Good news--at my dad's monthly weigh-in, he is HOLDING at 145, about the same as last month!
The last couple of days have been difficult though, because they are keeping Dad's drainage tube closed longer, so his stomach can HOLD his medicine long enough to absorb it. He quickly becomes very uncomfortable with it closed. Mom is planning to talk with the charge nurse tomorrow about whether the benefits of the medication are worth the discomfort.
Lois & baby Daniel's plans for a visit are on HOLD at the moment. They have both been ill with a serious cough. Lois also has Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in her wrists. I believe she is planning to seek medical treatment for that when she comes to the States.
We are thankful that God is HOLDING us in His hand!
"If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me."
