Here's the Scoop


Okay.  So here's the scoop on my  Daddy.
He went to have his CT scan on Wednesday, and the doc told him "It's not just worse, it's a hell of a lot worse!", so he sent him to the hospital where he was admitted to the ICU.  That was Wednesday.
On Friday, Daddy had "brain surgery".  The doc drilled two holes in the right side of his skull.  One to relieve the pressure and the other to allow all the fluid to come out (or something like that).
Over the course of three days, they drained over a pint and a half of fluid from his brain!
Unbelievable, i know!
But now he is acting more like Daddy and sounding much more like Daddy.
They shaved half of his head, so it took a while for me to get used to looking at him like that.  I've always seen him with a head full of hair.
But i went over there tonight and shaved the rest of his head (that wasn't covered by the bandage and tape). 

I'm just relieved that he is sounding more "like himself" now.
I can breathe a sigh of relief now.

So thank you for all your prayers!
I don't exactly do that myself, but i believe it certainly can't hurt! =-)
thank you!

I think everything is gonna be alright.

Hope you have a WONDERFUL day!



  1. Winging prayers your way for you and your Dad..

  2. Glad your Dad is on the mend. I think it was a good thing for you to shave the other half of his head so he can start fresh. Last time I looked, there wasn't a new trend for half shaved, half long hair. Wait a minute, doesn't Rihanna wear her hair that way? I beg to differ. Sorry. Your dad could have started something new with the older generation. LOL!

  3. I am so glad your dad is doing better. I went to the funeral home for a friend last night whose husband was killed in a motorcycle accident - she is due with their first child in two weeks. I HATE motorcycles. I hope your dad will continue to improve and we're all thankful that he is alive!

  4. So glad everything sounds a bit better and fingers crossed that he continues on the up and up.

    I've left your Quiltporn blog an award over on my blog, but I get that they are a bit like chainmail and you're probably a little pre-occupied at the mo so only take it up if you feel like it.

    I'll keep sending virtual get better vibes your Daddy's way.

  5. Thank you SO much everyone!

  6. Excellent! Will keep sending Feelbetters. He might like the new look, ya know? ;0)
