    Huge prayers for Robin and Alan...and hopefully the uncle will have some legal recourse later on, or someone in the family can get new workers for Alan.

    Grandpa 9/28/2008

    So far, he's still stable. I went and visted in the hospital - he's in CCU - and I really wish I didn't. He's not "there" at all. He's got all sorts of thing hooked up, a feeding tube, breathing tube, etc. He was knocked out the whole time and didn't respond much other than groaning. He's incredibly swollen all over. He looks like a huge man and reality he's a very scrawny, skinny man from not eating the past few months.

    It really just wasn't a good state to see him in and I wish I hadn't. He looked horrible.


    They're going to try and get him to come around more tomorrow, hopefully get him up and moving sometime this week. Honestly, with the way he looks, it really doesn't look like they'll be doing much with him.

    It's difficult to see him in that state, I know. When my sister was in ICU for an aortic aneurysm, I thought that her face was the size of a basketball. I couldn't believe how puffy she looked. She was in ICU for 2 1/2 months and yet she came home from the hospital, so don't lose hope. We're all praying for you and your Grandpa. Keep the faythe.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    Thanks Medusa, I hope he has a recovery like you sister.


    One thing I wanted to add, made me a bit happy/proud of myself. I was talking to my aunt who's down from Michigan for a while. She said she was talking to my grandmother and that my grandmother said I was the best help and the best out of all the grandkids while dealing with my grandpa, that I knew what to do and how to care for him properly. She told her she feels most relaxed and comfortable when I'm around to help.

    Visited Papa/Grandpa today after work. While he's still in bad shape, he was a little bit awake today. He tried talking but I think his throat is very sore, we could barely make out what he was trying to say. He did try singing a song. That's something he's ALWAYS done. Even when he's been sick before, he's tried singing songs.

    They had to give him more blood today, they had just started that when we got there.


    He was responsive to our voices though, he knew who I was, my aunts, and my grandmother. It was really cute when he reached up for my grandmother's hand.


    While he's got a long, long, long way to go - I hope they good day he had today continues to improve and we'll be on our way to getting our papa/grandpa/dad/Kenneth back.

    Robin had her CT Scan done yesterday. They found a spot on her liver that wasn't there from previous scans that they did in South Carolina. I don't even have words right now.. I just hope everyone continues their prayers for Robin and I.


    Kay, I'm glad to hear your grandfather is improving some. I hope he continues to improve, and I have been praying for him and your family..

    No words are necessary; PT prayers will take over from here.

    Just a bit of an update. It seems grandpa/papa has taken a turn for the worst. He has an extremely high fever and isn't responding to tube feeding.

    I'm waiting to hear from my dad and then my sister and I will be heading the the hospital.
