Quick Update

Just a quick update on dad.

Mom said the doctor told her that dad has two lesions they're pretty concerned about. One on the Medulla, and one on the Corpus Callosum. They're going to give dad steroid infusions, and plasmapheresis, which have both helped him in the past. We estimate that dad will be at the hospital for about two weeks (because of the plasmapheresis, which will be done every other day, and the doctors want to do 6 or 7 treatments). So, since mom stays with dad like the wonderful wife she is, my sisters and I will be hanging out at the house, taking care of the barn chores, grocery shopping, and doing house work. And of course, I'll be working three days a week. :)

Thank you all for your sweet comments of encouragement, and for your prayers! Dad is pretty impatient, and he's ready to get back home. But when you're in the hospital, haha, who wouldn't be? :) We just keep praying that God's will be done, and that He will strengthen dad, heal him and bring him back home to us when He's ready. :)
