nice to see him enjoy his made to order lunch and to see him on his birthday. Kevin and Megan came to visit and brought Addy. I enjoyed seeing them and getting to spend some time with Addy. I got to give her a bottle, so sweet! This morning, we went out to the drug store then Walmart, where I pushed Tom in a wheelchair. It was much easier and faster. Jane and heston came over for a quick visit after lunch. He was full of energy and enjoyed playing with Papa`s hat and the flashlight. Tomorrow, I should hear from my Dr. about the time for my procedure on Wednesday. The girls have told me to just take one day at a time and not worry about things we can`t do anything about. So that is what we are doing! We will worry about Wednesday, tomorrow! Hope all of you are doing well. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers that have been lifted up for us. Keep them coming.........

Saturday morning at the emergency room

Just an update for Gaga here so we all can keep her and Papa in our prayers this week, it will be a long one for them both. Early this morning, Papa fell and hit his head, gashing it pretty good. Bill came right over and helped get him up to a chair. They decided he needed to go to the emergency room to be checked out. Well, he had cat scan and 4-5 staples put in the back of his head. The cat scan showed he had two small pockets of bleeding on his brain. It was decided that it would be best for him to go on home and let Gaga keep a close eye on him for the next few days. Tom and I met them at the hospital and got them settled back home after lunch. Bill came to check on them and will come back tonight to spend the night in case Mom needs him. Anne and Zack will take supper and help out then for a bit. It is going to take everyone to get through this next week! Monday morning back to the dr. for Papa. Wednesday, outpatient surgery for Gaga on her eye to get rid of that carsinoma and back for recheck on Thursday. Friday, Papa goes back to get the staples out. Pray for them this week!!
