a little something different

I'm going to post these pictures the *old fashioned* way...

Goodness the pics are big, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it.
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for our family; and if I may ask, please continue to do so.
Tomorrow morning Chris' mom has her appointment to find out the results from her bone marrow test, we're praying that the cancer is not in her marrow. If it is, I think they have to completely change the kind of treatments she'll have and they'll be worse.
As for my dad, I don't really even know what to say about him. I went up there today. He just really isn't himself and it's kind of freaking me out a little. He's still very disoriented and agitated. They've had to keep him restrained quite a bit because he keeps trying to pull the breathing machine out of his nose. He's breathing on his own now, but they still have a tube going down his nose to make sure he's getting enough oxygen. When Mom was asking him questions today he was giving really weird answers; when she asked where he was he said *California*, but he says he lives in Missouri. (He was born & raised in Missouri and we lived in CA quite a bit when I was growing up.) We had gone down to the cafeteria for lunch & when we came back up the nurse said he'd been really agitated while we were gone & she wasn't sure if we should go in. She said she'd let us in for about 5 minutes to see if we could calm him down, but if we couldn't we'd have to leave. Unfortunately he didn't calm down so we left. We decided to just to back to their place since it wouldn't do any good to wait around there. After a couple of hours they called & said the doctor had been in and ordered a CT Scan on his head. I think even the doctors are worried about his confusion & agitation. At first they were thinking it was the meds they were giving him, but now they're checking things out. Mom, Haley, Uncle David & I got to talking about it and are wondering if when his blood oxygen levels were so low on Tuesday maybe his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long. I don't really want to think about what that could mean. It appears that he's healing very well physically, but mentally things aren't going too great right now. I know this is really hard on my mom, I can't imagine what she's going through.
Anyway, if you could still be praying for our family I would really appreciate it.

Ah, sweetie, I'm so sorry you and your family are going through this. It is never easy to see loved ones go through these struggles with health. I'm keeping you in my prayers.

Jonathan is adorable as usual. I think you could wallpaper your house with his pictures.

Just a thought ... is it possible he could be having "hospital psychosis?" this happens with people in the hospital sometimes. It happened to my grandmother and a friend of mine.

You and your family are still on my daily TAWG.
