i did it!!!

I managed to post every day in November. I know there were a couple of days where I didn't say anything of interest, but for the most part I think I did pretty good. We'll see if I can keep up the streak. I kind of like posting something every day.

We finally got some good news today, and boy did we need it. Chris' mom's bone marrow test came back clean! Thank you, God. She'll start her treatments next Friday, and have one every three weeks. With a scan to check progress after two rounds. So, now we just need to pray that the treatments are effective...

As for my dad, the CT scan came back clear, so he hasn't had a stroke or anything like that. He's still really confused and he gets really agitated when his morphine wears off, so for right now they're keeping him pretty doped up. Unfortunately they're having to keep him restrained because he's still trying to pull out the oxygen tube in his nose. I guess his oxygen levels are still really low, and his carbon dioxide levels are high, which makes for a bad combination. The doctor said today that it would probably be late next week before he really starts coming out of this *weirdness* he's in. My uncle asked today if he'd be like his old self when he comes out of it, and the doctor seems to think he will. So, that's good news. That's one thing I've been kind of scared about; that he wouldn't be *Dad* when he got out.

Well, thanks again for all of your prayers. We're at Mom & Dad's tonight & will go to the hospital tomorrow to visit him. I'll keep y'all posted on his progress.
